Diamond Jubilee Heart-Shaped Scones

I don't bake often but sometimes I get a little hankering for it. As we're having a street party today, I thought I'd make up a batch of heart-shaped scones. Whether you are a scone-to-rhyme-with-gone or a scone-to-rhyme-with-stone person (I'm the former, if you were wondering), you can't deny that the teatime treats are pretty well ingrained in our national heritage. Perfect for the Jubilee celebrations!

You will need:
55g butter
450g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
9 tablespoon caster sugar
250ml milk

1. Preheat the oven to 220c/ 425f/ Gas Mark 7
2. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl
3. Add the butter and rub it in until you have a breadcrumb-like mixture (At this point I tipped the mixture out for ease)
4. Stir in the sugar

5. Stir in enough milk to create a soft dough

6. Gently roll the dough out onto a floured surface

7. Cut out the scones with a (round or shaped- you decide!) cutter

Don't eat them yet!

8. Place on a greased baking tray

9. Bake for around 10 minutes. Remember to keep an eye on them so you don't overdo them!

10. Leave to cool and then serve!
(I chose a vintage 1950s cake stand that my mum bought me for my birthday a couple of years ago)

Yum yum!
