easy apple pie, biscuit pie

Anyone can make Apple Biscuit Pie. 

I’ll admit that making pastry is not for everyone, but a basic biscuit dough made with self-rising flour is for everyone because of the countless variations you can invent with self-rising flour, shortening, and liquid.

Apple Biscuit Pie is also a simple teaching tool for kids inspired to bake. First, cut the butter into the self-rising flour and sugar. Cutting just means incorporating the butter into the flour in nice little chunks so that it looks like lumpy cornmeal. Next stir in the liquids. The batter doesn’t have to be smooth because the butter bits will melt and produce a tender cake. Your batter is now ready.

Spread half of the dough into a pie pan. Scatter with the diced apples and sugar. Top with the remaining dough and bake. Serve with whipped cream, or just a nice hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.  Remember that southern self-rising flour is pre-mixed with baking powder and salt, so it’s the easiest thing to use for all kinds of quick breads.
