Cheddar Apple Biscuits

When you are preparing a brunch for family or for a light luncheon on the deck, try these biscuits. Really quite nice.

 

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped Granny Smith apple
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 tbsp. frozen butter, grated
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the apple, cheese, butter and pepper. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the milk and egg. Stir slowly to mix together until combined.

Transfer dough to a floured surface. Knead until it just comes together. Gently pat out into a 1 inch thick square.

With a floured knife, cut the dough into 16 pieces and set out on the baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart.

Bake 15-18 minutes until the bottoms are a golden brown. Serve these warm with butter. Anything else is up to your imagination.

Enjoy!
