A New Way to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Scones. Probably the best known of all teatime treats, scones are a rich, buttery type of biscuit just waiting for butter or jam. You’ll find some very nice commercial mixes in your favorite supermarket, next to the biscuit mix; or I’ll be happy to send you my favorite recipe.

Now, to make them fit your Valentine theme, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough before baking. And serve the warm scones with fruit butter: equal parts softened butter and raspberry, apricot, or strawberry preserves, blended well.
