We love having tea time, and one of my favorite blends of tea is Birthday Blend from Shady Gables Tea Room in Versailles, MO
It is so wonderful hot or cold. Hot we add a little milk and sugar and iced I make a big pitcher and sweeten it, absolutely delightful.
Last week I made the best drop biscuit recipe I have ever tasted. Very light and airy, sweet and dainty perfect for tea time, I also used them for dumplings in chicken in dumplings.
2 cups of flour
2 T. raw sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tarter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter cut into cubes
2/3 cup milk
Mix first five ingredients, then cut in the butter, stir in milk and egg. Drop by large tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Lovely with honey butter.
