I came across this Peach Tea Set at Goodwill for $2.99! Isn't it adorable? They are more of a "mug" than a teacup, but I like them just the same.
I love the bright colors and the shape. Even the texture is glossy smooth.
I found a recipe that I think would be perfect to serve with tea in my Peach Tea Set. I haven't had a chance to make it yet. Mostly because I haven't gotten any fresh peaches yet. I hope I haven't waited too long!
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 3/4 cups plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup ( 2 sticks) cold butter
1 large egg
2 peaches, pitted and thinly sliced (approx. 1/8"-1/4" thick)
Brown your butter: Melt butter in a small/medium saucepan over medium-low heat. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir frequently, scraping any bits from the bottom as you do. Keep your eyes on it; it burns very quickly after it browns. Set it in the freezer until solid (approx. 30 minutes).
Preheat oven to 375. Butter a 9X13 inch pan, or spray it with a nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together sugar, baking powder, flour salt and spices with a whisk.
Using a pastry blender or fork, blend the solidified brown butter and egg in to the flour mixture. It will be crumbly.
Pat 3/4 of the crumbs into the bottom of the prepared pan pressing firmly.
Tile peach slices over crum base in a single layer. Scatter remaining crumbs evenly over peaches.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until top is slightly brown and you can see a little color around the edges.
Cool completely in pan before cutting into squares.
If anyone tries this recipe, let me know. Hopefully I'll get to make this soon and enjoy it with some tea in my cute peachy mugs.
