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.
- 1⁄2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- Beat whipping cream to stiff peaks; set aside.
- In separate bowl (use the same beaters), whip cream cheese until soft, then add vanilla and sugar & mix well.
- Gently mix/beat the whipping cream and the cream-cheese mixture until nicely fluffed.
- Chill for 2 hours or serve immediately.
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 : (.
This is an excellent low fat alternative - I am always on the look out to cut calories and this fits the bill perfectly - way to go Debber !!
I had planned on serving this with scones but I made the scones and then realized I had run out of cream. So, I bought some cream and then ended up not having the scone ingredients. I ended up eating this with a spoon and some fruit. This was my first time having Devonshire Cream and all I can say is it won't be my last. Cream cheese and whipping cream- Oh yeah Baby! I'll be making this again!
