      I made 5 scones and used Splenda Brown and 1/4 cup of dated (chopped quite small). While I do prefer wedges or cut circles this was quicker that was a good thing today. The texture is light and tender, the taste is a delight (even with trimming the amount of dates). Thanks for this one Syd.

      Syd, thank you so much for sharing this treat with us. Seriously, the best scones I have tried here on food. What a treaure these are light, fluffy, tender and packed full of flavor, with a nice crunchy crust. The dates and candied ginger are perfect together. I only made 1/2 the recipe, I am now kicking myself. Used the 1/3 cup measure resulting in very pretty scones. I ended up with 4 large scones. They were lovely with butter but even better with fresh homemade mango jam. I have hidden the scones, they are all for me. I will be putting this recipe in my favorites for 2011.

      These were excellent. Very tender. I ended up with about 12 in my batch (I just eyeballed it) and liked the free-formed shape of the scones. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
