For December, I considered making things like figgy pudding or some other traditional Victorian dessert. Really what it came down to was time and palates. I made these fantastic gingerbread bites. They’re super easy (especially if you buy the premade gingerbread cookie mix, which I did) and they turned out so delicious. This recipe also made almost 50 bites so it was plenty for book club and for some other events that week. I served one of my favorite teas along with it, White Christmas from Stash teas.
Steepers were treated with a small package of “Novel Teas” (get it?!) and a candy cane. The novel teas said, “Read ’em and steep!” on the packages! They’ve stolen my phrase!
