Apple Pie Biscuits

Nothing smells or tastes better than fresh apple pie right out of the oven. However, if you are like me and there just aren't enough hours in the day to focus on making homemade apple pie, then these apple biscuits are for you! Great for breakfast or dessert!

What You Need
1 can Jumbo-sized biscuits
1 can apple pie filling
Cinnamon or apple pie spice
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1-1 1/2 tbsp milk
1 sandwich bag
scissors
bowl


What You Do
Bake the biscuits as directed on the can. Let cool.

Wash your hands and dry them.
Create a "basket" in the center of each biscuit by pressing your finger down into the center.

Gently press the inside dough into the bottom of the biscuit, reinforcing it so that the filling does not leak through the bottom.
Fill each biscuit with pie filling and lightly dust with cinnamon or apple pie spice.

** At this point, the biscuits can be stored in a sealed container for up to 8 hours with no problems.

To serve, place on a plate and drizzle with glaze. (see below)

Warm Biscuits: You can reheat before serving (if desired) by placing one biscuit on a microwave safe plate and heating on high power for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and drizzle with glaze as directed below.

For the Glaze: In a bowl, mix confectioner's sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk. Stir until smooth. Add more milk, a few drops at a time, until desired consistency. You can drizzle the icing with a spoon or use the following method: Fill a sandwich bag with confectioner's sugar icing, seal the bag and push the icing into one corner of the bag. Using scissors, slightly snip off this corner of the bag. Drizzle the icing liberally across the top of each biscuit.

Serve immediately.

Cherry Variation: If your sweet tooth calls for cherry (or peach for that matter!) simply substitute the desired pie filling for the apple.

What great posts. My family would love those sweet little biscuits. I really am enjoying your wonderful blog.
I loved the idea from the comment you left about putting a joke note in your son's lunch box. I passed it on to my sisters, too.

I've made Tami's biscuits before and they are truly fabulous! My kids liked the apple better, but I am a big cherry fan, so those were my fave. I like the idea of making these from all the fresh apples we picked from the orchard :O)

Thanks, Ladies!

My favorite is cherry but I'm definitely out numbered by the apple lovers in my house. I've made them for my husband to take to work for the guys and they are split on which they like better. One thing is for sure, though, there weren't any left over!

Prudy, My son is almost 11 and still enjoys Mom's corny jokes. lol! It started out with little love notes when he was in kindergarten and went on from that. I wouldn't dare send him a love note now. lol! I do still get to send them with my 5 yr. old, though! :)

What ages are your sisters' kids?
