Review This Recipe
Have your tea and eat it too!
This recipe is easy to put together and a good way to use up that bruised apple that no one wants to eat. The tea adds a nice brown color that makes these even more appetizing. They smell great while baking, so they would be great to pop in the oven just before your guests arrive for tea and gossip.
