I made these heart shaped scones for the first time and it tasted great . It is simple and easy to make with few ingredients.
Scone – It is a single serving cake or quick bread. Originated in Britain .It is similar to an American biscuit usually made of wheat flour , sugar , baking powder , butter , milk or yogurt or buttermilk and sometimes eggs.
The dough for the scones must be soft and sticky made from one part of liquid to three parts of wheat flour. This gives the scones a soft center.
I baked the egg less scones by using yogurt.
The original scones were round and flat , made with oats and baked on a griddle , then cut into triangle like quadrants for serving.
They are often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed. Nowadays various shapes are made like triangles , rounds and squares. I made heart shaped scones.
Dry fruits like cherry , raisins , dates and cheese are also included in making scones.
I made these scones with cocoa powder and without using cherry.
This was my sisters suggestion to make a arrow to pierce the heart...........
