Valentine Scones

A few years ago I found a recipe in a magazine for Valentine Scones. They were sweeter than the scones I usually make, and less “wholesome”… They used only white flour and white sugar. They would be perfect for Bill, my husband, who even after over 30 years of marriage to a whole foods vegetarian, has yet to give up his more “traditional” shall we say, foods. I make these scones for him every Valentine’s Day.
It is a simple scone recipe. You will need flour, buttermilk, butter, a bit of sugar and baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix it up and knead a few times. Then roll it out and cut 12 hearts with a heart shaped cutter.

Some will be tops, others bottoms. Pick the nicest for the tops.

Then you assemble them. You will need some jam, a bit of milk to stick the edges together, and some sugar. Since these are Valentine’s Scones, I use granulated sugar mixed with red decorating sugar.

Spoon some jam onto the middle of each of the 6 bottom hearts.

Brush a bit of milk around the edges.

Place the tops on the bottoms and press the edges gently to seal. Don’t worry if a bit of jam squeezes out.

Sprinkle the sugars on top.

Pop into a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

Cool them on a rack for a bit. And here they are. Enjoy!

❤Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!❤
