Apple-Cheddar Drop Biscuits


Recipe courtesy of Blew Kind

Makes 9 biscuits

2¼ cups flour
1 heaping tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons butter, chilled and cubed
1 tablespoon raw agave nectar
1 cup milk
1 apple, cored and diced with skin on
Fresh cilantro, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons aged cheddar, diced
Preheat the oven to 425°.

Place flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Whisk well to combine. Add the butter and cut it into the flour mixture, using a wooden spoon or the paddle of a mixer, until the mixture resembles peas. Once it reaches a clumpy consistency, add agave nectar evenly into the mixture.

Stir in milk. The consistency should be like cake batter. If dry, add more milk by the teaspoon. Take off mixer, if used. Fold in the diced apple, cilantro and aged cheddar.

Spoon out 9 biscuits. Put in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until crispy brown on top.
