Apple Mixture

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Kosher salt


  • 2 cans (32 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, flaky
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

Apple Mixture

  1. Peel, core, and dice the apples.

  2. In a medium bowl combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Toss to coat apples evenly.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add apple mixture and cook until apples are tender (about 5 minutes).


  1. While apples are cooking, remove the biscuits from the tube and cut them each into six pieces.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
  3. Roll each piece into a ball and roll it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the biscuits into a greased 12-inch skillet.

  4. Spoon apples on top of biscuits in the skillet and bake until golden brown (about 30 minutes).
