8 frozen buttermilk biscuits thawed
1 [21 oz] can of premium apple pie filling
1 stick [1/2 cup] butter, melted
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp cream or half & half or 1-2 tsp whole milk
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Melt the butter, and brush on all sides of the skillet. I used my 10 inch cast iron skillet for these biscuits, but, you can use any comparable baking dish. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon 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.
Sprinkle the last of the cinnamon sugar on top. Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden.
Stir together the powdered sugar and cream/half&half/milk, and drizzle on top. Serve hot. Yield: 8 servings
If you'd like to add nuts to these biscuits, sprinkle chopped nuts on top along with the brown sugar just before baking.
