Cream Scones and Clotted Cream

These Cream Scones and Clotted Cream is the perfect accompaniment for your morning or afternoon tea.

One of the first scones I mastered a few years ago was Cream Scones with Clotted Cream. Scones are a wonderful savory or sweet biscuit baked into various shapes and sizes.  If you have ever been to a tea party or Starbucks you have seen or had one or maybe even two depending on the size.

How Do You Make Scones?

I usually make sweet ones since I make them for tea parties but there are many savory scones that are just as good if don’t prefer them as a dessert.

The great thing about Cream Scones is they go with everything. You can serve them with Clotted Cream, Lemon Curd, Lime Curd, or Flavored Jam.

The Cream Scone is your basic scone recipe and you can add things to it to make different flavors such as Cinnamon, blueberry or Cranberry Orange. You could just add some lemon zest to them to add a little flavor.

I used to make the dough and make two discs outs of them, I would flatten them out and cut them into 8 pieces. Then I got this amazing scone pan and they were perfect size each time.  Whichever way you want to make them they will come out delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter chilled unsalted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Clotted Cream (My Version)

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Almond extract or Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoon sifted Confectioners Sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat over to 400 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry cutter work in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Add the eggs and cream slowly, until mixture is tender but not runny. Use the dough hook and continue to mix until everything comes together. Make two discs out of the dough and flatten out on cutting board. Cut into 4 or 8 equal pieces. Or put small pieces into the scone pan filling up each space. Bake for 13 – 15 minutes or until scones are light golden.
  • Clotted Cream – Put a metal mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes to get cold. Use your hand mixer and place cream into the bowl and mix for about 3 minutes. Once it starts to thicken, add the sugar and the extract. Mix about 1 – 2 more minutes. Put in a pretty bowl with a teaspoon for your guests to use.
