Christmas tea a few years ago, at our small-town bank during a Holiday party, and I was willing to do anything for the recipe. It’s that good. Turns out, it’s from a hometown cookbook that’s just about as old as the town itself. So, if you’re  looking for an autumn tea or Christmas tea recipe, you’ve found it. Look no further. Close all those other recipes you’ve got open, cause this is the one you want to go with.

Christmas Tea Recipe Ingredients:

2 Cinnamon sticks
2 TBSP WHOLE cloves
3 Cups sugar (Haven’t made it with Splenda, but I’m sure you could!)
1 qt. boiling water
1 qt. strong tea (REALLY REALLY STRONG)
Juice of 3 lemons (Or lemon juice)
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup orange juice
3 quarts boiling water (You can sub some of this for apple cider!)

Directions:

Bring 1 qt water (or cider) to a boil, add cinnamon sticks, cloves, and sugar.  Boil for 5 minutes, then strain out spices.   Add tea and remaining ingredients.  Serve hot or cold!

After making this a few times, it’s always best the next day. It’s great fresh, of course, but it’s even better after sitting overnight in the fridge. You can drink this hot or cold. The cinnamon and cloves mesh so well with the tea flavor — and the citrus notes are just the perfect finish. I promise you, if you make this, you will be asked for this Christmas tea recipe, if not crowned the king or queen of the party!

Eggnog Cookies Recipe

Eggnog Cookies

Eggnog Logs are very pretty and very delicious but also very simple and easy to make. This is definitely an eggnog cookies recipe that the kids with love to help you bake. My kids love to roll the dough into ropes and they love cutting the dough rope into logs. Seems like young ones always want to chop and cut in the kitchen but that isn’t always an easy thing to accommodate for the tiny tots. You can fulfill their desire and keep them safe too by letting them cut the dough rope into logs with a butter knife or plastic knife. It is just like playing with play dough but they get to eat yummy cookies when they are done. Helping make cookies is also great for fine motor development and you can sneak in a little math and science without any one even noticing. [Read more…]
