Granny Smith Apple Biscuits!!

Custom Keto Diet

What do you expect from a biscuit? That it’s light and fluffy and a perfect vehicle for other flavors like butter or jam? Me too, generally. But these biscuits are a horse of a different color. While they’re plenty tender, you wouldn’t describe them as fluffy and though they come with an amazing honey butter glaze, you don’t really have to augment them with a single thing as they’re already stuffed with tart Granny Apple flavor. These Granny Smith Apple Biscuits are so flavorful, they’re easy to make, and they’re a fun departure from your basic biscuit!

 

INGREDIENTS

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 Granny Smith apple, grated
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, chilled and cubed
1 cup buttermilk, chilled

FOR THE GLAZE:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt

 

PREPARATION

Field Dogs 300 x 600

Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and spices.
Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives, then work in the grated apple. Stir in buttermilk.
Dust dough with flour and turn out onto a floured surface. (Dough will be sticky, so flour generously!)
Knead dough until it’s easier to handle, then pat into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Fold short sides into the center, like you’re folding an envelope. Press dough back out into a rectangle, and repeat folding process 7 times.
Cut biscuits out with a circle cutter and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
While biscuits bake, make the glaze: Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in honey and salt.
Once biscuits are done, brush with honey glaze. Enjoy!
