   Recipe by: Betty Crocker’s Homemade Quick Breads
        Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the margarine into the flour, sugar,
   baking powder, cinnamon and salt with a pastry blender in a large bowl
   until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the oats, apple and dates.
   Stir in the egg and just enough half and half so that the dough leaves the
   side of the bowl and forms a ball. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured
   surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 10 times. Pat or roll
   into an 8-inch circle on an ungreased cookie sheet. Cut into 8 wedges, but
   do not separate. Brush with half and half and sprinkle with sugar, if
   desired.  Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately
   remove from the cookie sheet; carefully separate the wedges. Serve warm.
