Practice holding your pinky finger out when you drink the tea.

Fairlight. Perhaps you have seen some of their cookies at the place you work.
I work at the production place, not that storefront bakery.

Scones are super easy to make, and hard to screw up. Unless you are distracted and leave the butter out.

My favorite recipe is with dried cherries, almonds, and just a handful of white chocolate chips.

Indeed! I indulge in a Fairlight cookie for lunch many days.

I'll just back up a truck to the loading dock. As I said, my wife loves scones.

Here you go. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...e-Scones-15682

Substitute blueberries for cranberries and lemon zest for orange. Don't overwork the dough (I just pat it together) and they will come out nice and puffy.
