Tea Time Treats with Paper Sweeties

Continuing today with the new stamp release from Paper Sweeties.   Look at that darling little teapot and the cute cup and saucer stamped in each polka dot.  I just love these images!

I decided my tea party needed a little treat of tea bag shaped cookies.  I started looking for a shortbread recipe that I thought would work.  My go-to cookbook is our vintage Fanny Farmer.  The first thing I noticed was that the recipe recommended WASHING your butter.  What!!???  

Fanny even explains how to hold the butter and wring it under running water.  I think butter must have come very differently from how we get it now!  Needless to say, I did NOT wash the butter, and luckily everything turned out okay.   This is a very tasty shortbread - especially dipped in chocolate!  

All of the new stamps will be available tomorrow at Paper Sweeties.  I used Join Me for Tea and I'm Having a Tea Party on my tea time treat bag.

Lots of excitement going on:
