Time for Tea & Treats

A spring tea party is a perfect excuse to reconnect with friends after the long winter. Round up your grandmother’s heirloom doilies, platters and teacups, don your fanciest hat, and indulge in a spread fit for a queen. We’ve handpicked our favorite Haggen pastries and treats to pair with warm herbal sips at the prettiest part of the season.

Carrot Cake

Springtime just isn’t complete without a slice of fresh-baked carrot cake. Our carrot cake is chock full of shredded carrots, raisins and nuts, baked fresh and frosted with a rich cream cheese icing.

Chuckanut Cheesecake

Nothing beats a bite of velvety cheesecake made with ingredients from the Northwest. Dress up one of our Chuckanut Cheesecakes with edible flowers and candied lemon slices to really impress your tea party guests.

Candied Lemon Slices

1 large lemon
1 cup sugar

Slice lemon into approximately 12 thin, even slices. Discard ends and seeds.

Bring a medium saucepan of water to boil then remove from heat. Add lemon slices and stir until softened (about 1 minute). Drain and immediately place lemon slices into a bath of ice water.

Bring sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil in skillet until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to medium low and add lemon slices in one layer. Simmer, do not boil, until rinds are translucent (about 1 hour).

Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet until cool.
