Apple Biscuits!

Here I was fixing dinner when the kids asked me if I would make something for dessert. I said yes, but then I realized I really didn't have anything on hand and am out of eggs.

This to me is what I love about cooking because you create something out of nothing and using just what you have available. It's at these times that I've ended up with really good recipes.

So I grabbed a few apples and a big can of large buttermilk biscuits and set to work....or rather, while I was fixing the steaks, I set everything out for Jasmine and instructed her and SHE made them. You wouldn't believe the happiness and excitement exuding from this child :)

One of the things I really like about these Apple Biscuits is that they're not rich and super sweet, just perfect!

APPLE BISCUITS

1 can of large buttermilk biscuits (8)
2 apples peeled and cored and chopped into chunks
cinnamon
brown sugar


In a small bowl, mix together the apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Just eyeball it and add more or less as needed.

Open the biscuits in half and spoon some of the apple mixture into the middle.

Squeeze the seams together to seal and using a fork or a toothpick or whatever, poke 3 or 4 holes on the top.

Bake in a 375 degree oven until golden brown.

Now take a big bite....yum, look at that apple....
