There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ~ Jane Austen

Hello friends and welcome to my HOME.
I decided to take a break from wading through my computer mess and do a post for you. As I mentioned to you on the weekend, I am cancelling my HOME linky party but I will try to share something home related during the week.

Today I am sharing my tea biscuit recipe. I've had a few ladies ask me for it and Sarah, in particular, this is for you.

This is pretty straight forward and I've always had good success making them.

Tea Biscuits
Sift together -
2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

Cut in 1/3-1/2 cup shortening with pastry blender.
Add 1 cup milk and mix just enough to make a soft dough. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface, roll out, and cut out biscuits with cookie cutter or a small glass. Just before popping them in the oven, brush the tops with milk or cream.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 450 for about 10 minutes. 

These are wonderful served with jam or lemon curd and clotted or whipped cream.

Thank you for visiting today.

Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.
Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let Thy beauty and Thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place. ~ Edgar A. Guest

I am sharing with these parties this week ~

  1. Hi Sandi.
    Nice to see you again. I thought maybe you were going for a while.
    I am jotting down your recipe. It looks simply divine.
    You do have such a lovely collection of china ware.
    happy days

  2. Hi Sandi,

    Wonderful recipe, simple both in its ingredients and instructions, so I will definitely make these. Thank you for sharing it and the lovely photos of your tea setting!


  3. Oh my goodness, these look wonderful!! I will save this and give it a try.

  4. Why do things have to break anyway? Ha - right now a repairman is here to fix an only 9 year old refrigerator in the kitchen upstairs at my store. The cost? About 1/2 of what the refrigerator cost 9 years ago. And computers - wow - we just spent a bundle on that note! Hope you get things fixed cheaper than we did.
    Your biscuits look lovely and this post is very sweet. I always ENJOY everything!

  5. Hi Sandi
    Glad to see you can post at least. I've always used buttermilk in my biscuits but I'm going to give your recipe a try to see how they differ in taste. They look nice and fluffy.

  6. Mmmm...Sandy...another sweet and delicioius recipe. Your tea setting is gorgeous

  7. Thanks for sharing your recipe for your lovely tea biscuits, Sandi. I copied it down and will definitely try it soon. Blessings, Pamela

  8. Sandi,

  9. Hello Sandi. These look really good. I can almost taste them. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.

  10. I will miss your party.

    Those tea biscuits look delicious. I am trying to avoid flour, but you are tempting me.

  11. Hi Sandi--I'm visiting via A Delightsome Life link party :) Your tea things are beautiful and those tea cakes look scrumptious. We lived in England for two years and I know good biscuits and scones when I see them! Blessings, Diana

  12. That sounds just like my tea biscuit recipe. They are so good with butter and molasses too!

  13. This is so beautiful! I love the pictures, and I look forward to trying to make the biscuits. I so enjoy coming are a blessing! Love, Cheryl

  14. Oh, my word, Sandi! The tea biscuits look yummy! I have the same tea set that I bought when I last visited PEI! :-) I haven't been here in awhile and am just now getting a chance to catch up on your past posts! XO

  17. Hi Sandi,
    Nothing beats a real homemade biscuit and nothing will do but a homemade one for strawberry shortcake. I do LOVE your red teapot and creamer...super pretty.
    Hugs, Lynnie
