Ingredients For Apple Pie Biscuits on wooden counter

Glazed Topping Ingredients

  • powdered sugar
  • heavy cream

How To Make Apple Pie Biscuits

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. This recipe is best made with a 10 inch round pan or skillet. But you can use a 9-inch pan also.

Melt the butter and brush the sides of your round pan with it. Set aside the remaining butter.

Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Take each biscuit and dip the top, side and bottom in the mixture to coat them and then place them in the prepared pan. When finished, set aside the rest of the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture.

Pour the apple pie filling into a bowl. Then slice the apples into small bite size pieces and mix in the vanilla extract.

Spoon the apple filling all over the top of your biscuits. Then sprinkle the remaining brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture over the top and drizzle with the remaining butter.

Bake for 35 minutes. It may take longer if you are using a 9-inch pan.

To make the glaze mix the powdered sugar and heavy cream until combined.

Drizzle the glaze on top and serve while warm.

When serving these as dessert we love to have them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Because ice cream and warm apple pie filling make the perfect dessert combination. 

How To Store: These are best served fresh but once baked you can store covered in air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Recipe Tips

If you make the apple pie biscuits using homemade biscuit dough you may need to adjust the baking time depending on the thickness of the biscuit dough.

Instead of the glazed icing you can use cream cheese icing instead.

This is also delicious with pecans sprinkled on top before baking.

You can use fresh apples instead of apple pie filling. Follow the instructions below.

Can I Make This With Fresh Apples?

This recipe is using apple pie filling and biscuits. But you can substitute fresh apples in place of the apple pie filling.

If using fresh apples, I recommend using 4 granny smith apples, peeled and diced into bite size pieces. Then place the apples in a bowl and toss with 3 to 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1/3 cup of granulated sugar until evenly coated.

Add the apples to a skillet and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Then stir in the vanilla, and set aside. Let the apples cool and thicken while you prepare the biscuits.

Well, I tried this recipe with one and a half cans of peaches without the syrup. I am going to serve with some of the leftover peaches for topping. I like the recipe and plan to use it again.Thank you again.

Other than using the butter on the pan, where do you use the rest? It calls for 4 tablespoons and surely you don't need that much to grease the pan -- right?

Hi Denise. You will use the remaining butter in step 5 in the recipe card - "Then sprinkle the remaining brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture over the top and drizzle with the remaining butter." That is the last step before baking. Hope you enjoy it!
