Jan's StorySince clotted cream was banned on import due to mad cow disease, I found a great substitute for it!
A tea house I went to one time shared this with me and I've made it ever since.
Some people call this Devonshire cream I think.
cream cheese, room temperature
regular granulated sugar

1In a large bowl, combine all but the whipping cream. Stir well.
2Add unwhipped whipping cream.
3Beat with a mixer until it's stiff. It should have the texture of bowl margarine or softened butter. Store in refrigerator. (But there won't be any left to store!) I've never used anything but whipping cream for this recipe and also always use brand name of Philadelphia Cream Cheese. I tried the store brand once and it didn't taste as rich. I don't think cool whip would work with this recipe, either.

I love love love clotted cream and scones. My husband was born in Wales and that is always the highlight of my trip over ther with him, clotted cream, scones and on to Cornwall for Cornish Pasties mmmmmmmmm That's the only decent things the all of England and Wales eats LOL

Ha! Last summer I was in England and was so surprised how we had creamed peas (which I detest) with everything and baked beans all the time with everything. The clotted cream & scones are a real winner, though! I just saw a website that says you can get clotted cream from England again now, but the lady at our tea house said it was still banned so I don't know if it can be imported or not. I could eat it with a spoon straight from the bowl!!

Ithink the ban may be lifted. My hubby ordered a case of it a couple of months ago. I thought the hoof and mouth deal was over in the UK. I was there when the horizons were ablaze with burning carcasses and we had to step onto chemical pads at all airports and drive across them in our car. It was terrible. My hubby had a real eye opener of an experiece getting used to Texas food LOL And I owned a Mexican restaurant for years and years, now he eats the salsa like a pro lol

Ha! Pauleta, that's funny! That's great he loves Texan/American food now. I think if I had gone through the chemical stuff, burning carcasses, etc., it might temper me off beef for a while. Anyway, am glad the ban is lifted. Did you buy the cream in the jar or was it canned? I'm amazed how good it tastes as some things in a jar/can are not as good. Anyway, I will continue to make the faux cream. Once my daughter had her college friends for a tea and after the tea they sat and ate and ate the cream and begged me to make more so they could take it with them! It was so funny--during the tea they were all dressed up and prim and proper and as soon as people started to leave, they kicked off their shoes, came into the kitchen and started eating leftovers and the cream like nobody's business! We have a winter storm warning for most of KY and it looks like more snow days for me. I teach ESL and we've already had 3 snow days this winter. I'm in Northern Kentucky up by Cincinnati so it will probably be ice with the snow. Have a good week!

It's in little jars, like 4 oz and it's expensive so I'm gonna do a batch of your recipe for sure. We were in Ky for the first time last fall while RV'ing. Lots of really nice folks and some great food. In fact right outside of Jamestown (south KY) I ate the best Mexican food of my life......and that is saying something!
Stay safe in the storm.
