Brown Sugar Pecan Shortcakes with Macerated Stone Fruit and Cream

Recipe by Pamela Thibodeaux

2 cups Sonora Whole Wheat flour or Mediterranean Whole Wheat flour
4 T dark brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 C (1 stick) cold butter cut into small cubes
1 large egg
1/2 C buttermilk
1/2 C pecan pieces (optional)

To top:
Melted butter
Brown sugar
A few Stone fruit, sliced
Macerated in sugar and lemon juice.
(I used a peach preserve)
1 cup heavy cream
2 T powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
Whip to soft peaks
Yields: 4-6 servings


Preheat oven 375F. Combine all the dry except pecans. Cut in your cold butter until you get pea-size pieces. Add your pecans (optional). Whisk your egg and buttermilk together then fold it into your dry ingredients. Gently fold with a spatula until it comes to a shaggy dough, then pour out onto a work surface. Lightly dust your surface with flour and very lightly roll the ball until it all comes together. Using more flour if needed, roll out to desired thickness (I did 1 in rounds).
Place rounds onto a lined baking sheet. Chill for 15min. Brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle brown sugar or turbinado sugar. Bake for 16-20min depending on your oven and rotating at the half-mark.

Excellent Einkorn Berries & Great Customer Service!

We live locally in Austin and wanted to pick up some Einkorn berries (we make sourdough Einkorn bread and love it) and customer service was quick to reply and get my order ready for pickup! Very friendly and helpful. Excellent wheat berries without hulls (we’ve had an issue buying from other companies where the hills were still intact on a lot of the berries. We love Barton Springs Mill!

Nice surprise

The Bloody Butcher corn meal I purchased arrived neatly packaged and ready to use. It mixed well with my corn bread recipe and it turned out smooth, rich texture and delicious. I'd definitely buy it again.

Love white wheat berries!

Loving the new Big Country white wheat berries from Barton Springs Mills! It has been 20+ yrs since I had access to and used white wheat for baking, I had forgotten the beauty of the flour. Thank you!

Beautiful Grain!!

Besides being beautiful, my sourdough starter couldn’t be happier. Have already made bread, and it is super complex and smells like toasty heaven. The best part is the heritage and organic stewardship, which we all need more of in our current mono-culture world. Thanks Barton Springs for all your hard work on this one!!
