- Ingredients -
For the biscuits:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons of butter
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
For the cinnamon swirl filling:
½ cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, melted
For the apples:
2/3 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
6 cups sliced and peeled granny smith apples
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
2/3 cups water
- Preparation -
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- For biscuits, in a medium bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until fully combined. With a pastry blender, cut in 4 tablespoons of butter into the flour mixture. It should resemble coarse crumbs. Stir together milk and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk and vanilla all at once. Using a rubber spatula, stir the dough together just until it forms a ball. Do not overmix.
- On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for about 5 strokes. Roll the dough into a 12" x 16" rectangle. Combine, nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with nut mixture all the way to the edges. Roll up in a spiral, starting from the short side. Pinch seam to seal. With a sharp knife, cut into six 1-inch thick slices, set aside.
- For the apple filling, in a large saucepan stir together 2/3 cups brown sugar, corn starch. Add apples and water. Cook and stir until bubbly and apples are tender. Carefully pour hot filling into an ungreased 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
- Arrange biscuit slices cut side down, onto the hot filling. Bake about 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or until biscuits are slightly golden. Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream.
