Give Thanks, Ye Bachelors

Somebody brought these delicious treats to church on Sunday. If I wasn't a Lutheran, I might say they were sinfully good. But I know better. Goodness is a gift of God. So be thankful for this recipe, bachelors. And save one for Mom!

  • 1 1/3 chopped apples (recommended: red or yellow delicious)
  • 1/3 cup raisins that have been plumped (for example, in whisky)
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • 1 large package (17.3 oz.) flaky biscuit dough (10 count)
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter
  • 1 21 oz. can apple pie filling (Tip: Wilderness More Fruit Apple Pie Filling has more fruit & less filling)
Cut apples into bite-size pieces. Combine chopped apples, raisins, 3 tablespoons sugar, 3/4 teaspooons cinnamon, and salt. Microwave 2-3 minutes until apples are tender. Cool mixture, then add the can of pie filling. Stir until well blended. In another bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon, set aside.

Separate and flatten the biscuit dough pieces by hand or roller until they measure about 5 inches. Divide apple mixture between the flattened biscuits. Bring sides of biscuit up to envelop the apple mixture. Pinch edges to seal. Place sealed-side-down in an ungreased muffin pan. Spread top of each biscuit with melted butter. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture over biscuits. With a sharp knife cut a criss-cross pattern in the middle of the biscuits. Bake at 350 F for 18-22 minutes or until golden-brown. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire racks or plate.
