DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and nutmeg.
  • With cold fingers (dipped in cold water and dried), rub the cold lard into the dry ingredients.
  • Make a well in the center, add buttermilk, and work with one hand into a dough that can be rolled out.
  • Dust rolling surface with flour. Shape the dough into a ball and roll it out into an 8 inch circle.
  • With a table knife dipped in flour, cut the circle in half, then the halves in thirds, to produce six equal wedges. Shape each wedge into a heart.
  • Grease baking sheet and place hearts on it so they do not touch. Bake for 15 minutes, until cakes are puffy and nicely browned.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle tops immediately with sugar (the crystals will melt slightly and stick).
  • When cool, wrap with blue tissue paper, the traditional wrapping of white sugar crystals, for gift giving.
