Serves 12-15 | Prep Time 20 | Cook 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 in the kitchen aide with the paddle 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.
