  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar *divided
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 canned biscuits (buttermilk)
  • 4 tsp. ground cinnamon



Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Peel, core and slice apples vertically into 8 slices each. Cover with water to keep them from getting brown.

In a medium saucepan, mix the water, 3/4 cup sugar, butter and vanilla over heat and bring mixture to a boil.

Separate each biscuit into 2 layers and flatten with your hands. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching it to slightly overlap and seal the bottom. (You can use a rolling pin to roll them out since stretching them is sometimes hard to get them even).
Place the wrapped slices sealed side down in a 9 X 13 baking pan. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices.

Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over the tops of the wrapped apples.

Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serves 8
