Why I Love This Recipe

Fluffy biscuits studded with fresh apples that are just the right amount of sweet

Ingredients You'll Need

4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour, plus more for dusting the surface
1 tablespoon Baking Powder, Plus 1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 cup Cold Butter
1/2 cup Grated Apple
1 cup Buttermilk, Chilled

For the Glaze:
3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Chilled
3 tablespoons Honey
pinch of Salt


Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and apple pie spices

Cut in the butter and grated apple using a pastry cutter OR a fork OR your hands. Method is a preference thing. You’ll know it’s good when coarse crumbs have formed and if you grab up a fistful it sticks together pretty well

Gently stir in the buttermilk

Generously flour a clean work surface and keep your flour nearby to dust your hands and the dough regularly

Scatter flour over the dough in the bowl — it will be obnoxiously wet and sticky! Just do your best and make sure to incorporate any dry bits from the bottom of the bowl into the sticky dough mess

Turn the dough out onto your prepared surface, flour your hands, and knead it a few times. It will get easier to work with

Pat it out into a kind of oblong oval shape that’s about an inch thick. Fold the short sides toward the middle, sort of like you’re folding an envelope. This is what gives your finished biscuits their “layered” texture. Smack the folded dough down and press it back out into the oval shape. Repeat this process a total of 7 times

Cut the biscuits into 3- to 4-inch circles and place them on an ungreased baking sheet or 2 round cake pans

Bake for 20 minutes, while the biscuits bake, make the honey butter glaze. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and salt

When the biscuits come out of the oven brush them with the honey butter glaze

Pairs Well With

A nice scoop of ice cream to make it sweet or a cool glass of milk
