Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Halloween Week Tea

I always enjoy teas during Halloween Week
For I'm often in the kitchen
baking treats for the oldest Grand girl --
the youngest, after all, is still on mother's milk
Next year!

In the breakfast room, of course
With the Spode blue Italian
and a pottery jack o lantern
That I rescued from the basement
A souvenir from Silver Dollar City long ago

And the tea treat is cookies
Cutout cookies
Some frosted and some sugared

My favorite cut out cookie recipe
It makes just the best cookies!
