Easy Tea Party Recipes:

Recipes for tea parties are really easy to make and enjoy.

I’ve been to lots of tea parties – from ones at home, to fundraisers, to those at the fanciest of tea rooms.

I remember going to my first afternoon tea. It was at a lovely little restaurant that was in an old Victorian house. We sat outside on the wrap around porch, little bouquets of flowers were on the tables, and enjoyed our “afternoon tea”.

That is one of the ways I like to think of an afternoon tea …with a charming setting, interesting conversation and food that is a treat.

Tea Party Sandwiches

One of my favorite things to eat is little cucumber sandwiches. At my tea parties, I serve them on small triangles of white bread, a slice of cucumber and a spread of cream cheese.

Other options for dainty little sandwiches include pimento cheese (I love Price’s brand) and chicken salad. 

Tea Party Recipes

A staple at many tea parties is the scone.

Scones are a heavy type of biscuit bread, and I just love them. I only eat them with afternoon tea, so that makes them special.

Sometimes you can find scone mixes at stores that carry food imports from the British Isles.

You can also make scones yourself with this tea party recipe for scones:

Scones with Currants for 8

2 cups of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

½ cup of currants
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
A little milk
A little extra sugar

To make…

  • Always use the freshest ingredients possible in your recipes.
  • Whisk the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder and make sure it is mixed well.
  • Stir in the currants.
  • Make a well in the center of your mixture and pour in the cream. Stir until moistened.
  • Place dough onto a floured surface and knead. Shape into a long flat log (8 to 10 inches long). Cut in half, reshape, and then cut each ½ into 4 pieces.
  • Place scones onto a greased baking sheet, brush with milk and sprinkle with the extra sugar.
  • Place into a 400 degree oven and bake for 7 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  • Cool, then enjoy!
  • Scones can be enjoyed as is, or try serving with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
