  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • While the biscuits are toasting, in a medium saucepan, melt 1⁄2 cup butter and add brown sugar and cinnamon. Add apples and mix until completely coated. Reduce heat to medium low, stirring once in a while until the apples are completely cooked, about 10 minutes.
