Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1/4 cup biscuit mix
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 5 cups apple slices - 6 to 7 cooking apples, golden delicious, jonathan, etc., peeled, cored, sliced
  • cinnamon and nutmeg
  • granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups biscuit mix
  • 3/4 cup light cream or whipping cream


In a saucepan, combine 1/4 cup biscuit mix, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and vinegar and water. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Set aside to cool.

Place apples in a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle apples evenly with cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix 1 1/2 cups biscuit mix with the cream to make a soft dough. Drop over the sliced apples. Sprinkle with the granulated sugar and more cinnamon. Pour the cooled sauce over the top. Bake in a preheated 375° oven for about 35 to 45 minutes. Serve hot with cream or ice cream.
