I love this recipe for Cream Cheese Scones. If you are looking for an afternoon tea recipe this is it! Serve this homemade scone with lemon curd, clotted cream and jam.
Did you know that you can freeze cream cheese? It works great and saves money! I like to purchase cream cheese in bulk on sale and stockpile it for recipes. Check out this post Can You Freeze Cream Cheese to find out how!

Cream Cheese Scone RecipePrint Recipe
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 stick of butter cubed
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 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 1 1/2 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!
