The holidays are in full swing, have you started your baking yet? I love trying new cookie recipes every year, but having some of the family favorites around as well. I usually go to two cookie exchanges, so we never have a shortage of cookies around here!
Do you have favorites that you make every year? Do you ever add new cookies to the rotation? I first made this chocolate chip shortbread years ago, from the same book as these Heath Toffee Bars. This year I am excited to bring them back.
The one thing about this time of year is everyone is crazy busy. Life is busy pretty much every day, but you add the holidays, parties, family, cookie exchanges, and everything else into the mix, and things are just insane! My go to every day to make things a little more calm? A cup of hot tea every afternoon. On a cold day it takes the chill off and just warms you up. It is what I need every day to take a few minutes, and make the rest of the day go smoothly.
I grew up with tea as a major part of my family. My dad’s side of the family is from England, so hot tea was always around since I was a little girl. To this day, I drink hot tea pretty much daily. And I drink ice tea by the pitcher. Doesn’t matter if it hot or cold out, I will have ice tea in the pitcher and drink it all day long.
Kroger grocery stores now carry Pure Leaf NEW loose tea and bagged teas. Around 3pm every day, I heat up my kettle of water. Yes I have an electric kettle, and it is amazing for making a quick cup of tea. The new teas are available in Black Vanilla and Green Mint Tea. Which flavor are you going to try first? Both pair well with chocolate chip shortbread, because what is tea time without treats!
Pure Leaf believes the best things in life are real, that’s why all Pure Leaf teas are simply made from real tea leaves, picked at their freshest and purposefully crafted to deliver a genuine tea experience. So head to your local Kroger store and pick up some of these new teas today. Make tea time a ritual in your day, and you will thank me!
