We like to keep busy and so often volunteer for projects. But from the inception of a project until the event itself, there is a lot of plotting and planning to do. Linderhof's doors are always open for "Plotting and Planning Sessions"!!!
An afternoon meeting to discuss our group's latest project . . . and, of course, you can't come to Linderhof without something to drink and a nosh!
Since it's afternoon, tea, of course, and to munch on some wonderful Lemon Sour Cream Muffins which I found on one of my favorite blogs, One Perfect Bite. I "met" Mary ages ago on a food board and then lost contact with her -- when I found her and her blog again, I was ecstatic and many of her recipes find their way into Linderhof's menus.
Cups and tea plates in Spode Blue Italian, a napkin and a pastry fork (in case we want to be more dainty with our muffins!)
Instead of a centerpiece -- the muffins on a cake stand. Within easy reach as we plot and plan our latest project!
(From One Perfect Bite)
1/2 c. butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. lemon extract or 1 t. finely grated lemon zest
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
2 c. powdered sugar
3 T. lemon juice
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each addition. Beat in sour cream and vanilla and lemon extracts.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to creamed mixture just until moistened.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Combine the glaze ingredients; drizzle over muffins. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen
