Wow - that means there is only about 10 weeks left in the year! Went by so quick!
This was a great way to wake up this morning - to have my house smelling yummy and very fall-y. Apples and cranberries and cinnamon - can't go wrong with this. This is out of Southern Living's Our Best Recipes 2004.
I followed this recipe to a T (save the nuts because I didn't have any chopped at the time and was pressed for said time). I thought it was a little sweet for my liking, so next time I would: cut the biscuits out (instead of just dropping them - better presentation) and cut the sugar down to make it more tart.
4 granny smith apples
3 fuji or other tart/sweet apple (I didn't peel them, but that is just me)
2 cups cranberries
1 cup sugar (I would cut the sugar here)
3 T flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick cold unsalted butter, chopped
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 T sugar (I would cut the sugar here)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Apple and berries, combine with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Then stir in syrup. Press into 9x13 greased pan.
Dry ingredients, cut in butter, combine with buttermilk. Knead about 7 times. Drop or cut biscuits on top of apples.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar (and nuts if desired).
Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream or cool whip.
I cut the cooking time a bit (it said an hour). I thought it was done by 50 minutes. This was good, just a little sweet - so I can cut the sugar next time! I hope Brandi enjoys it.
