Bacon Apple Cider Biscuits

This was an interesting recipe. The flavors were interesting in a different way. It ended up tasting pretty good and it was unlike anything I'd ever made or tried before. Very interesting mix of sweet and salty flavors. I found this recipe in the Taste Of Home Simple and Delicious Sept/Oct 2008 issue. Makes a different dish to serve for breakfast and you can freeze them for a quick breakfast meal.

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
8 tablespoons cold butter, cubed and divided
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup apple cider or juice
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Cut in 7 tablespoons butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add bacon. Stir in cider just until combined.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll into a 10 inch by 6 inch rectangle. Melt remaining butter; brush over dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Cut into eight rectangles. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

  1. Very interesting recipe Norah. I've added bacon to plain biscuits and corn muffins but never to Apple Cider Biscuits. Quite intriguing. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
