Posted in : Muffins on by : Daphne

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour4 tbs sugar, divided2 1/2 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp salt5 tbs cold butter2/3 cup chopped dates2 eggs, lightly beaten1/3 cup milk1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

In a bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in dates. Combine eggs and milk; stir into crumb mixture just until blended (dough will be soft).
Turn onto a lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, gently knead dough 10 times. Pat into a 9-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Using a floured knife, cut into six 3-in. squares; cut each square diagonally in half.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over scones. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack.
