Starbucks' date scones

Yield: 12 scones

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup All-purpose flour
½ cup Whole wheat flour
¼ cup Bran
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
¼ cup Brown sugar
½ cup Unsalted, chilled butter
1 Egg
⅔ cup Buttermilk
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.
