Apple Pie Biscuits with Mulled Cider Glaze

Okay, Listen. I've neglected this blog. Badly. It's not like I'm not doing anything, I just needed a kick to get back into blogging. This is where Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Shelly from Cookies and Cups came in. They are hosting an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G giveaway right now. All you have to do is do a blog post about your creative holiday recipe.

 I mean it sounds easy, right? Well, not so much. I had all these amazing thoughts in my mind. I googled to make sure that these ideas have not been done before. My 1st idea was candy icicles. Already done. 2nd was Hot Chocolate Popcorn. Already done, and by Shelly. Seriously! I was getting frustrated.
So, I decided to think about my favorite thing about winter. It has to be Mulled Apple Cider. It makes me so happy. I remember going to Open Houses in small town Arkansas and each store would have mulled apple cider. Really great memories with my mom.

I decided this needed to be in my dish. That's when I came up with this recipe.I was excited because there is not enough breakfast recipes for Christmas and this would be perfect! I googled and guess what! No one has done this before. So here's my winning dish( well or not because I am a bad blogger and use my iphone for pics!) Please don't judge me for that!

                   Apple Pie Biscuits with Mulled Cider Glaze.

Ingredients for the Apple Pie Biscuits.
2 1/2 cups of Bisquick
1 cup of milk
dash of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of vanilla
3/4 cup of apple pie filling.

Preheat oven to 400
Mix all the ingredients in a mixer for 30 seconds or until well blended.
Prepare cookie sheet by lightly spraying
Drop by big tablespoon on the prepared cookie sheet(seriously, big)
Bake for 18 minutes(odd time but that's when mine were done so go with it)

While the biscuits are baking, we'll prepare the glaze.

2 cups Mulled Apple Cider. You will need to prepare this by buying mulled spices and cooking them with 2 cups of Apple Juice over medium heat for 30 minutes. Be sure to take the spices out before adding to the other ingredients.
2 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
drop of red food coloring(optional)
Melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add all other ingredients(except food coloring). Cook for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. It will thicken as it stands. You can add a drop of food coloring to make it have a red tint to it.

Once biscuits at done, drizzle glaze over them and enjoy!
I am so proud of this recipe. My husband and kids both loved it and it's my 1st recipe I've ever come up with on my own. You are more than welcome to follow my blog and hopefully I will start posting more! Thanks so much for reading and hope you enjoy!
