Made these to share with my son & his wife, & I'll certainly be making the recipe again, 'cause these scones are wonderfully delicious! As usual when a recipe calls for a citrus zest, I was generous with the amount! Also used the very moist large Medjool dates that I almost always have around! A very nice keeper of a recipe, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & reviewed in Make My Recipe tag]
