Hello Jan,
That's looking good. Very tasty cookies.
Cozy decorated. Very nice with that tea service and cozy with that table and chairs.

Greetings, Marco

I'd LOVE to join you for tea and scones. I think I prefer the sweet over savory today. Tomorrow I might prefer the savory.

Hi Jan :) I will have some tea with my scones please. :) Actually I've been discovering some lovely herbal chai blends of tea lately. I found a chocolate orange chai, organic from the company Four O'Clock. Oh it's like drinking dessert! :) Hope you're doing well!!

This looks very tasty...but also very expensive to make. 3 cups of almonds...I went to buy almond flour late last year to make a special treat for a friend of mine who is on the Keto diet...but, as I mentioned at the was far too I changed from that particular recipe to one that used coconut flour. The latter is cheaper.

I'll stick to wheat flour. I'm not allergic to anything (food-wise, that is)....touch wood...and hope the status quo remains.

Take care. :)
