    LOVE SCONE AND BAKE THEM OFTEN. THESE WERE VERY GOOD. GRATED WHITE CHOC0LATE AND ADDED CHOPPED PECANS. YUMMY.

    Easy!

    Colleen Daniels from KLAMATH FALLS, OR

    Everyone likes these! I tried semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the dates and it turned out great, like a mocha scone! Make a glaze (vanilla or chocolate) and it turns it into a real treat, especially for the kids.

    Nescafe-Date Scones

    N. Codde from PLACERVILLE, CA

    My family thoroughly enjoys scones and this recipe was a big hit. My husband doesn't even like or drink coffee and he likes this recipe. For a change I've tried different fruits, not adding the coffee and using vanilla paste and each time the result was wonderful. The base recipe is great and easy to change for a variety.

    okay but I've had better

    LINDEN STACIOKAS from OLGA, WA

    These were a bit dry and I didn't care for coffee/date mix. The second time I made them, I left out the coffee and added the same amount of rum and liked them better---rum seemed to go better with the dates.

    I made these last night. They were very good and so light. I mix them in my food processor and it doesn't take but a few seconds.

    a little dry

    Carine Nadel from LAGUNA HILLS, CA

    I have to admit, I don't make scones much, so maybe I over mixed, but these were a little dry, even w/ the dates. Tasty, but dry
