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]
