Mother didn't bake a lot of cookies
Peanut butter ones
and cutout sugar cookies for holidays.
Most of the cookies I enjoyed as a child were bought
But not Oreos (or Hydrox) but rather bakery cookies.
Wolferman's was one of her stops
(and I adored their Hermits (and I have that recipe)
As was the Cake Box
But it was always a red letter day when we came home from school
in the kitchen!
Andre's had the best cookies
And mostly, when that box was in the kitchen, it usually meant that Mother had company coming
For they were "company" cookies and not family cookies.
Andre's (unlike Wolferman's or Cake Box) is still in business
And it is a favorite stop of mine!
Last week friend Linda and I had lunch there
And after lunch there is always a stop at the pastry counter
To bring home some tea treats
(all almond cookies)
And they made a great tea
Which I kindly shared with Husband Jim!
(I'm nice like that "sometimes"!)
A pewter vase with florist flowers,
A Spode blue and white teapot
And Wheildon Ware tea plate, creamer and cups and saucers.
An estate sale find
A lacy tablecloth
Cookies and tea
Life is good!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my Andre's tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.
