Method

Preheat oven to 400F radiant, or 370F convection.

Sift flour and cocoa, then combine with sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Grate frozen butter into flour mix and combine with a pastry cutter until medium meal stage.

In a separate bowl, mix together egg, cream and vanilla. Pour into flour and butter mix and combine gently with a spatula. Add in candied pecans.

Gently press dough on a floured surface by hand. Form either a long roll to cut biscuit shapes from, or a flat circle to cut wedges. Place on a greased baking pan, and bake at 400F for 20-22 mins radiant, or 370F for 15-17 minutes convection

Remove to wire rack from oven and apply salted caramel while still warm. Allow to cool five minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
