Apple Pie Biscuits

Fall is my favorite time of year. This season brings with it so many of my favorite things, like: the smell of cinnamon, perfectly crisp apples and the chillier, darker evenings to enjoy a warm treat. Below is a recipe I’m sharing for just the occasion: apple pie biscuits.

Recipe:

Biscuit
4 C almond meal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 C all natural, unsalted butter (at room temperature)
pinch of sea salt
4 eggs
4 tsp maple sugar
pinch of cinnamon

Filling
3 Apples (peeled and sliced thin)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp all natural butter, unsalted butter

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a stand mixer (or bowl and whisk for more of a workout) whisk almond meal, baking soda and sea salt until evenly blended (get rid of any chunks that might exist in your almond meal) .
  • Whisk together eggs in a separate bowl
  • Slowly add eggs into the dry ingredients until fully incorporated
  • Add in the 1/2 C of all natural butter cut into small cubes and mix until most of the the butter is blended
  • Using a 1/4 C measuring cup, portion out the biscuits, placing them on a parchment lined cookie sheet (when you are handling the dough you need to work quickly because you do not want the butter to melt)
  • Pop the biscuits into the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the biscuits are baking, melt the butter in a skillet
  • Add in 2 tsp of maple sugar into the melted butter
  • Add in apple slices to the melted butter
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and remaining 2 tsp of maple sugar
  • Stir the apples until they are well coated and begin to soften (~5 minutes)
  • Set the apples aside until biscuits are done
  • When the biscuits are done in the oven, place the biscuits on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes until they are cool enough to handle
  • Slice the biscuits with a cerated knife 3/4 of the way through and place the precooked apple slices inside
