February Tea Time Treats

After sweet pastries dominated proceedings ovens in January (all the delicious entries and Karen's absolutely wonderful round-up can be found right here), this month's Tea Time Treats theme is:

(drum roll please)

Bring us your passion-fuelled puddings and pies and let us lust after your decadent desserts. Spoil us with your scones, bewitch us with your biscuits and tempt us with your tarts and traybakes. Charm us with your cakes and thrill us with your tea time treats for two!

The entry guidelines can be found right here.

Don't forget to email us (teatimetreatschallenge@yahoo.co.uk) by 28th February 2012 for inclusion in the round-up the following day.

Happy baking!

Kate and Karen
