These are really delicious. I replaced 1/2 a cup of white flour with whole wheat flour and used 1/4 cup (-1 tbs) of a healthier margarine and 1/4 cup (+1 tbs) of unsweetened applesauce. The sugar became Splenda, I used a tsp of pumpkin pie spice . These biscuits came out perfect. They are tall and moist with marvelous texture and taste that is not to sweet. The pecans are an ideal addition. With canned pumpkin always available these will be a welcome treat all year round.
