Tea for three


The problem with baking and blogging about it, for me is that I mostly bake in the evenings, when miss E. is asleep. The baking is good, but the light for making pictures is terrible. So most times my bakes don't make it to the blog.

Today was different; I slipped in a perfect baking session during miss E.'s naptime. And here is the result: a perfect tea for three after naptime.
There was a simple black tea and lemonade accompanied by some ginger bread and "fig and blue cheese savouries".

I'll show you my labour with love, and you can find the recipe for the gingerbread in my previous post, and the recipe for the fig and blue cheese savouries over here.


There are only a few ingredients: flour, butter, blue cheese, pepper, salt and fig preserves.


I cut the cookies with my favourite antique cookie cutter and I put in the dimples with the back of my honey spoon which provided to be the perfect tool. Sometimes things come together like they have always belonged that way. I love it when that happens.


I think these little little flowers are perfect for this early spring. The taste is a little salt and sweet, I'll definitely make them again.

  1. Hi Karen...I can relate to your comment about poor lighting in the evening. I still work in the city, and many of my projects are at night. It is not easy to get a good photograph. Your cookies look yummy!

    1. Hi Monica, nice to meet you! Just give the cookies a go, they are like sand/ butter cookies, so I don't think you can go wrong with them, as long as you don't burn them. I always have to remind myself to be in the kitchen the last 10 minutes of baking so that won't happen. Have a lovely wekend!
