Cranberry Heart Scones
What's your Take?

Their light texture and fruity flavor make these heart-shaped scones a treat for your sweetie.

What you'll need

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tbsp. margarine
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk

How to make it

  1. Combine the 4 four ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Blend in the margarine with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the zest and cranberries. In another bowl, beat the eggs well and then stir the milk into them.

  2. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and pour the wet ingredients into it. Stir just until blended. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead a few times. Pat the dough to a 1-inch thickness. Use a butter knife to cut heart shapes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 8 scones.

    Toppings

    Quick Strawberry Jam Empty a 16-ounce package of unsweetened frozen strawberries into a glass bowl. Microwave on medium until the berries are hot and soft (about 12 minutes). Stir in a 3-ounce package of strawberry Jell-O®.

    Fruit Butter Blend 2 parts softened butter and 1 part strawberry, raspberry, or apricot jam.

    Flavored Cream Cheese Smooth 4 ounces of cream cheese with a wooden spoon. (Add a tablespoon of yogurt for a creamier consistency.) Fold in a few fresh or defrosted strawberries or raspberries.
