1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (I used 2 smaller cans)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 medium apple, peeled, chopped (1 cup)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with round ends) (I did not use these)
12 cupcake liners (I did not use these)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Heat oven to 350°F.
Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. I chose not to use paper cups but if you chose to do so do this now. If you are not using cups make sure you spray your pan real good. You will have to excuse my cupcake pan...it is very well loved!
Cut each biscuit into 4-6 pieces; place in large bowl.
Add butter, apple, granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Toss gently to mix.
Spoon mixture into muffin cups.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan.
DO NOT START UNTIL THE BISCUITS ARE DONE (I made the mistake of doing this when the biscuits were baking and it was fully set by the time the biscuits was done...to fix, I had to microwave it)
In a pot, heat brown sugar and cream to a full rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Beat in powdered sugar until smooth.
Drizzle warm icing over biscuit cups. Insert 1 craft stick if you want into center of each biscuit cup.
These biscuits were awesome. They tasted like apple fritters but better because the apples and cinnamon was incorporated throughout. It also may look like it's overly sweet but it was surprisingly not. It was the perfect balance!
