In the process of making "Thanksgiving" sandwiches...bread, cream cheese, stuffing, turkey, cranberry sauce, another bread, and skewered to hold together:

Here is the savory plate with the sandwiches. To the right of the Thanksgiving sandwiches are cheese crispies...puff pastry topped with an egg-cheese mix and baked. We were disappointed because they weren't crisp enough. Next were little rye bread rounds topped with Brie, apple slice and tiny dab of onion jam. Lastly, frico cups filled with baby greens and a savory citrus salad. They didnt turn out as well as expected- nice idea but too large for tea:

This was the sweets tray. Top tier is strawberry brown butter bettys (recipe to follow) and German chocolate cake truffles (milk chocolate dipped). Second tier includes mango tartlets (recipe to follow). Bottom tier includes an icebox cookie which was good, but too soft because they were made the day ahead:

And this was the Easy Caramel Cake from Americas Test Kitchen, which was a real winner. It is decorated with apple roses as well as real ones (recipe to follow):

And, of course, scones with clotted cream and citrus curd.


Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
