Scones with Clotted Cream and strawberry Jam

My girlfriend make scones, they are delightful, she also went all out and made clotted cream, the left over milk-cream was used in the scones, and I can taste that they were made with butter, they are very rich indeed.

    I LOVE this combination…
    Both in the mouth –
    With its flavours of BRIGHT strawberry jam,
    buttery, crunchy, flaky biscuit
    layered in such creamy deliciousness
    – Plus a treat to the eye
    Then, to serve it on this gorgeously detailed pressed-glass plate is the crowning touch of crystalline elegance: )
    Many thanks to both of you for sharing such a wonderful composition!
