I’m thankful for everyone who came to tea the other day; hope they enjoyed the afternoon as much as I did.  Here’s some of the treats I made. below- homemade graham crackers/crème cheese and sliced strawberries.  here’s the recipe from smitten kitchen  I love these graham crackers; easy to make especially when I mix the dough in the bread machine.

These little lemon tarts below  have a peppermint leaf for the garnish.  Crème cheese/condensed milk/ lemon juice and lemon zest.

I had another box of these little phylo cups (15 in pkg) and I filled them  with heavy whipped cream plus a little sugar; topped with blueberries.

    These would also be yummy if you added some fruit yogurt, fruit pie filling, or pudding on the bottom under the whipped cream. They would be like mini pies. I’ve done that with mini graham cracker crusts & they’re fun, yummy, and pretty.
