The Cream Tea

Our Diamond Jubilee cream tea was quite a success! I don’t know how authentically British it was (probably not) but it was fun, and the children had a blast.


Here’s what I served, (in addition to a last-minute addition of dried apricots):

Shortbread cookies

Chocolate chip scones with Devonshire cream (by far the most popular menu item!)

Cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on cocktail rye bread

Red currant jelly sandwiches…diamond shaped, no less!

And, of course, tea, (cinnamon flavored), with cream and sugar!

And we get to do the whole thing again in just over a month during the Olympics!
