tea party!

Nothing beats curling up on the couch on a sunday afternoon with the new magazine and..........scones with jam and cream!! YAY!!

Here is what to do (but they are even tastier if you can get someone else to make them for you!)
image from weheartit
Ingredients:
plain flour, for dusting
3 cups of self-raising flour
80g butter, cubed
1 to 1 1/4 cups of milk
Jam (we love strawberry!) and whipped cream, to serve

Method:
Preheat oven to 200 C. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.

Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre.

Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth.

Pat dough out until 2cm thick. Using a cup as a cutter and cut out 16 circles. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour.

Bake for 20 -25 mins or until golden and well risen.
Server warm with jam and cream.

Have you ever seen the midriff look so beautiful and elegant?
Gene Tierney is rocking this vintage midriff, we are falling in love with this two piece over and over again, each time we look at the photo.
