Pink Roses and Gold for Tea

Hello Tea Time Friends

Welcome to 

"Pink Roses and Gold for Tea!"

I love  china with rich gold trim and pretty pink roses. 

These are a few of my favourite pieces in my collection ....

Help yourself to one of my  favourite oatmeal cookies with your tea. 

Oatmeal Cookies (My Favourite)

About 3 dozen 2 inch cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1/2 cup butter
Add and cream well:
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Combine and beat until smooth:
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon milk
Sift together and add to the above ingredients:
1 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon double acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

When beaten smooth, add:

1 cup uncooked quick rolled oats
(For a different flavour add 3/4 cups of chocolate chips or
1 cup flaked coconut)

Beat the mixture well.  Drop cookies 2 inches apart on a well-greased cookie sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown.  

My thoughts and prayers  are with our friends in Paris today.

Thank you for your visit!

See you next week!
