First, Karolin Schnoor makes some lovely folky and colorful pieces that are interactive (and inexpensive) too! You can "make" a beautiful owl, fox, rabbit, or squirrel for $6.80 (including shipping)! Or buy a very pretty card. Take a look:
Next, this delicious dish was posted and I made it this morning! YUM. It was really tasty. I am a huge fan of earl grey in all forms I have had it in!
EARL GREY BREAD PUDDING
AND! Here is my favorite earl grey treat recipe:
EARL GREY TEA COOKIES!! (they taste a lot like lemon poppyseed!)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
4 tbls earl grey tea leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces (or grated!)
1. heat oven to 375. pulse together all dry ingredients in food processor until tea leaves are pulverized. add vanilla, 1 tsp water, and butter. mix together until a dough is formed.
2. divide dough in half. place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a 12-inch log, about 2 inches in diameter. wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
3. slice each log into disks, 1/3 inch thick. place on parchment or foil-lind baking sheets 2 inches apart.
4. bake until edges are just brown (about 12 minutes). let cool on sheets.
