Baking Love....

You're like "what does the pig stuff have to do with baking?" and it doesn't, really, but it is a nice mug, hmmmmm? CanNOT have too many pigs, oh noooooo....

Me and the wife were in Boston one day and saw the heart cookie cutter and, well, it gets a lot of use. I loooove baking and loooove baking scones. I have been debating sharing my scone recipe with you. I have my secrets. This is like, the secret every MAN should have: how to score chicks through scones! Because, OH YES, it was through these scones that I won the heart of the wife.....and win it again all the time....

well, alright.

Gary's scones
-preheat oven to 400
-in large mixing bowl, put in 8 tbs margerine, microwave 27 seconds
-add large egg, STIR, add 1/2 cup yogurt--I use soy yogurt--stir some more!
-dump in 2 cups flour--if it seems sticky, you may add more flour
-stir in 1/3 cup sugar
-stir in 1 1/4 teas. baking powder, STIR!
-add dried cranberries or raisens or nuts or all of that!

Turn mix onto floured counter, knead like bread. You may have to add flour if its sticky. Roll out flat nearly an inch thick and cut into wedges or use a heart cookie cutter.....lay scones onto cookie sheet and bake 9-10 minutes. Check at 9 minutes for golden edges, they will start to burn easily, careful!

I can adapt this to our wheat free by using almond flour or coconut flour. Thanks for giving it up and sharing the recipe.

I love my heart-shaped cutter. Four of them together (pointy-ends, that is) make a super-cute pie crust topping.
I might have to try it with scones now!
