Inspiring people to create every day recipes
Everyone once in awhile in the fall, I get a craving for mulled cider. I'll purchase a half gallon of Delicious Orchards apple cider and make a batch or two. If there's any leftover cider, I'll freezer for another time.
However, this time I felt like making apple cider biscuits. Again, it's one of those recipes that I found years ago, hand wrote it and have no recollection of where I found it. Other than 3/4 cup of cider, the other ingredients are pantry staples. These biscuits are quick and easy to make. They would go great with roast chicken, roast pork or even Thanksgiving dinner.
Apple Cider Biscuits
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, cut into chunks
¾ cup apple cider
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. With pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.*
3. Stir in cider into flour mixture just until a soft dough forms that leaves the sides of the bowl.**
4. Turn dough out onto lightly flour surface. Knead into a ball and pat out to 1/2” thickness. Cut into round circles using a biscuit cutter.
5. Place biscuits 1” apart on ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 12-15 minutes or until brown. Cool on rack.
*Next time instead of using a pastry blender, I’m going to use my Cuisinart to get a finer crumb.
**After I prepared the dough, I put it in the refrigerator to chill it again before cutting the biscuits and baking.
