Colonial Soup-Servers (Sippits)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by luvinlif2k

Use Sippits as an alternative to spoons to make cream soups a filling and fun meal. This is our version which works well. For the best taste when using cooking spray, use butter-flavored or garlic-flavored cooking spray. Sippits are best when toasted well so they are crispy but not too dark.

I was in Williamsburg, VA a few weeks ago and talked with a young woman who greeted you outside one of the historic exhibits. She recommended eating at the Kings Arms Tavern. We enjoyed our meal at the tavern which was the peanut soup and the sippits. I would love to have the recipe for the soup as well. It was like taking a giant step back into history. The waiter explaned the sippits to me. It was a good memory especially when it is around food. Thanks,
