This classic combination of apples and caramel comes together in a warm, old-fashioned dessert just for two.


  • 2 Pillsbury® Oven Baked frozen buttermilk biscuits   
  • 1/2 teaspoon melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup caramel topping
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, sliced
  • 1/4 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed


  1. Bake biscuits as directed on bag; place on a wire rack. Brush tops with melted butter.
  2. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over biscuits.
  3. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat caramel topping over medium heat just until warm. Stir in apple; cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apple is crisp-tender.
  4. Split warm biscuits; fill and top with apple mixture. Top with whipped topping.
