Cooking Is Right Up Her Alley …
Katie Bonner and the rest of the locals from Victoria Square invite you into
their kitchens to share tantalizing recipes and intimate stories about food,
family, and life. So tie on your apron and sharpen your knives, because Recipes
To Die For is chock full of culinary treasures such as Andy Rust's Cinnamon
Rolls, Vance Ingram’s Barbequed Ribs, and Sweet Sue’s Toffee Squares. And you
don't want to miss Aunt Lizzie’s Cream Scones. They're to die for!
Tea Time With Katie
years, Katie Bonner had planned to open her own bed and breakfast -- The English
Ivy Inn ... but things didn't work out that way, and now she manages Artisans
Alley on quaint Victoria Square.
Part of Katie's plan for the business was to serve afternoon tea in the
lovely parlor of her Victorian home for her guests,
and to book parties for bridal showers, baby showers, and other special
occasions. She collected quite a few recipes, as well as vintage china,
linens, and silverware.
In Recipes To Die For, Katie shares her hopes and dreams for her English Ivy
Inn and some of the recipes, too! Such as her great aunt Lizzie's cream
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 egg and 1 egg yolk well beaten
1/3 cup light cream
1 egg white, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 450°. Sift flour once. Measure, add baking powder, salt, and
sugar, and sift again. Cut in butter. Add egg and cream all at once and stir
carefully until all flour is dampened. Then stir vigorously until mixture forms
a soft dough. Turn out on slightly floured board and knead 30 seconds. Roll ½
inch thick and cut in triangles. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops
lightly with egg white, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
Yield: 12 scones.
