Apples in a Blanket

During Canning Week, I canned LOTS of apples....a couple of bushels worth actually. One of the things I canned was Apple Pie Filling. I snagged the recipe from Ott,A. The funny thing is, I don't even like Apple Pie. It's almost un-American. I know. I love the apples, just not a fan of pie crust. So now that I have jars and jars of pie filling, what am I going to do with them?

Back in my mom's Pampered Chef days, I remember her making something called Apple Braid. I can't remember the recipe, but I think it used crescent rolls. Because I'm too lazy to google and I didn't have any crescent rolls, I decided to just wing it.

What you'll need:

A jar of apple pie filling
1 can of biscuits
A couple tablespoons of flour
melted butter

Preheat oven to 375. Open up the can of biscuits and work them into one big dough ball. Work in about 2 tablespoons of flour to make it easier to work with. Roll it out to a circle-ish form.

Dump the jar of pie filling in the middle and pull the edges up to the middle and press them together. It will kind of look like a football.

Bake for 15 minutes. Take out of oven and brush the melted butter on. Put back in oven for 3 minutes, or until golden brown all around.

Take out and let cool, slightly, then cut into slices. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Don't you just love winging it in the kitchen sometimes? I'm usually a very "by-the-recipe" kind of gal but every once in a while I get crazy and do my own thing. I think the biscuits and apples look yummy!

I have frozen apple turnovers before, and they were yummy treats to find later in the year! I like the simplicity of this recipe! I type this as I think of all my apples still on the tree!

I've gotta go check on my apple tree. This recipe looks so easy, just the thing to make as the weather cools. :-)
