Not to toot my own horn but…I did good. Oh yeah, these bad boys are probably among the favorite things I have made and I have a feeling that my mom will be asking for them again and again. What did I make, you ask?

Cinnamon Scones!

Oh yes, they are in the shape of hearts. How clever of me…or Bon Appetit magazine.

Perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat.

I adapted the recipe from this one on the Bon Appetit website, by adding cinnamon. Here it is!


  • 2cupsall purpose flour
  • 1/3cupsugar
  • 2teaspoonsbaking powder
  • 1/2teaspoonsalt
  • 5tablespoonschilled unsalted butter, cut  into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon (or a few good shakes of the jar)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in large bowl.
  • Add butter; rub in with fingertips until  mixture resembles fine meal.
  • Gradually add 1 cup cream, mixing until dough comes  together.
  • Turn dough out onto sheet of foil; pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Using  3-inch heart-shaped or round cookie cutter, cut out scones. Gather scraps; pat  to 1/2-inch thickness and cut out additional scones.
  • Transfer to baking sheet. Bake  scones until brown, about 18 minutes.
  • Enjoy slightly warm or at room temperature!

I think I’ll have to try a savoury scone next. I have a few in mind…
