Surprise in a Biscuit

Ready in 45 minutes

"My kids claim this to be one of the best things they've ever eaten."

"My nieces loved making these delicious, easy to prepare biscuits. Our entire family loved eating them. Next time I may soften the filling by sauteing the apple pieces, brown sugar and cinnamon in a little butter and maybe a splash of apple juice."

Sooooo good! I didn't use the apple juice and powdered sugar and it was till good. I bet it's amazing with the glaze.

These are great and super easy to make. I sautéed the apples before I placed in dough just make sure you let apples cool before wrapping. I didn't do apple juice and sugar and they are still excellent

Ok recipe- neat idea but my troops didn't go nuts over them. I made Brie and apple ones and they made a mess. I may try a different combo next time.
