Apple Cinnamon Biscuit Muffins

Melissa Sperka


I love to bake, that's no secret! At times, I'm also equally happy to reach for a convenience item to help keep the stress level down at the start of a busy day. These biscuit muffins, are just another twist and use for frozen biscuits. After making these once, my family now asks for them regularly!

15 Min


butter flavored frozen biscuits [i used grands!]
1/2 c
apple jelly [i prefer Smucker's]
1 stick
butter, melted
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 Tbsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 c
powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp
half & half
1 tsp
clear vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 8 cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. Thaw the biscuits in the microwave on 50% power. Or, if you're planning ahead to make these, simply thaw them in the refrigerator tightly covered overnight. On a small plate, mix together the cinnamon and sugar until combined. Dip each thawed biscuit into the melted butter then sprinkle all sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Place each biscuit into a muffin cup, and press gently into the cup. Make a deep well in the center of each using your thumb. Into the well, drop 1 teaspoon of apple jelly. Bake at 375 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until golden. While the biscuits are baking, mix together the glaze. Stir together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of half & half and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until all of the sugar has dissolved. Remove the hot biscuit muffins to a serving platter and sprinkle with additional cinnamon sugar, if desired. Drizzle with glaze and serve hot.
Cook's note:
The apple jelly will melt but the flavor will infuse into the center of the biscuit top. As the center of the biscuit rises, some may escape. Make sure your oven is lined with aluminum foil just in case it drips from the pan. Also, the glaze is easily doubled, make more if you like lots of glaze on your biscuit muffins.
