Heart Scones

Welcome to Red Couch Recipes where love is in the air.  You can easily make these heart scones in a jiffy and serve up some love to those you love.

I made homemade pizza on Friday night.  Almost always I double the pizza dough so that I have some leftover dough to make scones.  This is the recipe that I use for pizza dough

Heart-Shaped Pizzas

 Sometimes, I add a little olive oil to the dough.  I ususally make the pizza dough with a mixture of fifty percent white flour and fifty percent whole wheat flour  For the scones, roll out the dough and cut them out.  I usually roll the dough out to a little less than one-half inch.  Of course, you could also use some frozen dough.

These are grilled scones or pan-fried scones like my mother used to make back in Wisconsin when I was a child.  Here in the west they deep fry scones, but I always have loved pan fried scones.  I use my panini grill to grill them.  This was the grill that my husband thought I would never use!  I place the heart dough, with a little bit of olive oil or butter on it, then I allow it to cook a few minutes before I bring down the cover. 

Serve the scones with some butter and perhaps a little jam and you are ready for a lovelyValentine's Day treat.
