Pengenna Pasties and Scones with Cornish Clotted Cream

Everyone told me to wait until I got to Cornwall to eat a real Cornish pasty. And since the Cornish Clotted Cream is legendary, I was geared up for that, too!
We found Pengenna Pasties and Tea Room in Tintagel. Pengenna is well-known in Cornwall for their home-made pasties and their scones using "original family recipes." A pasty is described as a "hearty meal wrapped in a delicious pastry." I ordered the Traditional Pasty (beef, potato, swede and onion.) It was too hearty for me, so I only ate about half of it. Next came an order of their famous scones and "real" Cornish Clotted Cream. Yum! After our walk to the castle ruins, we picked up a few pastries and scones to go at the Pengenna Bakery and to take back to the B&B for a light picnic supper later that evening.
Note: My fellow tea-loving, scone-making Blog friends can just imagine how much I enjoyed stepping into the bakery to watch this scone-making process!! Woo-Hoo!

Yes, visiting the kitchens are the best, to see how things are made! Did they share any tips on making scones?
I'd love to try a Cornish pasty. Maybe I can find something similar in Victoria next month.
