FRIED CINNAMON APPLE BISCUITS
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter (chilling, sliced into pats)
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (chilled)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup sugar
canola oil (for frying)
1 tablespoon butter
1 granny smith apple (peeled and diced)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oil to 350ºF.
In a large bowl add the flour, baking soda, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt and whisk to combine. Add the butter and toss to coat in flour mixture. Work the butter into the flour mixture using fingertips. Add buttermilk to the flour and stir to combine.
In a medium skillet add butter and heat over medium heat. Add apples, sugar and cinnamon and cook until apples begin to break down, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool.
In a small bowl add the cinnamon and sugar and mix to combine.
Use an ice cream scoop to portion dough. Add a teaspoon of apple mixture in the center, close the biscuit and drop into frying oil. Allow to fry until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from oil and dust with cinnamon sugar.
Tips: fill with cooled sausage gravy or jam!
