I got this recipe from a friend when I visited her a few years ago. When I made these, I didn't have a regular muffin pan, so I made them in mini loaf pans. They are a huge hit with coffee for breakfast.

    Flatten each biscuit into a 5-in. circle. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle a rounded teaspoonful of sugar mixture over each. Top each with ¼ cup apple mixture. Bring up edges to enclose mixture; pinch edges to seal.
