I’ve been a bit obsessed with tea lately.  It might be that I’m watching Downton Abbey again from the beginning since I saw the series finale a few months back.  It also might be that we’re in the process of moving and stopping for “tea” sounds like a peaceful time amidst the chaos.  So, what I’m really saying is that I’m fascinated by the British in the 20’s and I’m exhausted from working on our house and I need a break.

Soooo….. the best cookies to go with tea!!

If you’ve ever watched someone drink tea all fancy like, you know they enjoy a few treats as well.  So, today I’m sharing with you a Lemon Tea cookie recipe that is oh’ so good.
