      Made these with the soft, chewy flavorful Medjool dates & rolled the dough out enough so that I'd be pretty sure to get at least a dozen scones (actually got 14!), & used a cutter that was slightly less than 2" in diameter! We had some very tasty scones & a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

      I enjoyed these scones. I didn't have dates so used dried apricots in their place which worked very well.. The use of wholewheat is grand. The recipe doesn't ask of any levening but I added a tsp of baking powder and think they were the better for it. Instead of icing sugar I used Splenda. A bit more milk was needed to get all of the flour moistened, I'd say a used 2-3 tbsp more. Oh, and 1/8 tsp of salt. The level of sweet worked very well for me but if if your family has a real sweet tooth you might want to use more . I got 7 scones and a dough nibble using a 2 1/2" round cutter (I'm not sure how big 5 cm is). Very nice with a coffee or tea. The cinnamon Splenda I sprinkled on top added a nice touch.
