How to bake Apple Biscuits•
Posted on 24 January 2012
Anyone for apple biscuits? From glorious weather, to weather that you can hardly stand up in because the wind has boon blowing so hard. These two extremes are a complete sample of winter life. This last week I have found that I have only been outside to do the bare necessities and that I have opted for the kitchen.
So, here is a recipe for some of the remaining apples, yes I still have some under the apple trees that I can cook with.
These biscuits are delicious at tea time with a nice cup of tea or you can use them to jazz up a bowl of ice cream.
6oz (175g) butter – soft is better
3oz (75g) caster sugar
3oz (75g) light brown sugar
1 egg – large
½ tsp vanilla essence
8oz (225g) plain flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp bicarbonate of Soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cooking apples
Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes Makes 20 biscuits
1. Turn the oven on to 150°C, 300°F, Gas mark 2 (low - medium sort of heat).
2. Grease a baking sheet or two with butter.
3. Put the butter and all the sugar into an electric mixer or bowl if doing it by hand and beat until soft and creamy.
4. Slowly add the egg and vanilla essence.
5. When this is mixed in add the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon.
6. Peel the apples, and then grate them with a cheese grater.
7. With your hands squeeze the juice out of the grated apples. When you have done this add the apple and the oats to the mixture.
8. Mix it all in then, roll the slightly sloppy dough into large balls, flatten them and place them quite far apart onto the baking sheets. 6-8 per sheet.
9. Put in the oven for between 15-20 minutes, until the biscuits are a golden colour. Leave them on the trays for about 5 minutes and then put them on a wire rack to finish cooling.
