I have a new friend who loves tea, tea sandwiches and tea parties and we've been getting to know each other over tea-for-two. We each make some favorite recipes and while away the afternoon talking and eating sandwiches, scones and sweets.
I have really enjoyed our time together and love the fact that it gives me an occasion to try out some new things. For example, I have had a really neat "cookie spoon mold" for over a year now and I've never used it! It is a white bake-able plastic that you fill with cookie dough and bake. Each tray makes 4 spoons at a time. Aren't they cute?! I used the shortbread-like recipe that came with the mold to ensure that the spoons were sturdy enough to place on a saucer and not break. Perfection! And they are delicious too.
Want to make your own cookie spoons? My suggestion is to buy two molds, so that you can have 8 cookie spoons baking in the oven at once. And at around $2 a mold, a set can fit in most budgets. Have fun!
