Heart-Shaped Cheese Scones

"When you set out a plate of these golden scones flecked with bits of cheddar cheese, everyone will know you've put your heart into your baking," assures Edna Hoffman of Hebron, Indiana. "They're a nice alternative to biscuits."

    Made these put I patted the dough into a circle and cut into 8 wedges. Baked about 15mins. My 13 year daughter is in heaven. She had 2 already!

    I've been making these scones for years. They are easy to make and taste great. My kids all enjoy them. Sometimes I just pat the dough into a circle and make wedges.
