 “The Tea Party

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guest in all-
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.

                                                          my cup of tea :)
 i am a sweet tooth and i am always been a fan of home baked breads and scones..
hmmnn
yummy smell is coming from the kitchen...
fresh scones are calling my name..
aww lots of strawberry jam and fresh cream..yum yum

here is my fav recipe of scones for you..
Scones
  • 2 cups sifted cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup light cream (or milk)
  • 1 tablespoon lightly beaten egg white
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and place the shelf in the middle.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.  Rub the butter into the dry mixture until the mixture looks like peas.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, egg white and cream.  Mix thoroughly.
  4. Put the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  5. Shape the dough into a large circle about 6 inches in radius, and 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into 8 wedges.  Place on an greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  6. Remove when golden brown.
  7. Serve with jam and fresh cream....
