Summertime Strawberry Bars

Summertime Strawberry Bars

In the summer when the days are hot,
I like to find a shady spot,
And hardly move a single bit
And sit, and sit, and sit, and sit.*

While you're under that shade tree, have a Poetry Teatime and a summery treat like the strawberry bars below!

It seems we can thank Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788 – 1861), for the pairing of tea and scones. It's said that she asked for tea and "sweet breads," which included scones, and was so taken by the combination that she repeated the order every afternoon thereafter, establishing the English tradition.

If you'd like to bake scones for your next Poetry Teatime, here is a simple recipe.
