Cinnamon Love Scones

As Valentines day approaches, my husband tends to find that a lot of his food is heart shaped. He knows it is just one small way I show my love for him, and he thinks it is cute. I think it helps set the mood. 
Romantic Tip: Make a breakfast or dessert with heart shapes. It reminds your partner of your love for them. It doesn't take much effort. Try it, I bet my bottom dollar you get a big smile. 
So this morning he woke up to some heart shaped scones that weren't only cute, they were to die for. Make these for your man. You won't be sorry. 

Cinnamon Love Scones with cinnamon drizzle
adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod

Yield: Makes 3 heart shaped scones or 4 regular shaped scones.

1 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup cinnamon chips (I use Hershey's cinnamon chips)
1/2 cup heavy cream

For the cinnamon drizzle:
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1/4 Cinnamon chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
Prepare your baking dish(s) by spraying generously with cooking spray. You can also line them with parchment paper, but I was using my heart baking dishes so I used Pam.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. 
Add cold cut up butter. Quickly cut in using a pastry tool or you can do a quick whisk in the mixer, but only for a few seconds. Mix until mixture resembles coarse meal with a few large butter lumps. 
Stir in the cinnamon chips. 
Pour in vanilla and heavy cream over the ingredients and stir with a spatula until dough begins to form. Don't over mix.
Press your dough into prepared baking dish(es). If you don't have heart shaped dishes, you can shape them with your hands and place them on a baking sheet. 
Bake scones for 12-15 minutes, or until scones are light brown. 
Cool scones on a wire cooling rack and prepare the cinnamon glaze.

Place cinnamon chips and heavy whipping cream in a microwave safe dish. Microwave for 3 minutes at 50% power. Stir vigorously until the chips are melted and a smooth glaze forms. 
Drizzle glaze over cooled scones and serve!
