Time for Tea

Tea Party for Two, my daughter Nicole and I had a lovely tea time.  Whole leaf green tea was steeped to perfection with a hint of floral flavor.  I found a wonderful recipe for strawberry scones at this site  http://confessionsoftart.blogspot.com/2009/03/strawberry-scones.html. and I made some "mock devonshire cream" which turned out fabulous.  I added some white chocolate chips to the scones, they were delicious, Nicole picked up some organic strawberry jam to go with and the combination of the three was delightful.  Floral plates I made and the absolutely beautiful crocheted tabled cloth was my mother's.

Love scones and Devonshire cream, would love to try your recipe for the cream.

Hi Bunny, here's the recipe:

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat until the mixture holds its shape and looks like softly whipped cream. Use right away or cover and refrigerate the cream until serving time.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Recipe:

4 ounces mascarpone

1 cup (240 ml) heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 or 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

Zest of lemon or lime (optional)
