  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates

  2. Sift flour and allspice together into a large bowl. Add butter and rub in, using fingertips. Stir in dates and sugar.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add combined milk and egg all at once, reserving about a teaspoon for glazing.
  4. Turn mixture onto a lightly floured surface. Press or roll out lightly until about 3cm thick.
  5. Using a 4cm floured cutter, cut into rounds. Place close together on tray. Brush with reserved milk mixture. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until scones sound hollow when tapped. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm with butter.
