Tea Time

As I had posted, earlier, I have been on a search for a perfect scone recipe. I have been trying to recreate the English scones that we had on a recent cruise, pictured below.

My version, from Lynnleigh's and my tea party last week, is shown at left. It turned out a little crumblier than I would have liked but the flavor was wonderful; I am going to keep making adjustments for texture. The recipe can be found here. I can't find clotted cream, so we used unsweetened, whipped cream; a healthy(!) slathering of that with a dollop of raspberry jam and it was ready for the official taste test.
Yes, this will do just fine!

Life is Good!

You can find clotted cream at King Arthur Flour website. I also had scones in England that were so good and had my first taste of clotted cream (delicious!) in 1997. I'm not sure if the jarred variety could be as good as fresh.

Had clotted cream at a Scottish Festival last August--for the first time. Delicious!
This looks like a delightful tea party. :)

Looks good! I see that there is a way you can make your own clotted cream, although it is a time consuming project. I remember fighting my siblings for the cream that floats to the top when you boil milk. It might be the reason I became the cook in the family!
