Caramel Apple - Topped Biscuits

I tweaked a recipe from a Taste of Home Annual Recipes 2006 cookbook for this yummy dish.

Using fresh apples, and whole wheat biscuits, it's a healthier option that you don't have to feel guilty eating. 

Try it for breakfast tomorrow!


  3 c. sliced peeled tart apples
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 Tb. quick-cooking tapioca
1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
dash cloves
1/8 tsp. salt
2 - 3 Tb. water
1 tube (16 ozs) large refrigerated (whole wheat) buttermilk biscuits 

In large saucepan, combine apples, sugar, tapioca, lemon juice, spices, salt and water. Let stand for 15 minutes.  Cook over medium heat for 8 - 10 minutes or until apples are tender.  Preheat oven to 375.

Transfer apple mixture to a greased 9" deep pie plate. (Can use cake pan). 
Place biscuits over apples.  Bake 18 - 20 minutes or until biscuits are nicely browned.  Immediately invert onto a serving plate. 

Yield: 8 servings

  1. Yum, I love easy treats. Your Caramel Apple Topped Biscuits look delightful. Thanks for sharing!


  2. These sound so good, and I'm so excited to hear that you can now buy whole wheat refrigerated biscuits! What's next? Whole wheat tortillas at Taco Bell (I hope)? :)

  3. Oh yum! This sounds wonderful for a brunch. I only have two Taste of Home annual cookbooks, but love them. I didn't know there were whole wheat canned biscuits!

  4. I love the idea of a topped biscuit. It sounds like the perfect brunch dish. Saw it on Weekend Potluck. Pinned to make soon.

  5. I made these biscuits a long time ago, thanks for sharing and reminding me about these yummy treats. I think I made them in a bundt pan too! Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
