The answer is you mix the bacon , dates, and nuts together. You will have a total of 1 1/2 cups mixture. You add 1 cup of the mixture- bacon, dates and nuts into the flour. The remaining mixture is sprinkled over the scones. Hope this helps.

Is this a typo? It says mix 1 cup bacon into the flour, set the rest aside. But the recipe says only 1/2 cup bacon. Should it be 1 1/2 cups?

Absolutely LOVE this combination of flavors. I hope to make them soon!

These were amazing. Quick to make and so delicious. Was leary of the orange marmalade as it's strong but drizzled some on instead of brushing as that tended to lift the topping pieces and the drizzle was nice as it wasn't over the entire scone. So delicious, I ate..... shall we just say, too many. Never would have put the flavours together. Will definitely make again.

I did mix these the night before and kept them in the refrig. overnight, cooked them in the morning in 15 min. for company and everyone loved them. What a hit ! Delicious and the most moist scones we have ever eaten. Love the bacon and date flavors, the orange marmalade touch makes these very special.

Delicious and moist. These are easy to make- quick with no fuss,they even freeze well and can be reheated. I made them the second try with 1/2 Pillsbury whole wheat flour and 1/2 Pillsbury all purpose flour and they were still yummy! A keeper.

Excellent flavor, both with or without the glaze. Very rich & satisfying, great with coffee. I liked that this did not need a mixer, few prep dishes & with ingredients I usually buy/have. Next time I plan to try using skim milk (which I always have on hand) instead of the cream. I've frozen half of the baked scones since just 1 at a time is plenty.

Cut the butter into small pieces, then add to the flour. Makes it easier to mix into the flour to create a small crumb mixture.

You can make these the day before, mix, form into rounds, then hold in the refrigerator overnight.Take them out in the morning while the oven heats, then cook for warm homemade scones fresh out of the oven. Quick and easy.
