I love this recipe for Cream Cheese Scones. If you are looking for an afternoon tea recipe this is it! Serve it with lemon curd, clotted cream and jam.

- 3 cups self-rising flour
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 stick of butter, cubed
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ cup buttermilk
- 1 Tbsp. Heavy Cream (or milk) to brush tops
- Mix flour and sugar. Cut in butter and cream cheese until coarse and crumbly. Add vanilla and buttermilk. Stir until well blended. Turn out on a floured surface, knead until easy to handle. Roll or pat to 1 inch thick circle. Cut with a 1½ inch biscuit cutter or to desired shape. Place on a greased cookie sheet. (Instead, I use parchment paper on a cookie sheet.) Brush tops with heavy cream or milk. Bake at 400 degrees 15 minutes until lightly brown on edges.
- Serve with Clotted Cream (mock clotted cream in the USA), Strawberry Jam or Lemon Curd and enjoy!
