High Tea isn’t complete without Scones and freshly made Clotted Cream
Rather than traditional jam we’ve topped our Scones with Raspberry Flavour Pearls. It’s a great excuse to bring out Nana’s heirloom crockery and enjoy a chat. We also whipped up some cucumber sandwiches (no crusts please!) for our afternoon soiree. Feel free to substitute the tea for some bubbles…it’s always 5 o clock somewhere!
What you’ll need…
- Pure Cream – has around 40% fat and no additives
- Icing Sugar – pure (icing mixture contains other additives)
- Vanilla Pod or paste
- 2 1/2 cup self-raising flour
- 60 gm cold butter – chopped
- 3/4 cup cold milk
- Raspberry Flavour Pearls
You will need to make the Clotted Cream the day before your gathering so lets start here. It’s really easy and oh so delicious so give it a try if you have time. OR you could buy some from your local gourmet store!
Ready to serve…
Simply halve your cooled scones (if they are warm the cream will melt and slide off), top with some of your rich and delicious clotted cream. Place them on to your serving plate and finish with your Raspberry Flavour Pearls.
Now to just relax, chat and eat…

Good for muffin!
