A Morning Tea Platter for Sharing

I tend to get inordinately (and arguably illogically) fond of different pieces of cooking equipment, mixing bowls, rolling pins and platters.

The white platter shown here is a current favourite for a weekly morning tea, filled each time with something hopefully tasty, slightly decadent and most importantly delicious to share with friends.

Old fashioned favourites are my preference – last week little jelly cakes, their outer coating made tastier by the addition of a dash of homemade raspberry cordial syrup.

This morning – fruit tartlets with four different fillings: apple, morello cherry, apricot or greengage. To accompany them, a warm egg custard of dolloping consistency, topped with a sprinkling of nutmeg.

Looking for suggestions for filling the white platter for next week’s morning tea …….

    The slice with base, raspberry jam and topping of desiccated coconut mixed with beaten egg. Midget rock cakes were a fvourite in my family. Mushroom tarts made by mum for special occasions. Very short pastry, difficult to roll, liltle mushroom stalks . Jam in tart and an icing made of whipped butter and icing sugar. Beaten for ages in days before Kitchen aid and Kenwood.
