Delicious Date Scones

Comment on this recipe

I serve these scones for our relatives during the holidays. I also try to keep a set of the dry ingredient mixture in a glass jar for quicker prep time.

Ingredients

Scone Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats, uncooked
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup shredded coconut, optional
Topping Ingredients:
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon melted butter

Instructions

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Stir in beaten egg and milk with fork until dough is moist and holds together. Add coconut, if desired. Knead dough with lightly floured hands on a floured surface, forming a 6- to 8-inch circle that is 1/2 inch deep. Sprinkle dates evenly over circle and gently press them into dough. Slice dough into 8 triangular wedges. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet and transfer scones onto it, using a spatula. Bake about 15 minutes until light brown. Remove from heat. Mix topping ingredients and brush on scones. Enjoy!
