Fruit, Nut, and Chocolate Scones

These were super super good. Highly recommended!! I ate so many of these that I didn't have much appetite for dinner (oops)!

1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup cold butter
1/3 cup chopped dates
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup soymilk

Mix flours, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl until well combined. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the fruit, nuts, and chocolate. Add the milk gradually, until the mixture comes together to form a slightly sticky dough. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until golden.

Alternatively, after forming the dough, press it out into a circle, about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8-10 wedges. Brush each edge with milk or a little melted butter and dust with cinnamon and sugar. Bake until golden.
