My Cookie Swap Dream Team

Today was the Saint Lawrence School's 100th Anniversary Tea. It was such a nice event. There was a lot of hard work that went into the event. The decorations and the food were all wonderful. Every person had a different tea cup and no 2 teapots were alike. The tables were decorated with teacups filled with flowers and each place had a wrapped napkin with silverware and a honey stick. There was a lot of attention to detail.

Now back to the food. There were assorted Tea Sandwiches. Chicken Salad, Tuna Salad,. My two favorites were the cucumber and I think it was dill. And then there was an apple and cheddar. Loved those two! Scones with homemade jam, and clotted cream. First time tasting clotted cream and I liked it!

Now let me just say that I am a cookie snob. My sister's cookies are the best. I worked with this guy whose sister made the absolute best chocolate chip cookies. Ian, if you are out there please stop by SFA someday with some of those cookies. Just call to make sure I am not working from home that day! I am just very picky about cookies. That being said if I could have a dream team for a cookie swap every person that made cookies for this tea would be invited. Lemon Bars, Russian Tea Cakes, a chocolate cookie covered with sugar, a shortbread that was to die for and it was made with an antique press. Pizzella, brownies, and much more. There was even a tray of sugar-free treats.
