To celebrate, sister bluebirdcage is throwing an English style tea party in her back garden…in Iowa. None the less, I plan to attend via video messaging (bless the internet!) and have baked sugar cookies to enjoy from this side of the pond.
1: Cut out several cookies using a circular cookie cutter
2: Using a sharp knife, split the circle into two pieces
3: Gently press the rounded ends of the split cookie together, so that they stick to each other once again
4: Use a sharp knife to cut away 3/4 of the bottom portion of the cookie - the small piece remaining will form the base of the teacup.
5: To make the handle, roll a small piece of dough until it is long and thin, then shape it into whatever handle style you'd like.
6: Gently press the handle into place - voila, you've got yourself an edible teacup!
