Tea Rings

TAHLEQUAH — There are still two chances to buy tea rings from the Tahlequah school choirs on Monday and Dec. 10. They will be sold from 5-8 p.m. at Greenwood Elementary for $8.

If for whatever reason those chances are missed, the elements to create a tea ring are not hard to find.

Of Swedish origin, a tea ring is composed of sweet cinnamon rolls that are not completely separated prior to baking. The spirals are turned outward, creating a ring, allowing the filling to caramelize, and the Tahlequah choirs place butter on the rolls. Once baked, the choirs drizzle the rings with a vanilla confectioner’s glaze and place cherries and pecans on top.

Other popular tea ring topping options are slivered almonds, raisins and candied fruits.
