Skillet Apple Biscuits

Skillet Apple Biscuits...a simple twist on biscuits that make them EXTRA SPECIAL!
AlltheRest

These Skillet Apple Biscuits are so easy and delicious! I used canned biscuits to save time. These are a crowd pleaser for sure!

I am so excited to share today’s recipe with you.

First off, there are apples involved. And we’re pretty much knee deep in apple season, aren’t we?

Secondly it’s made in a skillet. My favorite.

Thirdly there is a sugary, creamy glazy all up on that joint, which basically makes me weak in the knees.

They are Skillet Apple Biscuits and they are fantfreakingtastic.

Skillet Apple Biscuits. So easy and SO SO good! I used canned biscuits!

I will start by saying that I used canned biscuits here. Yes I did.

If you don’t want to, no problemo…just make your own biscuits. Everybody loves an overachiever…ahem.

Next, when you’ve made peace with your biscuit station in life grab you some Granny Smiths.

Large dice ’em up…

Then mix in some butter, heavy cream, sugar etc and cook those apples to make a quick apple pie filling-type mixture.

Grab your skillet…I used my largest one, it’s a 10 incher. And place 12 biscuits in there. I had to overlap them a bit.

If you only have a 9″ skillet just use a few less biscuits. It will be fine I swear. You won’t have to change the amount of apple mixture or anything. This is easy baking today, people.

Also, if you are using the canned biscuits don’t buy the “flaky layers” ones. Just the regular Southern or buttermilk ones will do.

Once you have them in your pan top them with your apple mixture…then a little bit more brown sugar and bake until they are puffy and golden brown…

Ok, now for the bestest part. The sugary, creamy glaze that makes life worth living…

It’s just heavy cream and powdered sugar. Stir it up and drizzle it alllllll over.

Skillet Apple Biscuits. Sweet, sticky and simple! The perfect fall breakfast!

And you should probably serve it warm. And eat it immediately.

And then die of happiness.

Simple Skillet Apple Biscuits. The perfect way to use up those apples!

Holy moly this looks amazing! Talk about perfect comfort food! I love the glaze pour shot, too. Wish I could do that without getting glaze everywhere except where it’s supposed to go 🙂 Love this one! pinned

Sounds absolutely wonderful! Since I love cinnamon with apple anything – and it’s so good for you – the only change I would make is to add a generous amount of cinnamon to those apples!

Oops, in looking at the actual recipe rather than just at your pictorial, I see there is cinnamon-although I would probably double it! 🙂

These look incredible! Thanks so much for the recipe. I’m a bit of an overachiever so I will make homemade biscuits, but it is nice to have the option of canned. Pinning this now – thanks, again!

I no longer have a cast iron skillet. Can I use a heavy, short sided stainless steel pot instead?

Hi! So I just made this beautiful dish this morning and it was EXCELLENT! My husband absolutely loved it and there wasn’t a speck of crumbs on his plate! I modified the recipe just a tiny bit by adding more cinnamon (which I think I will double next time), 2 apples ( next time I’ll use 4), and I sprinkled diced almonds on top mixed with the brown sugar. Overall, it’s a fantastic recipe and I will make this for the family Christmas Eve dinner!

The biscuits she is using come in a can that is normally found in the refrigeratored dairy section. They aren’t frozen biscuits.

So you just pour the heavy cream and don’t mix it correct? Just stir it with the sugar? I love the flaky buttermilk bisquits, is there a reason you say not to use them? Thanks, Alicia

@Gigi and Enas, if you are non-American like myself, the closest substitute or equivalent of the American Biscuit is what we call Scones. From the recipe you can guage that its actual prebaked scones and not the raw dough used.

What exactly are canned biscuits? We don’t have anything like that in South Africa. I would love to try this recipe! Is there a substitute I can use?

I’m in Australia and am wondering after reading a few biscuit recipes like this- what kind of biscuit are you talking about?? If I was to make these biscuits in this recipe what ingredients do you use? This looks amazeballs!!!

I made this for brunch and even my picky husband raved about this. The only changes I made was I added a tsp vanilla extract to the apples, and after removing the biscuits from the oven and pouring the glaze, i sprinkled some chopped pecans that i had toasted on the stove with a pat of butter. And i used 12 refrigerated biscuits and an 8×11 baking dish. Worked perfectly. Delish!

Made this for brunch and it was a hit! This recipe is fabulous, and quick and easy! Reminds me of apple pie. I will definitely be making this again, but may try the addition of pecans as one reader suggested but it was delicious without them. Thanks for the great recipe.

What about using homemade apple pie filling instead? Sounds like that’s what it may be (apple mixture). Looks wonderful and a great way to use the iron skillet! What’s the clean up look like? I’m new to CIS cooking.
