12 Days of Christmas, Day 8: [Recipe] Social Tea Squares

Where have these squares been all my life?!?

Thank goodness these have come along. I am so very happy we’ve found each other!

These social tea squares are one of those squares people will be asking for the recipe for, believe me.

Social tea squares, although not difficult to make, do take a bit of extra time, but they are so so worth the effort. My goodness they’re good. I saved this recipe to post today because it’s my favourite recipe of the 12 Days of Christmas this year and today’s my birthday. I love all of my favourite things on my birthday.

The recipe for these squares comes to me from my friend Alice. I’ve known Alice over three years now – we met in a group for moms having babies in the same month. Alice is not only a fantastic mom, but a lovely person, funny, and a very talented baker. She makes gorgeous cakes and looks beautiful doing it. Alice, I’m so happy to call you my friend and I hope we have many more years of sharing memories and recipes.

[Recipe] Social Tea Squares

2 large eggs
3⁄4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups mini marshmallows
1⁄2 package social tea cookies (1 sleeve), crushed

Mix eggs, butter and sugar in the top of a double boiler.

While your mixture is cooking, crush the social tea cookies into crumbs. It’s great to have a helper for this part.

Cook the mixture in the double boiler for 25 minutes, stirring constantly until thick and creamy.

Cool the mixture to room temperature.

Add marshmallows and crumbs.

Mix well and press into a buttered 9″x9″ pan.

Cut into squares and store them in the refrigerator.
