Hello everyone. Happy September to you! Hope you all had a good holiday!. Its another sunny day so decided to have tea in the garden again this week. Many of my flowers are looking a bit tired but my Heliopsis (perennial sunflowers) are giving a late summer show.
I'm using my vintage yellow rose tablecloth I had for years. The unmarked teacup was only 49 cents, and I think matches the tablecloth pretty good! I found the unmarked teapot a few years ago at a thrift store. I just love the size and shape. Its filled with American Classic tea from the Charleston Tea Plantation. I made a cream puff dessert for today, perfect for a warm sunny day! Here's the recipe if you want to try it.
Boil together one stick oleo with one cup water. Take off stove. Add one cup flour and mix together. Add four eggs (one at a time) and beat in. Spread on greased cookie sheet. Bake 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
Filling: one large package instant vanilla pudding, 8 oz. package cream cheese softened, two and one half cups milk. Beat with mixer. Spread on top of cooled crust. Spread a small tub of Coolwhip on top. Squeeze Turtle Shell Chocolate syrup on top. Refrigerate.
Well, I'm going to sit awhile in the sun and browse through an old Victoria magazine. They are all keepers, I think I have most of the past issues!
Thank you for visiting me a have a great week!
I'll be joining the following parties this week: Teatime Tuesday, Tea in the Garden, A Return to Loveliness, Cottage Garden Party, and Show and Tell Friday.
