In the middle of pumpkin-everything-season make sure you don’t neglect those sweet, crisp apples. These biscuits are flavored with the essence of autumn, and they are packed full of juicy apples.
Fall is finally here. I love having the house open and listening to the rustling of the leaves as they just begin to dry out. As soon as it cools down outside I crave baking and cooking stews on the stove all day long. I have to say though, if all my experiments end up like this one I will be one very happy girl!
The squirrel seems a little suspicious of the leaf-shaped apple biscuits, but I think it’s just because they are following him a little too closely. You can expect a tender crumb, moist biscuit with a consistent light flavor of cinnamon with frequent bursts of apple.
These biscuits bring the taste of apples to a perfect breakfast biscuit. Made with whole wheat and just a touch sweetness and cut out in maple leaves it brings fall right to your table. If you’d like them a little sweeter make an icing with some powdered sugar and a few drops of maple extract.
- 2 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon allspice
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 2 medium apples peeled and chopped, about 1 1/2 cups
- 1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy milk
- 1/2 cup plain vegan yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and oil 2 baking sheets.
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
- Cut in the coconut oil with a pastry blender or 2 forks until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
- Stir in the apples, milk, and yogurt just until combined. Pour out the mixture onto a floured cutting board, patting the dough to about ½ inch thickness.
- Using a round biscuit cutter or seasonal cookies cutter, cut out the biscuits and place them on greased baking sheet.
- Reform your dough and pat down again to ½ inch, and cut out more biscuits. Repeat until all the dough is used.
- Cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until bottoms are browned and the middle of the biscuit is firm.
