Once upon a tart....

Hello, my name is Sally and I am STILL a cookbook addict!

But, how could I resist zooba-ing this book after drooling over this photo?

It makes me want to go to the kitchen and MAKE IT right away

Honestly, Sally, I cannot keep up with you. I thought I read a lot of food blogs but you are constantly coming up with more I have never heard of.

I have 25 foodblogs bookmarked - I open them and quickly check the photos. If they appeal to me, I read it, if not I skip

(I know it is a silly approach, but that's how I do it... :-)

This is definitely a drool-worthy photo.  So much so that I thought I would make the recipe for Sunday lunch.  However, I'm wondering if the quantity of butter in the recipe is wonky.  She calls for 12 Tbs or 1 1/2 cups.  According to my understanding, when it comes to butter, 12 Tbs = 6 oz = 3/4 cup.  Does anyone have any light to shed?

From the book... 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes.

I was in Barnes and Noble on my lunch break and I was thumbing through cookbooks and I fell in LOVE with Once Upon a Tart. I went back to work, logged onto EBay, and bought it for $3 instead of over twenty dollars at B&M, though. I made one of their scones immediately after receiving it. It's a great book. And you can pick it up really cheap on EBay or used on Amazon.

Nice bit of enabling, lol.  I, too, have to book, and love it.  Many lovely recipes and good reading.
