These little Neapolitan Tea Cookies are full of flavor–strawberry, coconut, and chocolate–perfect for your next tea party!

Just looking at them reminds me of family birthday celebrations with Angel Food Cake and mounds of Neapolitan Ice-Cream. 

And they are not that difficult to make. Simply divide your dough into three bowls and mix accordingly with the three flavors. Refrigerate, slice, and bake! It’s that simple.

Ingredients Needed to Make Neapolitan Tea Cookies

  • all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • butter, softened
  • granulated sugar
  • large egg
  • vanilla extract
  • sweetened coconut
  • unsweetened strawberry drink mix (like Kool-Aid)
  • semi-sweet chocolate, melted

Instructions for Making This Recipe

In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the large egg and vanilla extract.

Gradually mix in the flour mixture until it forms a nice dough.

Divide the dough into thirds and place in separate bowls. For each bowl, add one of the following mixtures: coconut, strawberry mix, and melted chocolate. Mix each well.

Line a 9″x5″ loaf pan with parchment paper with the ends extending over sides. Press the strawberry dough onto the bottom of the pan. Cover with a coconut layer, and top with the chocolate dough. Gently press layers together to seal. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours until firm.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove dough from pan and discard parchment. Cut dough into 3 lengthwise strips, then cut each into 1/4″ slices.

Place 1-inch apart on baking sheets covered with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Bake 9-11 minutes, until cookies are firm to the touch and just lightly browned on bottom. Cool on wire racks.

This recipe will make 90 small cookies.
