“Come for a tea party and bring your favorite dolly!” How many little girls will love to walk over in their mothers’ heels for a special little party under the mock orange bush. Instead of the usual cookies, why not surprise them with Raggedy Ann Salads? To drink? Why, tea of course, generously mixed with milk.
For each serving, place 1 peach half for body on salad plate. Arrange 4 small celery sticks for arms and legs around peach half. Use 1 large marshmallow for head, raisins for eyes, nose, shoes and buttons and small piece of maraschino cherry for mouth. Shred yellow cheese; arrange around marshmallow for hair. Add a skirt of leaf lettuce to complete the salad.
For dessert, Marguerites, tea party favorites with mothers and grandmothers, are just as delicious today!
Heat oven to 400°. Beat 2 egg whites until foamy. Beat in 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy. Fold 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 cup chopped nuts into meringue. Cover 23 soda crackers with meringue, carefully sealing to edges. Bake crackers on ungreased baking sheet 6 to 8 minutes or until meringue is light brown. 24 Marguerites.
