Devonshire Cream for Skinny Scones

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Debber

This goes great with my Bed & Breakfast Scones especially if you're making the basic scone recipe, then you have room to add a few RICH calories like cream cheese! This is excellent as an alternative to regular (boring?) whipped cream on pies or cakes, too.

I followed the recipe exactly and while the cream looked beautiful, it tasted more like cream cheese than Devonshire cream. I've been to many afternoon teas and had many different Devonshire creams and every single one was infinitely better than this one. I'm pregnant so I thought that maybe my taste buds were off so I had my husband taste it. He's also had numerous Devonshire creams and thought this was a terrible recipe. I think had I left out the sour cream it would've been fantastic (but then it would just be whipped cream really). I had to toss it in the trash : (.
