Tea on Tuesday
Here is a peek inside the British Anthropologie- check out the TEA BAG CURTAIN!!!!! It looks like used tea bags to me!!!!
Today's tea is a repeat- PG Tips, in the triangle bag- love it!!!
Along with that tea, are the lemon cookies and brownies that my daughter made. The brownies were from a Paula Deen recipe - yummy with a middle layer of 2 large Hershey bars!!!
The lemon cookies were from a Giada DeLaurentis recipe- we have been eating them for days!!! The lemon cookie recipe makes quite a few- I'm gonna share!!!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
1 small container ricotta
1 lemon's zest
1 stick butter
2 C sugar
3 C flour
1 tspn salt
1 tspn baking powder
Mix all ingredients, then add the flour.
Use melon baller or ice cream scoop, scoop out balls of dough and place on cookie sheet.Bake for 10-15 min- edges should be slightly brown.
3 Tbspns lemon juice (or juice of 1 whole lemon)
1 1/2-2 C powdered sugar
lemon zest from 1 lemon
Mix together, let thicken.
When cookies have cooled some, spread on the glaze. Let sit for an hour or so -( if you can stand to wait that long!!!) for the glaze to set.
The brownie recipe is easy- just make up a box mix according to the directions on the box. Spread half the brownies in the pan. Take two large Hershey bars, put them on top of the mix. Spread the remaining brownie mix over the top, and bake according to box directions!!!
