Yield: 12 scones
|1½ cup||All-purpose flour|
|½ cup||Whole wheat flour|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|¼ cup||Brown sugar|
|½ cup||Unsalted, chilled butter|
|⅔ cup||Chopped dates|
1. Combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, the bran, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
2. Cut in the butter. (Or combine in a food processor, just until crumbly.)
3. Add the egg, buttermilk and dates; do not overmix. (If the dough seems too sticky to work with add a couple more tablespoons flour.) 4. Shape the dough into a rectangle about 1-inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into 12 triangles. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet in a preheated 350-degree oven about 25 minutes. Cool on a rack.
