 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   c            All-purpose flour
      1/2   c            Whole-wheat flour
      1/4   c            Bran
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Salt
    2       ts           Cinnamon
      1/4   c            Brown sugar
      1/2   c            Butter, unsalted -- chilled
    1                    Egg
      2/3   c            Buttermilk
      2/3   c            Chopped dates
 
   Combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, the
   bran, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and brown
   sugar. Cut in the butter. (Or combine in a food
   processor, just until crumbly.) Add the egg,
   buttermilk and dates; do not overmix.  (If the dough
   seems too sticky to work with add a couple more
   tablespoons flour.) Shape the dough into a rectangle
   about 1 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into 12
   triangles. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet in a
   preheated 350-degree oven about 25 minutes. Cool on a
   rack.
