Winter Tea Party
Transform your kitchen table into a winter wonderland with a cookie and cocoa party that looks freshly dusted with snow. Set the table in a snowy style by choosing a cream or silver tablecloth (paper and plastic ones can be found in the anniversary section of party stores). Using white napkins and plates will add a little pop against the tablecloth. Sprinkle the tabletop with snowflake confetti and you’re done with decorations.
Also known as Russian Teacakes, many cultures have a similar version of this cookie because the combination of butter, powdered sugar and almond can’t be beat!
What You Need:
- 3/4 cups unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar, plus extra for rolling
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup finely ground blanched almonds
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
