Apple Cinnamon Biscuits

Apples in summer?  Trust me, when you smell these wonderful confections baking on a saturday or sunday morning, you'll wonder why you haven't made these sooner.  And reheated, they make the perfect breakfast...just ask Mr. F who consumed two this morning.

I am all about simple recipe, and this is right up there with the pizza bites and tortellini pesto salad. Using pre-made, flaky biscuit dough and an easy raisin, apple, and cinnamon mixture, these bake up in about 20 minutes.  

Bon Appetite!
Apple Cinnamon Biscuits
Recipe adapted from Taste of Home

1 1/3 c. apples, chopped

1/3 c. golden raisins
1/2 c. sugar, divided

dash of salt
1 pkg. large refrigerated flaky biscuits
2 tsp. butter, melted

In a lg. microwave- safe bowl, combine the apples, pecans, raisins, 3 tbls. sugar, flour, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, and salt. Microwave 2-3 minutes or until almost tender.
