Oh, how I love the little bee that brings me nectar for my tea!
This is the time of year I start longing for a nice hot cup of tea. Of course, that means I will need some honey to sweeten the brew. Fortunately, the bees have been busy and productive (as always) so my desires will not go unfulfilled. Earl Grey, Wild Orange, Country Peach and Spicy Cinnamon Apple all taste better with a drizzle of liquid gold. Hail to the honey bee!
To make these fragrant ornaments I mixed 1 Cup of Cinnamon, 3/4 cup of Applesauce, 2 TBLS. glue and several drops of spicy essential oil to increase the fragrance factor. The dough should be about the same texture as pie crust dough. I rolled it out on a sheet of wax paper, then cut out my shapes with a cookie cutter. I used a plastic straw to poke the hole. Next, I stamped in the initials of the bride and groom whose wedding gift bags these were going into. What a sweet addition to a fall-themed wedding!
