  • Servings: 12-15
  • Preparation Time: 20


  • 3 cups Bread Flour
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tlb Baking Powder
  • 2 cups Cream
  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1 cup Chopped Dates
  • *optional chopped toasted hazelnuts or chocolate


  • * Mix all the dry ingredients together to combine them
  • * Add the Pecans and Dates
  • * Add the cream and mix until just combined
  • * Roll the dough into a log - flatten the top - cut in triangles.
  • * Brush with cream and sprinkle with sanding sugar
  • * Can top with chopped toasted hazelnuts or chocolate.
  • * Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes
  • The first time I made this I didn't roll out the dough long enough and only cut 11 triangles. They wound up being to big.
  • Another idea is to substitute Pecans and Dates for 1 cup chopped sour cherries and 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger. For savory scones, cut the sugar in half.
