A quick delicious homemade treat! This recipe was missing the baking powder amount so I added 1 tsp and it seem to work! I also added raisins in half of the dough. This recipe brought to you by the wife of the chef, I like to bake:) This recipe was found on Heavenly Housewife
4 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all purpose (plain) flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons/ 65g cold butter
80g pitted chopped dates
1/3 cup/ 90ml milk
Preaheat oven to 425F/220C.
Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix well and put aside. This will top the finished scones.
In food processor, combine butter with flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and salt. Empty this mixture into a large bowl.
In a separate small bowl. Whisk eggs and milk together. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of this mixture for glazing the scones.
Stir the rest of this mixture into the dry ingredients and knead on a well floured surface. Roll out dough and cut. I like my scones to be circular, so I am using a biscuit cutter, but I know that in America people are partial to triangular shapes, so whatever suits you. This dough should make 12 scones, but this may vary a bit.
