2 cups of flour
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/3 cup of shortening
2/3 cup milk (add more if necessary)
3 medium Granny Smith apples - shredded (I use the cheese grater)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3 T butter (softened)
Preheat the oven to 425.
Mix the first 3 ingredients.
Cut in the shortening.
Stir in the milk until it forms a dough ball.
Flour some parchment paper and roll the dough into a rectangle.
Spread the butter on the dough.
Shred the apples using a grater onto a kitchen towel. Then wring out the juice. (You can save it for cider in a bowl if you want). If you skip this step, you will have soggy biscuits - that's no good!
So then sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the dough, and follow with the shredded apples- this step is especially fun for little ones!
Variations: you could add cinnamon or toasted pecans if you are so inclined.
