Irish Scones


•    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
•    1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
•    1/4 cup unprocessed oat bran
•    1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
•    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
•    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
•    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
•    1/2 teaspoon salt
•    3 tablespoons smart balance margarine, cut into small pieces
•    2/3 cup chopped pitted dates
•    2/3 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
•    1 egg, lightly beaten
•    Vegetable cooking spray


1.    Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add dates; toss well. Add yogurt and egg, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened (dough will be sticky).
2.    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; with floured hands, knead lightly 3 to 4 times. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped.  Makes 10 scones.
