Chew on This | Apple Walnut Biscuit Ring

So, surprise! You're suddenly going to have friends over for breakfast. Or brunch. Or snack. No problem. It's a cool, crisp day and you want to serve something warm, gooey, fast and glorious. This Apple Walnut Biscuit Ring is a good, easy choice.

One bite. Your friends will silence themselves and concentrate on eating. Which is great because this biscuit ring isn't the most beautiful thing ever presented on a serving dish. No matter, it's all about the taste. 

Apples and walnuts add crunch and goodness.

Preparation and assembly happens quickly. 

Layers of flavor in ring form.

Apple Walnut Biscuit Ring. A take on monkey bread, cinnamon rolls and pull-apart bread. It's not gorgeous. But it is gorgeously good!


Here's the recipe:

Apple Walnut Biscuit Ring

4 T butter
4 ounces cream cheese
1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C maple syrup
1/2 t cinnamon

1 apple - peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 C walnuts - roughly chopped

1 can large buttermilk biscuits (eight biscuits)
1/2 C granulated sugar
1 t cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350℉. Prepare a tube pan by lightly spraying with baking spray.

In a small sauce pan over low heat, combine butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, syrup and cinnamon. Whisk together until melted and smooth. Take off heat. Pour half the sauce into the bottom of the tube pan. Sprinkle half of your walnuts and apples over the sauce.

Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish. Remove biscuits from the can and press each one, all sides, into the sugar/cinnamon mix. Layer biscuits into the tube pan, overlapping each one.

Pour the remaining sauce over the layered biscuits. Sprinkle the remaining walnuts and apples over the top. Place pan into the preheated oven for 25-27 minutes. Remove and allow pan to cool for about 5 minutes. Carefully flip pan onto serving platter and enjoy!
