Apple-Pie-Biscuts[1]

Sometimes a recipe is just too delicious to believe it could be easy to make.  Apple Pie Biscuits is one of those recipes, made with frozen biscuits and canned apple pie filling.  I’m thinking these will be perfect to serve for breakfast during Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday.  Here’s how:

  • 12 frozen buttermilk biscuits (not canned)
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 sticks melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • up to 1/4 cup milk or cream

First melt the butter  in a medium sized bowl.  In a separate bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon.  In another bowl add the apple pie filling and vanilla.  Cut up the apple slices into smaller 1″ pieces.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a 12″ iron skillet (or a 9×13 dish) with butter.  Then take each frozen biscuit and dip it in melted butter to completely coat it.  Then dip buttered frozen biscuit in the cinnamon/sugar mixture then place in buttered skillet.  Continue dipping biscuits in butter and sugar mixture and arrange them in the iron skillet.  If there is any sugar mixture left, sprinkle it over the top of the biscuits in the skillet.  Next pour the canned apple mixture over the top of the biscuits and spread evenly.  Add nuts if desired.  If there is any melted butter left, pour it over top of apple filling and nuts.  Bake biscuits for 20-25 minutes, or until biscuits have full cooked in the middle.  While biscuits are cooking mix the powdered sugar with  enough milk or cream to make icing.  Pour/spread icing over biscuits as soon as they are removed from oven.
