Original recipe yields 18 scones

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Sift together wheat and all-purpose flours, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl. Rub butter into dry ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in dates and chocolate chips. Mix in the milk, just until blended and form dough into a ball.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Roll into a circle about 1/2 inch thick. Dip a round cookie cutter into flour (to prevent sticking) then cut out round scones. Place scones on a greased baking sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until risen and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

These turned out pretty dry. I think next time I will use 2-2 1/2C flour and use the rest for rolling and cutting out the dough. I think using 1/2 C butter and adding 1 tsp. vanilla might be better as well :)

these scones were amazing! i followed the previous poster's advice and used 1/2 cup butter and 1 tsp vanilla. i used dried blueberries instead of dates, and added 3/4 cup walnuts, as well as the chocolate chips. by accident i doubled the cinnamon but it turned out perfect! super soft and hearty but sweet. more like a breakfast cookie. we will definitely make these again!

not bad... a little on the bland side but that could have been me..... added a little extra butter and fresh out of the oven right now.... pretty moist... i did add also a touch more milk, figuring since you need to kneed it on a floured surface it could get dry..... i will save this for sure and be making it.... pictures to follow....
