Starbucks' Date Scones

Serving Size: 12

Ingredients:

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 1% buttermilk
2/3 cup dates

Cooking Directions:

Combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, bran, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar. Cut in the butter.
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 2 inches 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.
This recipe yields 12 scones.
