Cinnamon Date Sunflower Seed Buns

This is my cheese scone recipe adapted to a different purpose.

Scones - preheat to 425F

1 1/4 cup flour
1 3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4+ cup butter
4 tbsp sugar
1/3-1/2 cup milk

Mix flour, baking soda and salt, then cut butter in with pastry cutter. Mix in sugar. Add half the milk and use a fork to mix into a dough. Add more milk till it can form a ball. Cover with plastic and put in the fridge for few minutes while I get the filling ready. 

1/4 cup finely chopped dates
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soft butter

Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Spread soft butter over all. Sprinkle cinnamon over all. Sprinkle brown sugar over everything. Sprinkle the dates and sunflower seeds evenly. Carefully roll up. Slice in 1 inch pieces and bake 13 minutes. 

They're really good, I'll make these again but I'll put extra brown sugar on them before baking. A dozen are almost gone in just a few hours.
