come for tea

I truly enjoy meeting TeaTime readers at tea festivals throughout the United States. Hearing how the magazine inspires you is so rewarding.

The Cutting Edge I just started baking scones from your recipes. What do I do to the fluted, circular cutters so that the scone falls out and doesn’t stick to the inside? I have gently pushed them out onto the baking sheet, but is there a better way? I love TeaTime magazine, and your scones are delicious. HELEN SANDERS Via E-mail Our test kitchen professional, Janet Lambert, recommends spraying the inside of the cutter lightly with cooking spray (Pam). The scones will fall out of the cutter rather than having to be pushed out. Reading a New Issue of TeaTime Life can get hectic and sometimes emotionally draining. When it does, there is just something calming about making a small pot of tea and sitting down with your magazine. Leafing through the pages of all…
