1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter.

Combine the egg, applesauce and sour cream; mix quickly with the dry ingredients. Turn out onto a floured surface; knead lightly then roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness.

Cut into 2-inch biscuits and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the cheese over the biscuits and bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
