A yummy, inexpensive substitute for Clotted Cream!
Makes approximately 2 1/2 cups.
1 (3 oz.) package cream cheese (equal to 1/3 cup)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. butter flavoring
1. In an electric mixer, beat cream cheese at medium speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar and butter flavoring and beat well.
2. Gradually add the heavy whipping cream and continue beating until solid peaks form. Do not overbeat or cream will separate.
3. Handle gently and as little as possible. Turn gently into a plastic container, seal tightly and refrigerate until use.Will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days.
4. On the day of your tea party, transfer mock clotted cream to your serving bowls. Cover and keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve with the scones. This cream will separate if it sits on the table too long, so be sure to keep cold until used.
Tip: Butter flavoring can be found with extracts in the baking aisle of grocery stores or from cake decorating supply stores such as Wilton Cake Supplies.
Gift Idea: Consider giving this recipe on a cute store bought or handmade recipe card as an inexpensive, but much appreciated, party favor!
