Whole Wheat Butter Scones

I took a basic traditional scone recipe and replaced all the white flour with whole wheat. We use the Montana Prairie gold wheat berries. 

I didn't use any white flour at all, I know a lot of recipes do half and half but I just wanted to use all whole wheat, and see how these would turn out.  These scones were good! They reminded me somewhat of cornbread because of using all wheat.  Hubby does not like cornbread so I was worried. He loved them, I think he had 3! :)

We drrrrrenched them in honey. Everytime I say drenched I roll my R' reminds me of Mrs. Margaret Harris in Anne of Avonlea, and I always laugh to myself. ;)
