Cheddar Apple Biscuits | Simply Southern Baking

There’s nothing better than warm buttermilk biscuits served with comfort food.  Unless, of course, you change it up a bit and add a little sugar, tart apple and sharp cheddar cheese.  You may not think of a buttermilk biscuit as being sweet, but let me tell you, this is one amazing biscuit!  Adding apples and cheese brings a new twist to traditional buttermilk biscuits and is a very tasty combination.  The apple juice concentrate gives them an extra punch of apple flavor.  The yummy sweet glaze really is the “icing on the cake” in this recipe!  Enjoy these biscuits anytime of day…breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snack time. 

I’m sure you could use any tart apple in these biscuits and they would be just as good when using a Granny Smith.  Give them a try…you’ll be glad you did!  You may find you’ll be asked to make them over and over.

Any leftovers (if they’re not all gobbled up when warm) can be briefly heated in the microwave.

    These look amazing!! I know some people like cheese with their apple pie so this isn’t weird. The glaze adds so much to it too! Can’t wait to make it.

      Julie, my sweet granny liked cheese on her apple pie so this is my version of cheese and apples together. Let me know what you think after you make them. :)

    Robin, WOW! Made these this morning and they are SOOOOOOOOOO yummy! I am a big fan of savory so I subbed a little extra cheese on top with a milk wash for some crispiness. Delicious!!!

    My husband, M, who has cooked meals for years, has decided to learn to bake. He made these biscuits,in our part of the world called “scones”, as his first try. OMG. They are just so good. He found the recipe easy to follow and although they were a bit flat (I found out after, that he had rolled and cut them)they tasted amazing. The surprise of apple in your mouth,from an unlikely source, made for a memorable experience. Both taste and texture and the contrast with the sharp cheese, added to the pleasure and I totally forgot all the principals of a low-carb and low-fat diet! Sort of like eating an apple-pie scone. lol. Thank you for this recipe which will definitely become part of our family!
    M has asked me to say that the cheese flavour was more pronounced the next day.

    • Robin says:

      Barbara, thanks for sharing your story about these biscuits. I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I think I could eat them about any time of day. :)

    I’ve just made these and plan on taking them to Sunday School brunch in the morning. Should I store them airtight overnight? Should I heat them briefly in the oven before leaving home with them in the morning?

    • Robin says:

      Hi Cheryl. Just getting back with you now…I would have left the glaze off after baking the night before, heated the biscuits in the morning and then added the glaze. I’m sure whatever you did was fine. Hope everyone enjoyed them.

  17. Diana Rich says:

    These were delicious! I don’t remember eating anything like these where I grew up in Virginia. I made them using extra sharp cheddar and Red Delicious apples (since my apples were sweet, I thought more intense cheese flavor for balance). I baked them the night before a brunch, and glazed them just before serving. No leftovers!
    Thanks, from a “simple” southern girl who loves to cook, now living in “Southern” California.

  18. Hi Robin, I just found these!!! I’ve made an apple cheddar quiche before and loved it! can’t wait to try these biscuits!!!
