Last week I spent quite a bit of time reading Hoffman Media's new book "Scones and Tea" and even googled a number of the tea rooms they featured. I also became enamored with the Lime-Coconut Scones recipe in the Gluten Free Section of the book. This morning I baked them - only with regular flour! You will find this recipe on page 83.
My new bouquet of dried hydrangeas came from my sister-in-law -Vivian's garden in Des Moines, Iowa. My husband brought them back in December and some were 12" from top to bottom.
I found these scones easy to bake before work this morning - I used a 2 1/2" scone cutter and rolled the dough out onto a pastry cloth. It made 16 scones. I used more key lime zest than the recipe called for and was GLAD I did. They are wonderful! I highly recommend this book: "Scones & Tea".
I love this Scottish "Mrs Bridges Lemon Curd" because it was just the right "tartness" for these scones. I sell several types in my store and would recommend this one for this scone - rather than a more "butter" based curd.
Today I am linking to Rose Chintz Cottage on Prince Edward Island for Tea Time Tuesday and also I am joining in with Kathy at A Delightsome Life....
