Easter Tea '14

Easter Tea: The Charm of Home

It is almost Easter, so I have been creating some Easter treats for the occasion.  Join me while I have tea and tell you what I have made.

Easter Tea: The Charm of Home
The sugar cookies are made with a cookie mold from  Wholeport.com.  The mold is a mooncake mold but, it really makes cute pressed cookies too.  This little cookie mold is a chick; at the moment I can't find it on their website, but there are many other molds to choose from.  Here is the recipe I used to make the cookies here.  The chocolate cross is a silicone mold also from Wholeport.com.  I will share how easy it is to make the chocolate crosses tomorrow.

Easter Tea: The Charm of Home
I also received some little gift bags from Wholeport.com.  I tucked the cookies and the crosses into the bags, perfect for Easter treats.

Easter Tea: The Charm of Home
The mug and plate I am using for tea today is made by Pfaltzgraff and the pattern is Weave.  I enjoyed creating these special Easter treats.  My youngest actually helped make these chick pressed cookies.  He did a really good job!  They came out better than the ones I made.
What do you like to make for the Easter season at your house?

Normally we have a huge Easter egg hunt and I make a ton of fun Easter treats. But the kids are getting old and we're moving so there will be no hunt this
year:( I always loved making cute cupcakes for the brunch table, different ones each year. Also chocolate covered strawberries and lemon tarts. Your cookies look fabulous, and I love the china pattern. Reminds me of some Irish china I have.xoKathleen

Hi Sherry,
Your chick cookies are so cute and the crosses are very pretty. Moulds do such a good job.
I would love to find some daffodils for next week's tea too. They're scarce around here right now. For years, I always made a layered dessert, a black forest cake, or a marshmallow dessert for Easter. Not sure what I'll make this year. Thanks for coming to tea and have a lovely week.

Hello Sherry,
I love your basket weave china! I think it is a fab texture. It looks really great with your chocolate crosses and the doilies. The chic cookies are sweet and look fab in the bag. The vignette is lovely.

Ces petits gâteaux sont tellement beaux qu'on voudrait les conserver comme une oeuvre d'art.
J'aime beaucoup vos photos.

I love quiet moments with a cup of tea and a special cookie. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
Have a beautiful week,

Those cookies are just exquisite!!I've not seen silicon molds for several years. I used to make cream cheese mints with them. I'll have to check out that website to see if they sell them, too. Happy Easter!!
