    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line a 12 x 18" (30 x 45 cm) baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Place the butter, both flours, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda into the bowl of a food processor (or use a pastry blender). Process until the mixture is very fine. Transfer to a large bowl and add the pecans and dates. Pour the cream and vanilla over the top. Mix with a fork until a crumbly dough forms.
    3. 3
      Turn onto a work surface. Press the mixture together very lightly - it should be fairly dry. Cut into twelve 2 1/2" rounds (7 cm) or eighteen 1 1/2" rounds (4 cm). Place on the prepared pan. Brush with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
    4. 4
      Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Serve warm. Best served the day they are made.

      WOW!!! These are wickedly delicious! I am used to a more "rustic" type of scone and usually bake with more healthy ingredients in mind; but everyone deserves a special treat now and again and this sure is one!!! I picked this as my 1st recipe choice for the Zarr World Tour 3 as a celebration of my "trip". I adore dates and pecans and finding them in one of my favorite things to make was a fantastic plus. I do not have cake flour in my pantry so I used Cake Flour Substitute to make a sub. I also replaced the table cream with half & half (I figured it was close enough). This makes a lovely scone, melt in your mouth dreamy goodness - I loved them!! *** I did get 27 HUGE (I mean HUGE) scones from the suggested something might be off a bit there in the nutrition facts (???) or maybe I'm whats off (???) No worries...this is a fabulous recipe... I hope to pull it out for many special times to come - Thank You Annacia!!!

      These scones are wonderful! I got lazy and whirled the pecans and dates in the food processor with everything else - it saved me a bunch of time and it turned out great. Also, when forming the scones I found it was easier to just pack dough into the cookie cutter, then ease it out onto the baking sheet. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to a T. The scones turned out moist, tender and absolutely delicious! Thanks Annacia!
