Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Scones

After being cooped up in the house all weekend I got to urge to bake some scones to go with my coffee. I didn't really have good scone-making fruit so I searched for a recipe for scones with brown sugar. I thought the warm, rich flavors would be perfect for a frigid winter morning. After doing some digging I found this recipe for Brown Sugar Cinnamon Scones from Kitchen Treaty. The changes I made to the recipe were to add chopped pecans at the end, vanilla bean bourbon paste instead of regular vanilla extract and substituted half of the AP flour with whole wheat flour. They could have stayed in the oven a bit longer but they were pretty tasty and I think it's a great go-to scone recipe when you don't have much in the pantry.[responsive]IMG_3113_2[/responsive]
