    Kree's Note:

    With Valentine's Day coming up I just had to share this scrumptious-looking recipe for heart-shaped scones. I plan on trying it very soon using margarine and soy milk in place of the heavy cream! I got this from Care2.com's Eat Well Naturally newsletter. They also say you can make the dough hearts ahead of time and freeze them, then bake the frozen dough hearts 20 to 25 minutes.

      Preheat oven to 375°F In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    2. 2
      Cut the butter into small cubes and sprinkle them over the flour mixture, then cut the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    7. 7
      Use a 3 1/4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough into heart-shapes, gathering the scraps and repeating until all the dough has been used (This will make about 9 hearts).

      Very good and easy to make! I left out the nuts but made them according to the directions without any problems. My heart shapes were about 2 1/2 inches just the right size. Thanks for sharing!
