Starbucks Date Scones

Starbucks Date Scones

Yield: 12 servings


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup bran
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled
1 egg
2/3 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup chopped dates

Combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, the bran, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar. Cut in the butter (or combine in a food processor, just until crumbly). Add the egg, buttermilk and dates; do not over-mix. (If the dough seems too sticky to work with, add a couple more tablespoons flour). 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 F oven about 25 minutes. Cool on a rack.
