white chocolate and cranberry scones.

I love breakfast. 

I love pink.

I love love.

one day a year all my favorite things collide: valentine's day.

{breakfast + pink + love = heart shaped scones.}

white chocolate chip and cranberry scones.  

the goodies:
- 3 c. flour
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1.5 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 lb butter, cold
- 2/3 c. fresh cranberries
- 1/3 c. white chocolate, chopped or chips
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 c. whipping cream + 2 tbsp. 

the fun part:
1.) preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.) mix the dry ingredients in food processor. add the cut up butter, and pulse.
3.) transfer flour/butter mixture into a bowl and add cranberries and white chocolate.
4.) combine eggs and cream in a separate bowl.
5.) make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the cream/egg mixture in. stir slightly, but do not overmix.  it will be shaggy.
6.) turn out the dough on a floured surface. gather the dough, pile it up and use the heel of your hand to smear it away from you. fold it together gently and smear again. continue until it becomes cohesive, but do no overwork.
7.) pat the dough into a circle, brush with remaining whipping cream, and strategically cut out heart shaped scones with cookie cutter.  (ps, if you're hoping to make these on any day other than february 14th, you can cut the circle into 8 wedges instead.)
8.) transfer to baking sheet and baking for 15-20 minutes.
