Scones and Devonshire Cream

Basic Scones

2 cups flour
1 TBS baking powder
2 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp salt
6 TBS butter
1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter
until mixture resembles a coarse cornmeal.
Make a well in the center
and pour in buttermilk.
(can use regular milk)
Mix until dough clings together
and is a bit sticky but do not over mix.
Turn out dough onto a floured surface
and shape into a 6 to 8 inch round,
about 1 1/2 inches thick.
Cut into pie wedges or use a biscuit cutter.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Brush with lightly beaten egg for shine.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes,
till light brown.

Serve warm with cream! Mmmm!

Mock Devonshire Cream

1/2 cup heavy cream
OR 8 oz softened cream cheese
2 TBS confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup sour cream

In a chilled bowl, beat cream
until medium-stiff peaks form,
adding sugar during
the last few minutes of beating.
(If using cream cheese,
just stir together with sugar)
Fold in sour cream and blend.

Enjoy on warm scone! Mmmm!

Have a cup of tea
Along with cream on a scone.
'Tis better with a friend
But can be enjoyed alone.
