Tuesdays With Dorie – Whole Wheat Cinnamon Pecan Scones

by Jessica on July 19, 2011

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Pecan Scones

Another day, another scone! If you haven’t already noticed, I altered this week’s TWD recipe once again. Chestnut flour is impossible to find around these parts. Absolutely impossible. I even drove the 40 miles down to the closest Whole Foods and couldn’t get my hands on any.

Since I was unable to locate some, I equally subbed whole wheat flour and added in 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon and a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. And as soon as I opened that oven door, I was transported about three months ahead into Fall. The entire house smelled of cinnamony goodness and those little scones never had a chance. Within a few minutes, I had devoured two!

I love fall baking so your variation sounds excellent. I used coconut flour and it was pretty good.

Good call on the whole wheat flour substitution, but kudos for trying to get your hands on chestnut flour!

Great sub, using the ww flour. I guess that CN flour is real hard to find! They look good!

I love your subs., chestnut flour is too gourmet to be found in my smallish UT town. But I do love pecans and cinnamon.

Great chestnut flour substitute, your scones look perfect! I was bit sconed out after last week, but I’ll try using whole wheat flour/cinnamon when the craving hits. 🙂

These remind me of the scones I just blogged about. They look so comforting and delicious.
