Friday Favorites, 4.29.11

I'm back for another Friday Favorites, fine friends! Yes, all of that alliteration was intended. ;-)

What are my favorites this week? Well, I couldn't go without sharing something related to the Royal Wedding that is happening as I type this! Yes, I will admit it... I woke up early this morning to watch. I guess my invitation got lost in the mail, but I really don't mind watching from the comfort of my own living room. :)

So how about a delicious baked treat the the British might enjoy? When I think British, I think scones. I've come to love scones in the last few years. They tend to have a bad reputation for being dry and tasteless, but they can be far from that if you have the right recipe! I've made several delicious scone recipes over the past few years.

1) Strawberry Scones by Annie's Eats

Aren't those gorgeous looking? And now that berries are in season, they'd be a great spring treat. Maybe I'll make them sometime soon and share my thoughts about them with you. :)

2) Earl Grey Tea Cookies by Shutterbean

What else do I think of when I think of the British? Tea! Although I love tea, because I am a baker, I have to share with you tea cookies...and more specifically, Earl Grey tea cookies! Earl Grey is one of my favorite kinds of tea. I actually bookmarked these cookies a while ago to make (some day I'll get around to it!), but today's Royal Wedding is the perfect occasion to share the recipe with you all. Such a unique creation!

That's going to be it for this week's Friday Favorites. I've got a Royal Wedding to get back to! ;-)

I'll be back soon with my own recipes though! I have so many in the line-up to share with you...

  1. Haha I would have gotten up if I had tea and scones waiting for me (and a television)...but unfortunately...I have none. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for us!
