During the Autumn, an abundance of apples arrive and the dessert making begins. Instead of focussing all efforts on producing the perfect apple pies or cobbler recipes, consider trying this easy skillet apple pie biscuits recipe. Kim at Relativetaste recipe blog prepared this dessert for family, and everyone loved it. Part of the appeal is the fluffy biscuits, but also the cinnamon-spiced apples and icing sugar glaze. This dessert recipe is ideal for when there isn’t time to make a more complicated sweet treat because it uses refrigerated biscuits rather than you having to make your own. All you have to do is prepare a two-ingredient glaze recipe as well as cook some apples, before assembling the dessert and baking the entire dish in the oven.

If you need easy apple recipes to use up a bountiful crop, this skillet dessert uses a generous four cups of apples, and it's easy enough to prepare repeatedly through the week. You can use any apple varieties you enjoy the best for this dessert, but the results will be vary depending on the kind you use. If you prefer a sour-tasting apple in your desserts, choose green granny smith apples, which are tart and also hold their shape very well when cooked. If you prefer a sweeter apple, choose Macintosh or Cortland apples, although they will lose their shape the longer they are cooked. Gala and Golden Delicious apples are ideal if you like the contrast between sweet and tangy in your apple recipes. There isn’t a lot of sugar incorporated into the apple mixture, but it isn’t necessary since the powdered sugar glaze sweetens the dessert significantly. For those who are looking to decrease their sugar intake from dessert recipes, adding cinnamon is an excellent way of promoting a dessert flavor without adding extra sugar. Cinnamon is a nutritious spice, especially in larger quantities. The nutritional value of cinnamon includes very high amounts of manganese, dietary fiber, and calcium, as well as high amounts of iron. This apple recipe uses one tablespoon of cinnamon, which means you and your family will get the most out of this spice.

Quick and easy apple desserts always have a key component to their success and in the case of this apple recipe, a heatproof skillet or frying pan comes in handy. Kim uses a cast iron skillet, which is heavy-bottomed and retains even heat on all sides. If you don’t own a cast iron skillet, however, you could use a pure stainless steel skillet, which is also oven safe. Alternatively, you can use an oven safe dish, although it may not promote as rustic an appearance as a skillet would or result in the same texture on the dough, as other recipes with biscuit dough.

This apple skillet is a homey dish that will work well for a comforting addition to a meal during fall and winter or even serve to company. Thank you to Kim, the author of Relativetaste recipe blog, for sharing her easy skillet apple pie biscuits recipe with us.
