Sticky Apple Biscuits

Instead of the typical drop or cut biscuits, this hearty version is rolled up like a cinnamon roll. Tender apples, crunchy pecans and sweet honey make these a wonderful breakfast treat.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    1 dozen


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup pecan halves
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup diced peeled tart apple
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons raisins


  • In a small bowl, combine the honey, brown sugar, butter and water. Divide among 12 greased muffin cups. Sprinkle with pecans; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in shortening and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk and apple just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a floured surface. Pat into a 10-in. x 8-in. rectangle, about 1/2 in. thick. Spread with butter, then applesauce; drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with brown sugar and raisins. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut into 12 biscuits. Place, cut side down, over pecan mixture in muffin cups.
  • Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before inverting onto a serving platter. Serve warm.
