Tea for Two

E and I threw a just for fun, just for two tea party the other day. I feel very lucky to have a husband who is happy to indulge silliness.

Note the extended pinkie finger. An important point of etiquette.

These tarts look fancy but are a cinch to make. Pastry dough rolled out & put into mini muffin tins (poke the bottoms with the tines of a fork to keep them from getting too puffy) at 350 for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool a bit and then spoon in a bit of jam, whatever you have on hand will be scrumptious. Next time, I'm planning to roll mine out thinner though. These oatmeal raisin cookies are the best I've ever had bar none. Cream cheese, parsley & cucumber crustless sandwiches were another obvious touch.

Have you ever made an ordinary day special with a few fancy flourishes? I'd love to hear about it!
