Celebrate with cream
This mock Devonshire Cream recipe is simple, easy to make, and delicious. Use it to celebrate fresh fruit of the season or on scones. Fix it the day ahead to make serving it easier, or fix it the day of your event.
I have used this on both scones and fruit, and I like it either way.
You need four ingredients: cream cheese, sour cream, confectioners’ sugar, and heavy whipping cream.
