I have noticed a vast number of cook books coming out of the New York area, and they all seem to be from bakeries. Apparently New York is the baking capital of the world. I thought since there are so many I should try a few out so I used the handy library and reserved my self some copies. I will admit I was skeptic at first I mean how good could they be. Well my first one arrived for me to pick up and my oh my was I wrong. It is filled with delicious sounding recipes and I must say I want to try every single one. This one, Alice’s Tea Cup ,not only got me right into the kitchen but it also made me want to fly right on down to New York and try it out! The cook book does have a vast variety of baking but really drew me in were the scone recipes. So many to try, so little time. And so I made the Rice Krispie treat Scones to arousing applause. The whole family loved them. I will be making them again for sure. So if you are looking for a cook book to add to your collection, might I be so bold to recommend Alice’s Tea Cup.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 1/2 (3/4 cup) sticks unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup Rice Krispies
- 1 1/4 cup Buttermilk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup sugar
1. In large mixing bowl mix together the first 5 ingredients. Cut butter into small pieces and work into dough using your hands until nice and crumbly.
2. Stir in the marshmallows and rice krispies and make a well in the center. Add vanilla and buttermilk and stir until just combined.
3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and shape into a round or rectangular shape about 1 1/2 inches thick. Use dough cutters to cut out wedges. ( I used a pizza cutter and cut into slabs.)
4. Place dough onto a non-stick baking sheet and brush with heavy cream. Sprinkle with sugar.
5. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.
6. Eat and enjoy!
