Grated apple lends these easy-to-make retro biscuits their tender texture. Choose a baking apple commonly used in pie for the fluffiest, moistest biscuits. Serve them warm alongside soup, stew, chili or a roast dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 cup grated cored peeled Cortland or Spartan apple about 1
  • 2 green onions minced

Method

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stir in Cheddar, apple and green onions. Using fork, stir in milk to form ragged dough.
