This morning it was minus 28 degrees Celsius. The parking ticket machine was so frozen it wouldn't accept my coins (not that I was complaining - free parking!). Needless to say I had quite the chill when I got home, so I thought I would whip up something quick to have with tea, and these Apple, Cinnamon and Pecan Swirled Biscuits are what I came up with. This recipe is made easy by the use of a biscuit mix; I used Bisquick. This recipe will make about 1 dozen biscuits.
Apple, Cinnamon and Pecan Swirled Biscuits
4 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
6 tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp cinnamon
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into slices
1 cup + 4 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup pecans
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two 8 inch cake pans and set aside.
In a bowl mix the Bisquick and milk. Turn the dough onto a floured board and using your fingers press out into a rectangle about a quarter of an inch thick.
Sprinkle the dough with the 1 cup of brown sugar and drizzle 4 tbsp of melted butter evenly over the dough. Press a line of apple slices into the edge closest to yourself.
Roll the dough, starting at the edge where the apples are. Pinch the ends closed.
Cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces and arrange cut side up into the cake pan. Press an apple slice in between each dough round and place the remaining apple slices into the centre of the pan. Top with the pecans and sprinkle with the 4 tbsp of brown sugar and remaining 2 tbsp of melted butter.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown and the pecans are toasted.
