  • With a pastry blender cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl combine the cream, beaten egg, and vanilla; mix well.
  • Add this to the flour mixture and stir till just combined; do not overmix.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead about 5-6 times.
  • 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.
  • Place 6 hearts on a greased baking sheet (the rerolled ones are best for the bottom).
  • Top each one with 1 tablespoon of jam; moisten edge of dough with water from your finger and place a second heart on top.
  • Press along edges to seal.
  • Sprinkle tops lightly with granulated sugar and then with the red sugar crystals.

  • Serve in a basket with a pretty napkin.
