Ingredients

For the Biscuits:

  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter chilled and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 Cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 6 Tablespoons buttermilk

For the Filling:

  • 2 Golden Delicious apples peeled and small diced
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. To make the biscuits, add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper to a large bowl. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Add the crumbled cheese and then make a well in the center, add the buttermilk and slowly incorporate it into the dough. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.
  2. When the dough is ready, roll it out to about a 1/4" thickness (thinner than you would for a biscuit) and cut out 4 equal circles. You can bake these in any individual sized pan (I used a small tart pan). Drape each dough circle over your pans.
  3. Make the filling by adding the apples, maple syrup, lemon juice, thyme, flour and salt to a bowl and mixing until combined. Place equal amounts of apple filling into each of your four pans and bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Serve over salad for a great lunch.
