Try this Best Ever Apple Pie Bisquick Shortcake

Today I decided to do something different.

You already know my Strawberry Shortcakes are out of this world, right?

I’m going to share with you my new take on shortcakes with this new recipe for apple pie shortcake.

What I like about this recipe is apples are easy to come by all year long.

Which means you can make this recipe all year round and not have to go picking for your fruit.

I’ve never actually gone picking for fruit.  I guess I do the easy version and by frozen fruit when it’s out of season.


This may be a new kind of shortcake for you.  It’s not a store bought shortcake and it’s not a cake.

It like a biscuit, but not a biscuit.

It’s a shortcake biscuit and has a different flavor then a biscuit.

To give it even more of an apple pie flavor I roll the shortcake dough in cinnamon and sugar before baking.

Baked apples

You will roll out the dough into balls dipped in cinnamon and sugar then place them on a baking sheet.  You don’t want them to stick to the pan so be sure to spray the pan or line it with foil.

Apple Pie Shortcake

To make the shortcakes you will cut them in half and fill them with delicious homemade apple pie filling.

If you don’t have time to make your own apple filling no worries, you can buy apple pie filling and it will be just as good.

Top your shortcakes with ice cream or cool whip and cinnamon.

This is really such a great dessert to enjoy after dinner or around the table with friends and family.
