Sharon Rose Ristich of Rochester, New York creates a tasty fruit topping for convenient refrigerated biscuits. “I usually double this recipe and put it in two pie plates to serve a crowd,” she says. “It really isn't hard to make the topping, but in a pinch, you can substitute canned apple pie filling instead,” she suggests.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 14, 2012

I had the ingredients to make this on hand when I was in a rush to provide a snack for my oldest daughter's class. Since I was pressed for time, I did the canned apple shortcut and mixed in the cinnamon and nutmeg. As handy as this recipe is, there's a big adjustment that I would make. The bottom of the biscuits (that sit on the apple mixture) would not bake properly and were doughy. I used a high quality stoneware pan and I bake all the time. I'd definitely make this again, but I would bake the biscuits until done, then take it out and add the heated apple mixture on top. Or maybe put it back into the oven for a few minutes after adding the apple mixture.
