English Tea Pastries

30 Min

It's tea time! Don't you just love the British tradition of having tea and cakes every afternoon? How 'bout making these easy pastries for your own tea time?

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package refrigerator crescent rolls (8 rolls per package)
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry or raspberry fruit preserves or jam
  • 1 tablespoon chopped blanched almonds
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Separate crescent rolls into individual triangles. Cut each triangle in half, making 16 triangles. Put 1/2 teaspoon preserves in the middle of each triangle.
  3. From the top points of the triangles, roll up each piece of dough and place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with butter and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  4. Bake 20 minutes, until golden. When cool, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve.

Makes 16 pastries.


These are quick throw-together treats that are perfect for dunking in tea and coffee, too. And remember, make as many as you need by using more packages of crescent rolls (and everything else, too!).

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

When you get a craving for fresh baked cookies, you have to do what you have to do. Luckily, here in the Test Kitchen, we can make cookies any time we want. Our go-to are these Oatmeal Cranberry cookies. Can you blame us? These sweet oats and tart cranberries are always a treat when washed down with ice cold milk. We wish you could smell the scent of cinnamon in the Test Kitchen, but making them in your home is just as tasty.
