Over the past year or so, my sister, Laura, has graced our family with a barrage of delicious treats. She got a KitchenAid Electric Mixer for Christmas, an investment which is paying off quite scrumptiously. Of the many dinners and desserts Laura makes, one of her staples is Grandma McWeeney’s Jam Cookies. These cookies have shown up at countless family parties over my lifetime and they never get old. I have been aching to shoot more food, and after taking Leela Cyd’s Skillshare class on food photography to sharpen my skills, I just can’t get enough of food styling. Having a cook and a photographer under one roof is proving to be useful and fun!
For a small tea party, these jam cookies are perfect bites of goodness. For something more substantial, and for a mix in flavor, Laura made Almond + Earl Grey Teacup Cakes from trEATs by April Carter, a wonderful find at our local Anthropologie. I hope this post inspires your next tea party!
