Heartfelt Pancakes

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. sugar (optional)
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 1 tbsp. milk (or buttermilk)
  • 4 tbsp. butter or margarine

 

Directions

Preheat griddle over moderate heat while you mix batter. Sift (with a real sifter, if possible) flour, salt, sugar and baking powder into a bowl. Combine egg, milk, and butter in a separate bowl and slowly stir into dry ingredients. Mix well so lumps won't gum up the process. When a drop of cold water will dance on the griddle, begin cooking. To make a "pen," funnel the batter into a squeeze bottle with a hole in the cap, such as a clean chocolate syrup container. On the griddle, shape the hearts one lobe at a time. They're really just a V shape, which spreads out into a heart on the griddle. You can also write secret messages or your child's initials. Top with fresh berries and maple syrup.


Cranberry Heart Scones

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tbsp. margarine
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk

 

Directions

  1. Combine the 4 four ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Blend in the margarine with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the zest and cranberries. In another bowl, beat the eggs well and then stir the milk into them.
  2. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and pour the wet ingredients into it. Stir just until blended. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead a few times. Pat the dough to a 1-inch thickness. Use a butter knife to cut heart shapes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 8 scones.

Toppings

Quick Strawberry Jam Empty a 16-ounce package of unsweetened frozen strawberries into a glass bowl. Microwave on medium until the berries are hot and soft (about 12 minutes). Stir in a 3-ounce package of strawberry Jell-O.

Fruit Butter Blend 2 parts softened butter and 1 part strawberry, raspberry, or apricot jam.

Flavored Cream Cheese Smooth 4 ounces of cream cheese with a wooden spoon. (Add a tablespoon of yogurt for a creamier consistency.) Fold in a few fresh or defrosted strawberries or raspberries.
