May/June 2009 Tea Time Magazine
A month or so ago, I was in a store and *almost* bought this neat-looking "brownie pan" with individual squares so your brownies would all have lovely, rounded corners. Tempting though it was, I resisted, thinking, "Now why do I really need that when I can just cut them into squares myself?" Why? I'll tell you why. Have you seen the cover of the new Tea Time? What is featured but White Silk Tartlets made using square tartlet pans, and that brownie pan would have been perfect for these! Sigh.
I'm intrigued that Tea Time's cover calls these tartlets "Our Best Dessert Ever!" That's a pretty bold statement to make for a magazine that's been dishing up all manner of desserts for quite a few years now. These tartlets are made with white chocolate and heavy cream, which sounds yummy, so I'll have to make them and see if I agree.
The most interesting feature in this issue is one that's particularly timely, recipes for a Kentucky Derby Tea. The big race is coming up Saturday, and yesterday our magazine's customer service rep in Kentucky told me everyone is excited and a bit worried about rain on race day. Oh, to be there myself! If you're into the Derby Day festivities, do not miss this issue of Tea Time. There are recipes for Herbed Shrimp on Grits Cakes, Mint Julep Profiteroles served in tiny little silver cups, and my favorite item on this menu, horseshoe-shaped tea sandwiches. Clever!
