Little tea time cookies

I ran  across some adorable cookie cutters the other day, and couldn't wait to try them out.  It was a  European set that had a cut out just the right size to hook on the side of a cup or glass.  Like I said, ADORABLE.  Now admittedly, I am much more of a coffee drinker and when I do have tea it is generally something for good health like tulsi or a medicinal herbal blend.  I don't drink them for pleasure because most of them taste  like boiled athletic socks.

  I suffer for my health.

BUT, I found a tea that looked tasty

as well as a spiffy new apple green tea kettle.

I baked my tiny cookies, made some tea with a splash of milk and stevia (still on the sugar fast), gathered some rose hips and a tiny fig,  and perched the little cookie charmers on the rim of the tea cups.  Then I  stood back to admire the cute factor.

Darn cute I say.  Unfortunately, I didn't eat the cookies - once again, the stinkin no sugar thing.  Sigh.  They went to Mr. Enchanted and the Enchanted offspring.

It WAS a lovely tea, however, and didn't taste one bit like boiled socks.Pin It

  1. I popped over here fully intending to see turkey cookies! (I saw where you posted at Sweetology). These cookies are WAY UP THERE on the cute scale!! I just saw some similar to these on another blog and loved them! It's too bad that you can't try one!!! That tea sounds really good too!! Now I've got to make these! I just have to find the cookie cutter! Cute post!! xo Jina

  2. OOOOOOOOOOH MYYYY Lisa!! I am in LOVE with these little dainty delights. I was looking at this with Sophia and we both gasped and squealed in excitement. These are more than fantastic. BTW thanks for the nice heartfelt comment on my cupcakes today, I worked so hard on these and they were a true labor of love so when others like them too, it means even more. :)

  3. Those are the sweetest little cookies, what a great idea someone had.
    Glad you enjoyed the chai.

  4. The little cookies are darling and I love vanilla chai with lots of milk and a little sugar. I keep forgetting to check out the stevia when I go to the store. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Oh my goodness, those are the cutest tea huggers I've ever seen!! I'm glad you were able to at least enjoy a cup of chai tea. I'm visiting from Tea Party Tuesday.

  6. I wish we had that vanilla chai here...I can only imagine how good it was with the cookies!

  7. Lisa, your teacups are lovely! I do love transferware! The little cookies are almost too cute to nibble. Loving your apple green kettle. My favourite tea is chai although I have never tried vanilla chai. Thank you so much for sharing with us today and have a delightful day.
