You NEED This Recipe

I just noticed that I have not posted my scone recipe on the blog. This travesty must be corrected. As anyone who already has this recipe can contest, this is a GREAT recipe! It originally came from my friend Natalie who got it from a B & B that she stayed at.

1 egg, beaten
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 Tbs. butter softened
1/2 cup craisins, currants or raisins (today I actually used dried blueberries -mmm)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Put egg into a 1 cup measuring cup and add enough buttermilk to make 1 cup. In a different bowl combine next four ingredients. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add chips and raisins. Add liquid and stir until just moistened. Drop 1/2 cup at a time onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Makes 12 scones. Bake at 400 deg. for 12-15 minutes.

Devonshire Cream (You HAVE to have it with the cream!)
3 oz. softened cream cheese
1 Tbs. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3-1/2 cup whipped cream

Beat the cream cheese and add the sugar and vanilla. Beat well. Beat in whipped cream. Cover and chill 2 -24 hours.
