    Karen thank you so much for posting both my entries, being my first ever Tea Time Treats Round Up, I got a little entry crazy and entered a baby cake instead of a cookie. You are most kind to overlook my goof. All the entries look so good, I fully intend to look at each one with great anticipation.

  2. says

    Thank you so much for doing this huge amount of work! What a wonderful variety of deliciouness – off to share on my Facebook page – thanks again, Patricia :)

  3. says

    Excellent round up Karen. I LOVE cookies – more than cake so this round up is a virtual heaven for me :) I’m sure I’ll be making a lot of these delicious treats for myself :)

  4. says

    Thanks for the lovely introduction, Karen! I have checked out most of the entries and, as a result, my to-bake list got much longer 😉 Oh, I posted my version of your strawberry yoghurt cupcakes yesterday. They’re sooo good!

  5. says

    What a round-up! Such a magnificent collection of cookies, lovingly described by yourself Karen! I love the variety of entries and all the tres and pictures. I’m just tempted to crack open the biscuit tin now rather than make a proper supper! Xx

  6. says

    Oh Karen, this is too much, I want to dash off to the kitchen right now and make every single one of these. Actually scratch that, I think I’d better dash up to your tea time table instead and stuff myself silly. Thanks for another great round-up.
