Instructions Checklist

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in preheated oven until risen and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

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!

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:) Read More

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....

Delicious! I did added some more butter and milk and they were just moist enough! I like that they were not overboard sugary too. Read More

I agree with a few other reviewers; too much flour and not enough butter. Just so so. Read More

Hearty and wholesome. I did not have dates but instead substituted with what I did have: blueberries (1/4 cup) cranberries (probably two tablespoons!) and chocolate chips (1/2 cup). They taste great not too sweet had them with homemade whipped cream sweetened with honey. Delicious! Read More
