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.
4 C almond meal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 C all natural, unsalted butter (at room temperature)
pinch of sea salt
4 tsp maple sugar
pinch of cinnamon
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
In no time, your kitchen will begin to smell just like a wonderful fall day and you’ll have hand-held apple pies to enjoy!
