Original Teapot Bank

 

Saving Your Pennies For Tea….

When we were kids, many of us had little “banks” (often shaped like little pigs) that we would put our coins in (mostly pennies). When enough had gathered up, we would take those coins to the local store for a sweet treat. Now, as an adult and tea lover, I save my pennies for tea.

Cranberry-Meyer Lemon Scones….a favorite for a rainy day….

 

 

A huge bin filled with smooth skinned Meyer Lemons triggered a drooling response. Wiping my mouth, and stuffing a plastic bag with yellow fruit, I dreamed of our Oregon St. Tea Company signature Cranberry-Meyer Lemon Scones.

Rushing in the door, I plopped the groceries down….put away all items requiring refrigeration….washed the lemons and proceeded to stir up a batch of scones.

Add a little clotted cream…(which I found in our local market!)……

 

 

…a cup of tea…..

 

 

…..and enjoy those delicious scones….

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
Add zest of Meyer lemon.

Turn onto floured work space and knead until easy to handle. (About 4-5 turns)
Pat gently to 1 inch thick.
