That Little Planned Tea Time...

For the 365 Lifestyle Lolita Challenge #16 the prompt was to plan a special meal and I went with a small afternoon tea, and planned to do it the next day. I was excited about what I had decided to plan, needing a little pick me up recently, though it there were a few things to prep in such a hurry. It was good I had no prior plans and surprisingly all of the ingredient at hand.

Tea is served!

And as luck would have it, I did manage to make everything I had initially planned out for the tea, some of the recipes were new to me, they turned out a success. As the banana bread was already done, things were sped up for making a quick tea sandwich, while running a quick errand I saw a special on grapes, a delicious little addition, and of course the scones.

Dressed for tea

Speaking of scones, recipes usually vary and most of the ones I've tried in the past usually make for quite a large stock pile. This isn't really ideal when you are one lone frilly for the day and don't often eat more then 1 or 2 in a sitting. This one I found is simple and very quick and can be altered to have different extra ingredients, for mine I did use 2 extras and used the 4 tablespoon measurement for both - it would only apply, I believe, when one is a ground ingredient, but that's up to your discretion, in my opinion  - and they turned out delightful.

Quick and easy

2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar (you can use a little extra to sprinkle on the top
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cold butter
5 tbsp milk
4 tbsp of whatever you want to mix in

<3 Preheat oven to 450.

<3 Mix all of the dry ingredients with what you want to add extra (rose petals, chocolate, etc).

<3 Add the butter and then the milk, if too try add a few drops of extra milk till smooth.

<3 Roll into a ball and flatten to about an 1-1/2" and cut or pull into 4 parts.

<3 Optional: Sprinkle extra sugar over tops and then bake for 10-12 minutes.
