Sticky fingers scone mixes are my favorite! For years I made scones from scratch, then I paid a visit to Harney & Sons Tea and the nice people there introduced me to sticky fingers. They are easy to make, wonderful to eat and come in many varieties! I usually eat mine plain, but if I am having a large crowd I serve them with clotted cream, lemon curd and real butter.
Another great addition to your tea time is petit fours! How can you resist such little packages of sweetness? I like to make petit fours, even thought they are time consuming. However, I have found a place that makes wonderful petit fours, and will ship them to your door - no mess involved! Divine Delights makes petit fours for all occasions! Not only are they absolutely beautiful - they taste great!!!
The last, but certainly not the least, sweet that I cannot get enough of is Zingerman's sour-cream coffee cake! If you are lucky enough to live in Ann Arbor, Michigan and can partake in this lovely sweet daily, I ENVY YOU! I order one every 2 months because my family and I just love them!! When you pick up this sour-cream cake for the first time you will be amazed at how heavy it is. I could not get over the weight - but when you take a bite it is so light and moist you would never believe it was possible. It does contain walnuts, so if you have a nut allergy it is not for you! (try the chocolate one)
Well, good luck! I hope you enjoyed my little primer on tea as much as I did!
