Recipe by Pamela Thibodeaux

2 cups Sonora 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.

The last two orders were incorrect. First order we ordered 3, 5lb All Purpose flower we got 2 1/2lb instead. We were charged the higher price. Second ordered we ordered 6, 5lb All Purpose flower and we got 6, 2 1/2lb instead.We were charged the higher price again. We would love a response to this problem. [****] Doyce

These make the best hummus.

Canned chickpeas just don’t measure up. These, plus Soom Tahini, plus a proprietary blend of citrus juice 🍋, olive oil, diced chilis 🌶 and spices, make the best hummus ever. And don’t even get me started on couscous salad. Happy and satisfied customer. Will absolutely order again.

I’m enjoying using your flours again especially to make breads of Italian and French parameters and types of European flours, learning curves!

Wow! I have every wheat grain Barton offers and several not offered but this is my favorite! This has a beautiful nutty taste unique to it. I wish berries were available!!! Outstanding and well worth your trying it.
