Very good! I loved the apple flavor and what the pear did to it. I forgot to put the sugar on top of the biscuit mix though. It still tasted really good!

Tasty! I usually cut up my own fruit, but really enjoy recipes such as this to bring when we RV. I put as many ingredients together as possible in a zip lock bag with instructions.
