When we moved to Texas, back in 1986, I bought my first pair of boots. I thought for today's tea, I'd fill them with some pretty flowers (a glass filled with water is down in the boot).
How about some Cowboy Coffeecake and a cup of Eggnogg'n tea?
This recipe is one I've been making for over 40 years and comes from my BHG cookbook. Another name for this is Sugar 'n Spice Coffeecake, depending on what edition the recipe comes from. It's a really good recipe, which makes two cakes. The whole recipe can be done by hand, which is another plus. I hope you try it and keep one and give one away. You'll make someone happy!!
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 t. salt
2/3 cup shortening
Mix until crumbly (I use a pastry blender). Reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture and set aside.
To remaining crumbs, add and mix thoroughly:
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
Add 1 cup sour milk (put 1 T. white vinegar or lemon juice in measuring cup and fill the rest up with milk) and 2 beaten eggs. Mix well.
Pour into 2 greased 8 x 8 x 2-inch pans; sprinkle with the reserved crumbs. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
Do you have any old boots in your closet?
