Cheddar Apple Biscuits
I found this in my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook! They are very tasty! I’ve modified it just a bit. Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup Bisquick
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 small or medium baking apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1/3 cup warm water
- melted margarine or butter
- mixture of cinnamon and sugar to roll the uncooked dough in. Can also add chopped walnuts or pecans
In a bowl, mix the Bisquick, cheese, and apples. Make a well in the mixture and pour the 3/4 cup water. Mix until a soft ball forms. Separate dough into 18 balls. Roll in melted butter and then in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
I have made this recipe with only the cheese; in that instance I omitted the cinnamon and sugar mixture, but brushed melted butter on top of each biscuit before baking. Scott and I agreed that the next time we make it with the apples, we will use LESS cinnamon and sugar. I think I will use the brush-the-butter-on-top technique and then sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top. The cinnamon and sugar sort of overpowered the biscuit the other way and it was hard to taste the apples and cheese. I could see these as an after-school snack or a special Christmas breakfast treat.
