Ingredients

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt (Kosher or Table Salt)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Very Cold
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Rosemary, Chopped
  • 1 medium-sized apple, peeled and chopped (small dice)
  • 1/2 cup white cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 Cup + 4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream; Divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper; whisk well to combine. Using a large cheese grater shred the butter into the dry ingredients; use two forks or a pastry cutter to work the butter into the mix, stopping when the mixture is a coarse meal. Stir in the rosemary, then add in the chopped apple, grated cheese, crumbled bacon and 1 cup + 3 tablespoons of the cream; stir with a fork just until a messy (sticky) ball is formed. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and knead (with floured hands) until the dough has been worked into a ball; about 6-7 times should do it. Pat the ball down into a 1" thick round, then use a biscuit cutter to cut out as many rounds as possible, re-rolling the scraps as needed.
  3. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, brush each one with a little of the remaining cream, and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Eat at once! These make excellent breakfast sandwiches.
