COUNTRY APPLE BISCUITS


Have you been having a fantastic time in the grocery store lately? Oh, yes, Cool Whip.....you so got the name right....Season's Delight! There are so many tempting products out just for the holiday season....Honey Crisp apples from Costco, pumpkin and orange cinnamon rolls, Carrot Cake cookies and french vanilla whipped topping just to name a few! Happy our are days!

I wanted to think of a new and different twist on breakfast which would feature these gorgeous apples that would be good to serve for the upcoming holidays! I love making homemade applesauce and fried apples! I thought of perhaps trying this poured over hot biscuits which the darling loves for breakfast! To my delight, it turned out to be really good! So here is my version of Country Apple Biscuits! 




Peel and dice two apples
Sprinkle with lemon juice


Mix together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt


Melt butter and then add apples


Sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture


Simmer apples until softened


Stir gently while apples simmer in that delicious cinnamon sugar mixture
 for about 15-20 minutes


Perfect


Place four frozen biscuits into a cast iron pan
Pour the diced cooked apples over the biscuits


Spread evenly over the biscuits 


Sprinkle mixture with a tiny bit of brown sugar


Drizzle with a nutmeg and vanilla glaze



COUNTRY APPLE BISCUITS

2 large Honey Crisp apples, peeled and large diced
1 T. lemon juice
4 T.  butter
1/4 cup half and half
1 T. flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar + 2 T reserved
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
4  large frozen biscuits
 (Estelle's recommends Mary B's)
 I find these at Kroger and Wal-Mart in the frozen bread section

Glaze
1/4 cup powdered sugar
3-4 T. half and half
1/4 t. vanilla
1/4 t. nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Grease a 8 or 10- inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray, set aside.
Melt 4 T. butter and half and half. Put diced apples into a medium sauce pan and sprinkle with lemon juice, stirring to coat. 

In a bowl, whisk together flour, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg  and 1/4 tsp salt. Add this to apples and stir to coat. Heat mixture over medium low heat until apples soften and a thick sauce is created, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Place biscuits in pan, Pour apple mixture evenly o top of biscuits and sprinkle with reserved 2 Tbsp pf light brown sugar.Bake for 30-35 minutes until biscuits are golden brown.

Glaze
Mix powdered sugar, half and half, nutmeg and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth and drizzle on top of biscuits while still hot. Serve warm.



I can't wait for a Sunday breakfast of Apple Biscuits and some crisp maple bacon!
 Put the coffee on.........
