These Homemade Apple Biscuits are incredibly fluffy, flaky, and flavorful! Perfect for the Fall season! Serve with Apple Butter, honey, or on its own for a mouthwatering treat!
To me, there is nothing better than a good biscuit! I LOVE to dip mine in honey or homemade jam! Such a tasty breakfast or side dish option, right?!
Over the years, my most favorite biscuits were the ones from Cracker Barrel. Have you tried those? Theirs are so flaky, have a tasty butter flavoring to them, and are quite incredible!
To be honest, I never realized how simple biscuits were to make until I tried my hand at preparing them myself. Yes, I had SEVERAL fails before I perfected them, but the final recipe was a success! As in, perhaps better than Cracker Barrel!! Check out that recipe HERE!!
A few weekends ago, my hubby had planned on making a batch of our flaky buttermilk biscuits! We like to prepare a batch and freeze the dough to pull out when needed!
As he was grabbing the needed ingredients, he was brainstorming fun varieties and decided to make an apple version.
I was originally hesitant, however, I was cautiously open to the idea. The spices can be a great addition, but grated apple? In my biscuit? I wasn’t quite sold!
He set out to work and in no time, had these ready for the oven! Omgosh, they not only looked incredible, but they smelled Heavenly.
The biscuits baked into perfection and had a slightly golden color and hint of Fall flavor throughout!
The apple and spices are not overpowering, in fact, it is quite subtle and adds a nice compliment to the fluffy biscuit!
Overall, my hubby outdid himself with these! Definitely my favorite and something I plan to enjoy year round!
Stay tuned for the Smoked Apple Butter we served ours with! Here is a slow cooker version too, https://thecookinchicks.com/slow-cooker-apple-butter/
