In honor of the recent release of the highly anticipated Downton Abbey movie, World Market has launched a collection of fine teas, elegant preserves, luxury treats and delicious desserts—all with the coveted Downton Abbey label.

Scroll through the slideshow to see the high tea-inspired line that will have you saying, “May I have some more, please” in a British accent.

For a truly scrumptious way to use some of the tasty gourmet products, try this easy recipe from Holly Nilsson of spendwithpennies:

Downton Abbey Easy Cheesecake Bites

Prep Time: 20 min.

Cook Time: 20 min.

Total Time: 40 min.

Servings: 12


4 Downton Abbey Viennese Whirls

1 tbsp. butter, melted

16 oz. cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

2 tbsp. honey

1 tsp. lemon juice

½ tsp. vanilla extract

4 tsp. Downton Abbey Orange Marmalade

4 tsp. Downton Abbey Blackcurrant Jam

4 tsp. Downton Abbey Lemon Curd


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with 12 foil liners.

2. Combine crushed Viennese Whirls and butter, then press into liners. Pressing the crust firmly helps hold it together once baked.

3. Beat cream cheese in a medium bowl until fluffy. Add honey, lemon, eggs and extract. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.

4. Divide cream cheese over each cookie crust. Add one teaspoon of Downton Abbey Orange Marmalade to top of 4 of the cheesecakes. Repeat with jelly and lemon curd.

5. Using a toothpick, slightly swirl the jelly/marmalade/lemon curd.

6. Bake 20-22 minutes or until set. Remove from oven, cool completely and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Here’s a fun video showing how to make the recipe:


In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Friends television series, Pottery Barn has created a collection of home accents that will make fans smile. One of the most popular TV shows of all time, Friends ran from 1994-2004 on NBC with an ensemble cast starring Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.

The new Friends + Pottery Barn collection includes mugs, pillows, tea towels, a doormat, art prints and even a reproduction of the apothecary table that was the subject of one of the episodes (complete with drawers especially designed to hold CDs).

All the items are limiited editions, so unlike the love for this piece of pop culture history, they won’t be around for long.
