Tea Party Recipes!!!!

I had such a fun time visiting all of the Virtual Tea Parties this week!!! There were so many lovely Tea Sets, and Yummy Snacks!!!

As promised today's post will incule the recipes used for my own little tea party. The first recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies can be found on Martha Stewarts Web Sight. They are so soft and chewy just the way my family likes them. The second recipe is from The All New Joy Of Cooking Cookbook. The recipe is as follows:

Ginger Snaps

Whisk Together-
3 3/4 C flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t soda
4 t ground ginger
1t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground clove
1/4 t salt

Beat on medium until fluffy and well blended-
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 2/3 C sugar

Add and beat until well combined-
2 L eggs
1/2 C dark molasses
2 t fresh lemon juice
1/4 finely grated lemon or orange zest

Stir in flour until well blended.
Roll dough into balls and then in sugar.

Bake at 350, for 10-13 minutes.


The girls also sipped warm Apple Spiced Tea . We added sugar to ours and a little cream too!!!

I hope every one enjoys the recipes. They're nothing fancy just tasty treats that make kids (and grown ups) smile.
