I cannot understand why people modify a recipe, make substitutions that don't work, and then give the original recipe a poor rating!!!!!

Too salty/cheesy tasting, and far too liquidy. A proper Devon cream should be thicker (like whipped butter), and slightly sweet.

Absolutely delish - a nice change from ordinary whipped cream! I will use it for more than just scones & fruit - anyplace you use whipped cream, except that it is much stiffer. I froze extra in dollops on wax paper, then stored in plastic bags.

Not Bad! I've had real Devonshire/Clotted Cream and for not being able to find it easily (or even at a reasonable price) this does the trick! Next time, however, I think I'll up the heavy cream content just a bit to rid the end produt of the cream cheese after taste. Thank you!!

This stuff is so good I could use it for a dip with cookies! Instead I used it to top the "Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie" from this site....WOW! Many reviews here confused me because some say to increase the cream cheese and some say that all they tasted was cream cheese. So I went with the 3 oz. as called for and I wouldn't change a thing. I'll make this many times over!

Great recipe. I made this cream for our church ladies tea. I made a small change to the recipe by adding 3 tablespoons of sugar instead of 1. We used this cream with scones and anything else we could, it was so good!

3oz of cream cheese isn't enough, if you add 8oz (a package) then the consistency is right, but it still tastes like cream cheese. If you add 6-8oz of sour cream it tastes MUCH better.

This was very easy to make and tasted incredible! It had the perfect texture and whipped right up in my stand mixture. I served it with Grandma Johnson's Scones from this site and the two combined were heaven in high tea!
