Sticky, gooey Skillet Apple Biscuits are easy to make and absolutely delicious!


  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and large diced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 10 large biscuits (I like the canned “flaky layers” kind)


  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Biscuits: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a large (10- inch) cast iron skillet with butter, set aside.
  2. Place the apples, lemon juice, butter, heavy cream, vanilla, flour, 2/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring to combine. Cook for 8 – 10 minutes until mixture is bubbly and apples are softened. Remove from the heat.
  3. Divide the remaining sugar in half (doesn’t have to be exact) and sprinkle half onto the bottom of the skillet. Set the remainder of the sugar aside. Place the biscuits evenly in the skillet on top of the sugar.
  4. Spread the apple mixture on top of the biscuits evenly and sprinkle the remaining sugar on top.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until biscuits are golden brown and bubbly.
  6. Glaze: allow the biscuits to cool for 10 minutes. Whisk the powdered sugar and heavy cream together in a small bowl until smooth and drizzle on top of biscuits. Serve warm.


Store airtight at room temperature for up to 2 days.

To reheat, place the biscuit in the microwave for 10 – 15 seconds, if desired.
