Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal; stir in dates and orange peel.
Make a well in the center of the butter-flour mixture; add buttermilk all at once.
Stir mixture with a fork until dough cleans the sides of the bowl.
With your hands, gather dough into a ball; turn out onto a lightly floured board.
Roll or pat into a 1/2-inch-thick circle.
Using a 2 1/2-inch heart (or other shape) cutter, cut into individual scones.
Place 1 1/2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
Brush tops of scones with cream; sprinkle lightly with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake in a 425° oven for 12 minutes or until tops are lightly browned.
