Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 small Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
3 Tbs. flour
1 Tbs. ground cinnamon, divided
3/4 cup sugar, divided
17.3 oz. pkg. grand-size flaky/buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
10.2 oz. pkg. grand-size flaky/buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)
1 Tbs. butter or margarine, melted
Vanilla Ice cream or Cool Whip, optional
Caramel ice cream topping, optional


Heat oven to 350. Peel, core and slice apples. Place apples, walnuts,

raisins, flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl and mix well.

Microwave apple mixture on high 3 minutes or until hot. Mix well. Separate 12

biscuits and place on cutting board. Roll each biscuit into a 5” disk, flouring

dough as needed. Arrange biscuits in a single layer on clean, flat surface.

Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of mixture over

biscuits. Divide apple mixture evenly over center of each biscuit; gather up

edges over filling, pinching to seal. Microwave butter about 15 seconds or

until melted.

Holding each biscuit at sealed end, dip each biscuit into butter, then in

remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place biscuits, seam side down, into muffin

pan. Do not press down into cup! Using a serrated bread knife, cut through

top of each biscuit, making a crisscross pattern. Bake 25-30 minutes or

until golden brown. Remove from pan. If desired, serve with a scoop of vanilla

ice cream and drizzle with caramel sauce.
