Tea Talk

May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire. Irish Blessing

I'm having...Good Earth Original tea, warm and sweet and spicy.

My teacup is...another of my teapot/tea cup sets. This was a birthday gift from my daughter Marianne.

I'm feeling...a bit tired. Wish I could crawl back under the covers and go back to sleep but the day has begun and I must begin with it.

On my mind...finishing my Bible Study responses. This year's study of Exodus is nearly over and I have learned much.

As I was working on "the cookbook" I found this recipe that was given me many years ago by a patient who would deliver these cookies to the office for us. One day she gave us all the recipe.
Deluxe Sugar Cookies.

1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Mix thoroughly margarine, confectioner's sugar, egg and vanilla. Blend in flour, soda, and cream of tartar. Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes or just drop cookies onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake 7-8 minutes or until lightly brown on the edge.

Wishing all a grand and glorious day!

Thanks be to God!

Now won't you join me and visit Ruth at Celebrate Friendship is hosting Tea Talk at her house? Share a cup of tea with us.
