Interesting I was expecting a variation of the amish friendhip bread my granma use to make. I'm leery of the taste combos on some of your recipes but would be sure to share with others who are a bit more adventurious in the sweets department.

Yum, yum, yum I'm trying the tea mixes this weekend as I'm having some people over for our 'crafting-get-together'. (all we do is work really hard on our 'have to finish by Christmas' projects and eat great stuff, and this weekend is my turn to host)

Thank you for sharing

hope you're well

regards Zsuzsy

Oh, those teas look like the perfect idea for little "cooks". The making of a grand "tea party".

mimind, I have recipes the Amish friendship cookies using the starter dough. I almost included them in but decided to keep them as regular recipes. I would have had some of the same reservations about the blends of flavors but I had already tried and liked them. Thanks for stopping by.

Zsuzsy, the teas are definately different. I'm sure they will be a hit. Have fun at your 'crafting-get-together', wish you were close enough for me to go. I love that kind of thing.

Enjoy!

oliversmum, thank you for your lovely comments. I wanted to do a hub about friendship tea and then thought, "What's friendship tea without friendship cookies?"
