Apple Biscuits with Honey Butter Glaze

Apple Biscuits with Honey Butter Glaze

For our final recipe, this is the perfect addition to any meal during this fall season. A little touch of honey with these Apple Biscuits with Honey Butter Glaze are always a sweet way to start the day (or end an evening) that is filled with the magic of the season!

  • 4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour plus more for dusting the surface

  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder Plus 1 teaspoon

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda

  • 2 teaspoons Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Salt

  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cardamom

  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves

  • 1 cup Butter Cold

  • 1/2 cup Apple Grated

  • 1 cup Buttermilk Chilled


  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter Chilled

  • 3 tablespoons Honey

  • pinch Salt



  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large bowl whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and apple pie spices.

  • Cut in the butter and grated apple using a pastry cutter OR a fork OR your hands. Method is a preference thing. You’ll know it’s good when coarse crumbs have formed and if you grab up a fistful it sticks together pretty well.

  • Gently stir in the buttermilk. I sort of folded in mine with a rubber spatula.

  • Generously flour a clean work surface and keep your flour nearby to dust your hands and the dough regularly.

  • Scatter flour over the dough in the bowl — it will be obnoxiously wet and sticky!! Just do your best and make sure to incorporate any dry bits from the bottom of the bowl into the sticky dough mess.

  • Turn the dough out onto your prepared surface, flour your hands, and knead it a few times. It will get easier to work with.

  • Pat it out into a kind of oblong oval shape that’s about an inch thick. Fold the short sides toward the middle, sort of like you’re folding an envelope. This is what gives your finished biscuits their “layered” texture. Smack the folded dough down and press it back out into the oval shape.

  • Repeat this process a total of 7 times.

  • Cut the biscuits into 3- to 4-inch circles and place them on an ungreased baking sheet or 2 round cake pans.


  • Bake for 20 minutes.


  • While the biscuits bake, make the honey butter glaze. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and salt.

  • When the biscuits come out of the oven brush them with the honey butter glaze.


  • You can substitute 2 teaspoons apple pie spice for the cinnamon, nutmeg, inger, cardamom, and cloves.
