Tea Parties in the Fall
How Cozy!

Do you have a favorite sandwich recipe that everyone enjoys?

Then I really need your help! I have started a new section for Tea Party Guide for Tea Sandwich Recipes and would like your help. Scroll towards the bottom of the tea sandwich recipes page and you will see a box where you can start entering your recipe.

Please share with us! Even if you have one that is similar to ones already posted, post yours too because variety is the spice of life. I look forward to seeing all the different ones that come in and can't wait to try them!

Thank You,

Pear Scones
Just Right for Fall

Pear Scones are a nice addition to your tea tray this Fall. They are easy to fix and hit the spot. Try some variations like adding 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, ginger or cloves to change them up a bit.

Visit us at Tea Party Guide to find more recipes to round out your tea party menu.

Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 dash of salt 1/3 cup butter, chilled 1 egg 1/2 cup half-and-half cream 1 cup chopped pear(3-4 medium)

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl; cut in the butter until the mixture has a crumbly texture.

Mix together the egg and half-and-half in a separate bowl; stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture just until combined(DO NOT over-mix), stir in the pear. Drop large spoonfuls of the dough onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Best when served warm. ;-)
