Apple/Raisin Cream Cheese Puffs

A delicious treat during apple season. I used a biscuit recipe for the dough and am happy with the results. Best served warm.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup shredded apple, approx 1 large
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  1. Pulse dry ingredients in food processor.
  2. Add butter and pulse a few more times till butter is pea size.
  3. Crack eggs into a measuring cup and add buttermilk to fill 1 cup. 
  4. Add to processor and pulse a few times till dough comes together.
  5. Dump dough onto a well floured surface and gather into a ball.
  6. On a floured surface, roll out large enough to cut 22 rounds, using a 3" round cutter.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth.
  8. In a another bowl, mix shredded apple, and raisins.
  9. Place 11 biscuit rounds on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  10. Spread cream cheese mixture on each biscuit, leaving space at the edges.
  11. Top each one with apple mixture and place another round on each one, pressing down the edges to seal.
  12. Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 22 minutes.
  13. Drizzle with glaze while still warm
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 3 teaspoons milk

  1. Whisk together until smooth and of drizzling consistency. 


  1. What fun to bite into these and have that nice filling as a surprise.

  2. I can just taste these now, or what I imagine them to taste like.
    I have the ingredients at home, so I will give it a try and let you know how they turned out.

  3. I just made these this evening. They were wondereful. I loved the cream cheese inside. I could eat just that alone! My kids loved them and so did my husband.

    1. Thank you for letting us know that you tried the recipe and had success! Now I crave them. :)
