    • Cooking spray (with flour in it)
    • 3 cups apples, peeled and diced small
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • ⅓ cup reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light
    • ¾ cup brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoon water
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 (12 oz each) cans Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits or Pillsbury Golden Layer Buttermilk Flaky Biscuits (100 calories for each biscuit)


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a Bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. In a microwave safe bowl, toss together chopped apples, 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Cook for 2 minutes to soften.
    3. In the meantime, in a pan, melt butter, brown sugar, water and vanilla. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and cook for 2 minutes. Stir often. Set aside.
    4. In a large bowl, blend 3 tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.
    5. Quarter each biscuit from 1 package and roll each piece in about half the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place biscuit pieces layered evenly in Bundt pan. Spoon ½ of cooked apples evenly over the biscuits. Spoon ½ of cooked sauce over the apples and biscuit pieces.
    6. Quarter each biscuit from the 2nd package and roll each piece in remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place these remaining biscuit pieces layered evenly in Bundt pan. Add remaining cooked apples evenly over top of biscuits. Spoon remaining ½ of cooked sauce evenly over apples and biscuit pieces.
    7. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Let sit for about 5 minutes. While still hot, carefully loosen sides and middle of pan. Invert onto a serving plate.
    8. Serve warm. Slice into 16 slices and let everyone pull their slice apart to eat.
    9. Makes 16 servings (It’s so decadent tasting 1/16 of the recipe is very satisfying)
