Berry Tea Cakes Recipe
It’s a lovely tradition in our family to bake some late-spring-early-summer desserts with berries inside. My grandmas on both sides of the family were especially crafty when it came to combining delicious aromas of the berries in their own orchards. These Berry Tea Cakes bites are a perfect example from my childhood when we would gather around the table to knead the dough and make our own baking masterpieces while a grandma was making a real thing. I so much love to go back the memory lane when it comes to baking in my grandmas’ kitchens. I was fortunate to know both of them well and love them so much.
Have some time together in your kitchen, with your kids, with your friends whom you love and treasure. Postponing only would add anxiety to the feeling unfulfilled.
