    Love it! Throwing a tea party for my oldest girl and these look perfect!

  2. These are delicious! However, notice recipe here in the blog is missing the salt from the ingredient list and milk in the glaze comepletely. Luckily the video posted to Facebook has the complete ingredients list.

    These looks so delicious! Can’t wait to try this recipe. ????

  4. I’d have to purchase a donut pan to make these. They look great!

  5. OH, thanks for FYI! I’m not on FB. How much salt? How much milk for glaze? Most likely not much for both ingredients. You can almost guess for the glaze. A quarter teaspoon for the salt? Thanks.

  6. You just break open the tea bag and dump it in? Interesting I didn’t know tea was edible?
