Cheddar Apple Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup grated apple
1/2 cup grated shape cheddar
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
Mix all dry ingredients together.
Using a pastry knife, cut the COLD butter into the flour until it looks like course meal. Stir in the apple and all but 3 tbsp. of the cheese.
Add the milk and just barely combine the ingredients by tossing it gently with a fork. The less you handle the dough the more tender it will be.
Roll out to 1/2 inch and cut into circles, squares, whatever shaped you'd like. Top each biscuit with a sprinkling of the remaining cheese. Bake at 400 F for about 12-15 minutes. Enjoy them while they are warm.
I hope you had a great weekend. We had some great family and friends time. Saturday night I had 8 children under the age of 10 years old all by myself for 2 hours (then Lon came home). I'll have you know, I made dinner and fed all of those kiddos too. It was some very fun chaos.
