A sweet and savory, tender biscuit with bits of apples and creamy gouda cheese. 


Units Scale
  • 2 cups (2 medium) tart apples, peeled and cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup gouda cheese, shredded (I used Kerrygold’s Blarney Castle)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet with baking spray or line with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. In a medium microwaveable bowl, precook apples on HIGH for 2 minutes. Note: readiness is determined when a fork is able to glide through the cubes without much force. Continue to microwave apples at 30 seconds intervals if additional time is needed. Do not microwave for more than a total of 3 minutes. Set bowl aside to cool to room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile in a separate medium bowl, whisk flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cheese, butter, 1/4 cup heavy cream and eggs until just combined, about 30 seconds. Gradually mix in flour mixture and cubed apples. Continue to mix until no dry air pockets remain but do not over mix batter. Note: batter will be wet and not dry as in a dough.
  5. Drop about 2 tablespoonfuls of batter on prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of each mounds of batter with heavy cream and sprinkle a pinch of sugar from the remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown and center is cooked throughout.
  7. Cool drop biscuits on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.


If gouda cheese is unavailable, you may substitute using the same quantity of mild or sharp cheddar cheese. Biscuits are best stored in air tight container and should be lightly toasted when ready to serve.
