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
2 eggs
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!!!

  1. gorgeous treats (those brownies sound SO dangerous and delicious!!!) to go with your Tips tea!

  2. the lemon cookies are addicting. i made them several months back and couldn't get enough of them. only Paula Deen would think of putting chocolate bars between layers of dough...they do sound yummy! I'm not familiar with the triangle bag. It bears looking up.

    O and I can't think of any finer company to be in. I do love my new spoon.

    I read about the less stressful life this morning...I subbed to the newsletter after following your link last week. Good stuff.

  3. That sounds so yummy.
    Thanks for the recipes! :)

  6. that tea bag curtain is pretty gross! and just because it's anthropologie it'll be somebodies favorite thing! and hey - what's up with that Giada chick - making cookies and then probably NEVER eating them!
