I have only had this beautiful cookbook for a few days and have already tried several recipes. The chocolate cake is amazing. I plan on making it for my daughter's birthday next week. Last night I tried the lentil and bacon salad and my kids were asking for more. Tomorrow morning it's time for scones. I will let the kids decide which flavor. The recipes are easy to follow and the images are so lovely. I love to give cookbooks as my holiday gift to close friends and family and this is the perfect book for that. It's the perfect size and is fun to look through even when you are not cooking up one of their delicious scones.

'Alice's Tea Cup: Delectable Recipes for Scones, Cakes, Sandwiches' is just that - two hundred forty pages of recipes from a popular New York tea shop. Recipes run the gaumont from savories such as Mate Carnival Egg Salad to baked items such as Banana Nutella Cake and Berry Bunch Tisane-Infused Scones. But the primary reason for buying the book is the recipe for scones. And for the unenlightened but soon to be pleased, scones are rich biscuits often containing cream and butter. Authors Haley and Lauren Fox offer a basic scone recipe and several variations. Every good cook needs a good scone recipe. And if you don't have one, this is a good place to start. The scone variations are interesting; my personal favorites are the Black Forest Ham and Cheese Scones and the Walnut Stilton Scones. Scones are usually simple and quick to make; many of these recipes may be a bit time consuming and are more 'tea party' than family brunch. The bottom line: An interesting assortment, but glance through this one before you buy and see if these are recipes that you'll really be using. The publisher provided a copy of this book for review.
