caerwyn: (Teatime - Hopper)

I'm blearily clinging to a cup of PG Tips, but before the potential craziness of the day takes hold I want to wish all the Tea-Partyers the most wonderful and delicious of days!

Here's a recipe from:

Naughton, A. (2002). Tea & Sympathy: The life of an English teashop in New York. New York: Putnam.


Tea & Sympathy Scones
Makes 12 scones

2 c sifted all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
2 T sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/3 c heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375
Sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add the heavy cream and mix gently. Do not overmix. If the mixture is very sloppy, add a little flour.

By hand, spread out the dough on a floured surface to 1” thickness.

Cut out the scones with a 2” cookie cutter and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.

These are truly among the most tender and delicious scones I've ever tasted. Truly. Sometimes the most simple recipes are the best! You have to eat them the first day, or, say, the first hour, but really, that won't be a problem. Slather with jam and or clotted cream.

And don't forget -- visit our delightful and gracious hostess [livejournal.com profile] elspethsheir for all the day's goodies and treats and fun!
