Tea Time Treats

Welcome to May’s Challenge for Tea Time Treats! After a HUGE and very successful April with Kate, who was the Fairy Cake and Cup Cake queen, we decided to go crisp and buttery for May, and so the theme this month is:

Biscuits and Cookies

Posh Jam Biscuits! Jammie Daisy Dodgers (Biscuits/Cookies) Recipe

So, when is a biscuit a cookie? Well, when it’s not a scone! Biscuits are scones in the USA and Cookies are biscuits in the UK……but NOT to worry, we want any biscuit or cookie that you want to share…….from Rich Tea Biscuits to Jammie Dodgers, or Melting Moments to Coffee Kisses, anything that is baked and is sort of hard and crispy-ish, is prefect for Tea Time Treats and the May challenge! That also includes:

tuiles  cigarillos, brandy snaps, oatcakes, digestives, galettes, shortbread,  rocky road, Bourbons, cream crackers, chocolate crispies, bar cookies or biscuits, sweet OR savoury…….

it’s all perfect for the tea time table. The instructions to enter are below, and all that remains for me to say is have FUN and Let’s Bake! Karen

    Yay, this is going to be an awesome challenge – can’t wait to see all the delicious entries! This is going to sound silly but cookies sound more playful and cutesy, whilst biscuits sound very grown up. Either way though, life will be so dull without them 😀

    I remember making these at school (and sharing them out on the school bus on the way home) – they never looked THIS good though, I must give them another try
