  • 8 frozen buttermilk biscuits thawed or Easy Cream Biscuits
  • 1 21 oz can premium apple pie filling
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup walnut or pecan pieces [optional]
  • Glaze: [May double if desired]
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp cream or half & half


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Melt the butter, and brush on all sides of a 10-inch cast iron skillet.
  • In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until blended.
  • Dip each biscuit in the butter, and sprinkle all sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Arrange side by side in the skillet.
  • Cut the apples in the pie filling into smaller pieces, and mix in 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla. Arrange over the biscuits.
  • Pour the remaining butter over all and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar on top.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and puffy.
  • Mix together the powdered sugar and cream until smooth. May double, if desired. Drizzle on top. Serve immediately.


When apples are in season, or when time permits, I prefer to make my own fresh apple topping.
4 cups apples, peeled, cored & cut into pieces [your favorite variety]
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 tsp salt
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, cook 4 cups of cubed apples with the juice of 1 lemon, 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 tsp salt. Cook over medium-low heat until tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Thicken the juices with cornstarch if needed. Proceed with the recipe as written.
