Anyone that follows The Southern Lady Cooks blog or Facebook page knows I love biscuits and am always looking for new recipes.  Recently, I had some apples and decided to put them in biscuits. They turned out great. We enjoyed these with sorghum molasses and honey for a breakfast treat we all loved.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup apples, peeled and grated
1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used cheddar)
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.  Cut the butter into the flour until resembles crumbs.  Add egg, buttermilk mixing with a spoon.  Fold in grated apples and cheese.
Pour dough out onto a floured surface.  Pat to about 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick. (I just use my hands and pat the dough out.)  Cut with biscuit cutter into rounds. Place on sprayed baking sheet and bake in preheated 400 degree oven about 15 minutes until brown on top.  Makes about 12 to 15 biscuits depending on size of your cutter. (I used a juice glass for these because I wanted smaller biscuits).  Serve with your favorite jams, jellies, molasses or honey.  Enjoy!

  1. I sure like the recipes. I don’t cook all of them. I wished I was able to.

  2. Love these recipes! But I do have a question from anyone who may know, I live in the Denver area, I need to make high altitude adjustments and not sure where to find this info. I made the Sweet Potato Biskits and they were good but did not get light and flaky. I’m sure I needed to make the adjustment. Thanks1
