This is just one of over 9,000 recipes we've collected since early 1996. Many of these recipes have been passed down from family member to family member and then shared with friends and then, with When it comes to recipes, the real secret is that all of our recipes always have been, and always will be free!

Devonshire Cream Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened

Scones Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Jam of your choice


  1. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Gradually beat in enough cream to achieve a spreading consistency. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

    Scones Preparation:

    Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add apricots, pecans and orange peel. With a fork, rapidly stir in 1 cup whipping cream just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times. Divide in half; shape each into a ball.

  2. Flatten each ball into a 6-inch circle; cut each circle into eight wedges. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with remaining whipping cream. Bake at 375° F for 13 to 15 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.
  3. Serve with Devonshire Cream and jam.
  4. Servings: 16 scones
