St. Patrick's Day was celebrated in the tea room yesterday with shamrocks galore, a touch of Guinness in several of the recipes, and a wearin' of the green.on her website. Although traditional scotch eggs are deep fried, we opted for the oven baked variety which is just as delicious!
Warm from the oven scones featured a Luck o' The Irish Cream Scone made using Kerrygold Irish Butter, and a Wearin' of the Green Irish Soda Bread Scone accompanied by Grannies Sweet Cream and Apricot Preserves, Fresh Orange Slices and Kiwi.
A dessert trio included Leprechaun's Lucky Treacle Oatmeal Cookie (a Tea Time Magazine Recipe), Blarney Stone Caramel Cashew Shortbread, and an Old Irish Pub Chocolate Guinness Cake (a Taste of Home Recipe, made as miniature cupcakes instead of a 9" springform cake). Happy St. Patrick's Day!
May you always have
walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain,
tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you,
those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
