Heart-Shaped Cherry Scones

1 c dried sour cherries
1 c warm water
1 c flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 c chilled butter -- cut in bits
1 large egg yolk
3/4 c buttermilk

Soak cherries in warm water. Let stand until softened, 1 hour. Drain and discard liquid.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together all-purpose flour, wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender cut butter into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form.

Mix together egg yolk and buttermilk. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add egg mixture and cherries all at once to well, tossing with a fork until a soft dough forms.

On a floured surface, knead dough 10 times. Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough to a 1 in. thickness.

Using a floured 3 in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out scones. Gather trimmings, roll dough to a 1 in. thickness, and cut out more scones. Place scones, 1 in. apart, on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake until golden, 18 to 20 min. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
