There’s a new recipe trending on TikTok — and it’s not chaffles or twisted bacon.
Fans of the hit Apple TV show “Ted Lasso” are making the series’ iconic biscuits in their own kitchens, and the result is a buttery delight.
In the show, Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from the Midwest hired to coach a pro soccer team in England despite knowing nothing about soccer, tries to win over the team’s owner, Rebecca Welton, by making his famous biscuit recipe.
What are biscuits in the U.K. are actually cookies in the U.S., and Ted’s shortbread cookies become a recurring theme in the series, which recently became the most Emmy-nominated freshman series ever with more than 20 nominations.
Jason Sudeikis, who plays Ted Lasso in the series, recently appeared on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna alongside fellow stars Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein to talk about season two of the show.
“We heard the real cookies are not that appetizing?” Jenna asked the cast.
Hannah Waddington, who plays team owner Rebecca in the show, admitted she wasn’t always a fan.
“I will be kind and say they are significantly better this season,” she said.
But the TikTok community seems to disagree with Waddington’s dislike of the biscuits.
“My wife wanted me to make her the ‘Ted Lasso’ biscuits, so I did,” shares one user, who simply says, “Mmm,” after tasting them.
“Bonus points if you put them in a pink box and enjoy,” says
