Tea Bag Sugar Cookies

Last week, Gramma hosted a "Downton Tea & Craft Evening" 
and graciously allowed Buttercup & I to tag along:)

And here is Gramma aka "Mrs Patmore", preparing proper English delicacies...

...such as Eccles cakes & miniature Farmhouse Mincemeat cakes- lush:)

Well, I was so psyched about this grand event
 that I pleaded to add a sweet to the spread: Tea Bag Sugar cookies.

To replicate these cookies, start with your favorite roll out sugar cookie recipe.
Then cut strips, notch the tops and using a straw, punch the hole.

Allow to cool completely and then string the "tea bags"- I used baker's twine & Designer Series Paper.

 Lastly I frosted the bottoms with pink candy melts & pink sugar- so dainty:)

Coupled with lovely China cups, the cookies were perfect for this event...

...and enjoyed by some truly elegant "Ladies"!

Can't wait for the next "Downton" evening to share with my Rosebud- 
she already has a taste for proper culture:)

And if you're local, you can come too!
Here are the next dates for the "Downton" Tea & Craft events:
June 5th @ 7pm
Sept 4th @ 7pm
Dec 4th @ 7pm
Contact Gramma for details!

  1. I will definitely have to try my hand at making these lovely tea bag cookies. They were delicious and I love them!

  2. Thanks, Ms C- they were a lot of fun to create and will be reappearing for a tea party birthday, I'm sure:)
