Halloween!? I know it’s May, but it’s never too early to start planning or it’s even better if every day is a little mini-Halloween…although it can be tough when it’s 91 degrees outside. You can’t bake scones and drink hott tea when it’s like that. Tea may not seem very creepy by itself, but it’s the preferred drink of creeps everywhere. I just wanted to remind you.
My favorite tea right now is Pickwick English Tea Blend…I also love their Perzik peach tea but it’s been difficult to find lately. For the scones I get Sticky Fingers Bakeries scone mix from Cost Plus World Market and bake up a scone right before I eat it, I love that stuff ’cause you just need to add water and they are delish. If you make em make sure you don’t add too much water, they are best with just a tiny bit of water so the dough is super thick…pop in the oven and about 15 minutes later you have a piping hot scone and can now enjoy Brother Cadfael or Sherlock Holmes with a scruptious scone and a perfect Pickwick tea. I like it when the scone is fully slathered with butter and covered in jam. I also was really into that clotted cream stuff for a while but the last few batches tasted a little funky so I am back to butter for a bit 🙂 If you’ve never had it, it’s like a cross between whipped cream and butter…yuuuuum!
