Mimi's Valentine Raspberry Scones

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

A delicious treat on Valentine's Day or for a tea party. Each scone is two layers with a raspberry jam filling and sprinkled lightly with white sugar and then with red sugar crystals. Any other red jam would be fine--strawberry or cherry. They are beautiful on a tray or serve in a pretty basket lined with a napkin. If you are doing these for a tea party just use a smaller heart cookie cutter but it will make many more, or you could make a few small ones for the party and the rest larger ones for yourselves.

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  5. Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead about 5-6 times.
  6. Roll out to about 1/2" thickness and cut with a 4" heart-sharped cookie cutter; lightly press trimmings together and reroll to cut more scones--you should have 12.
  7. Place 6 hearts on a greased baking sheet (the rerolled ones are best for the bottom).

  9. Press along edges to seal.
  10. Sprinkle tops lightly with granulated sugar and then with the red sugar crystals.
