Downton Abbey Tea Party Cookies

Downton Abbey series 3 begins tonight in the UK. For those of us in the US, the wait is long—we won't be seeing it on PBS before January 6, 2013! The agony!

I love the costuming on the show, especially the hats, and when I ran into these beauties, I knew they were crying out to become cookies. They're from vintage trading cards from the 19-teens to the 1920s, exactly the era of Downton Abbey.

This cookie looks exactly like Lady Edith, to me. I wish the costumers showed her some mercy and gave her something fabulous to wear!

For the cookies, I used the middle cutter (2"x3" rectangle) from the Ateco 3-Piece Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set available through Amazon. I piped the border in white with a #16 star tip.

I will definitely make some for a premiere party for the show!

The Downton Abbey-esque wafer papers are available for purchase here.

    Anger is the most difficult and hard emotion to handle thus it is very manageable
    As a person it is normal so do not be hesitant.
