Feature Friday – ButterBlossoms

Fair warning: If you are hungry right now, I apologize. If you aren't, then I still apologize because you will be shortly...

orange pumpkin tea cookies with sprinklesToday's Feature Friday had my mouth watering while I was writing it up. Each picture I linked made my stomach growl a little more impatiently. Even the name of the shop will tempt you. Ready? Okay, you asked for it. ButterBlossoms. Oh yes, ButterBlossoms.
As September creeps in and the weather starts transitioning into its cooler wardrobe, I start to feel all snuggly. My natural demeanor is one of semi-hibernation. I love sinking into a plush chair with my oversized sweater down to my knees, throw open a book and read til the afternoon light fades. The only thing that makes a scene like this better is a sweet treat to nibble slowly in between sips of tea and a lazy page turn.
heart shaped tea cookies with pink sprinklesButterBlossoms seems to have realized that people like me cannot say no to a decadent shortbread and that a daily dose of butter can make the world a happier place. 
selection of cookies that arrive monthly from ButterBlossomLocated in Charleston, South Carolina (teasingly close to me!), ButterBlossoms was created by a mother/daughter team. Shell and Emily put real love and effort into each batch (they don't even use electric mixers!!). Each tasty morsel is produced, packaged, and shipped the same day and arrives on your doorstep ready to grace your tea tray. 
They even have a "Cookie of the Month Club"! I just swooned a little...
