Mock cream recipe 2

There is no way to get away from the slightly gritty texture of mock cream recipes if you use granulated sugar it BUT as confectioners (icing) sugar was not really being produced alternatives had to be thought of for those special treats and occasions that warranted a little decadence from limited rations…

Today I treated my Hobbits to split scones topped with mock cream and sliced strawberries….Em Hobbit even licked the bowl !

Here is the recipe I used- it tasted pretty good!
