Whole Wheat Date Scones

March 8, 2009 at 1:08 pm (Counter Culture) (, , , , , , )



1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

6 tbsp margarine or butter

1/2 cup chopped dates

1/2 cup milk

2 eggs


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease cookie sheet.  In medium bowl, combine flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well.  Using pastry blender or fork, cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in dates.  In small bowl, combine milk and eggs; reserve 2 tbsp.  Add remaining egg mixture all at once, stirring just until moistened.

On floured surface, gently knead dough to make a smooth ball.  Place on greased cookie sheet.  With floured hands, press dough into 8-inch-circle.  Cut into 8 wedges; do not separate.  Brush with reserved egg mixture.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut into wedges; serve warm.

    Had to search websters-online-dictionary for this, now that I know what a date is (daddel in Norwegian) I’ll be sure to try it out! If you get dates in Norway this time a year, that is.. I hope you do!
    In Christ,
