What You Need To Make This Apple Bubble-Up Casserole Recipe?
Refrigerated Pillsbury Grands Jr Biscuits: The Refrigerated Pillsbury Grands Jr Biscuits play a role, in giving the casserole its fluffy texture. These biscuits have a buttery taste and a soft pillowy texture making them the perfect foundation for absorbing the flavors of apple and cinnamon effortlessly.
Apple Pie Filling: The star ingredient of this dish is the apple pie filling providing a luscious fruity sweetness along with a touch of nostalgia. Its convenient ready-to-use nature simplifies the recipe ensuring that every bite delivers a delicious apple experience.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon, with its aromatic notes is a timeless companion for apples. It adds a spiciness and depth to the casserole’s flavor profile bringing forth an inviting sense of warmth and homey goodness.
Butterscotch Chips: What sets this recipe apart is the addition of butterscotch chips! During baking these chips melt into pockets of caramel sweetness that beautifully complement the apple and cinnamon flavors.
Powdered Sugar: To add a touch of sweetness to the casserole powdered sugar comes into play. When combined with milk it creates a creamy glaze that drizzles perfectly over the casserole—offering both visual appeal and deliciously sweet finishing touches.
Milk: Just a splash of milk is all it takes to transform sugar into a glaze that adds richness, to our creation. It helps to achieve a balance of sweetness and brings all the ingredients together ensuring that the glaze reaches the right consistency, for drizzling.
Steps To Make Apple Bubble Up Casserole:
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 350ºF and lightly greasing a baking dish that measures 9×13 inches. In a bowl combine the apple pie filling with a teaspoon of cinnamon to give the apples a warm and aromatic touch. To add a twist incorporate a cup of butterscotch chips.
Step 2: Next chop the apple slices, in the filling into bite-sized pieces. This ensures that every mouthful is filled with apple goodness. Then take your biscuits. Cut each one into four pieces. Mix these biscuit pieces into the apple mixture making sure they are coated evenly.
Step 3: Carefully pour everything into the baking dish spreading it out evenly. Bake it in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until you achieve a brown top and enjoyably bubbly texture.
Step 4: While your casserole is baking, whisk together sugar and milk until you achieve a creamy drizzle consistency. Once the casserole is fully baked, drizzle this mixture over the top as a finishing touch, to your delightful dessert.
To enhance the apple flavor you can try making a homemade apple mixture instead of using canned apple pie filling. Just sauté some peeled and chopped apples, with butter, sugar, and cinnamon until they become soft and aromatic. This allows you to have control over the sweetness and texture of the apples while adding a touch to your casserole.
Using apples also gives you the opportunity to explore varieties each bringing its own distinct flavor and texture. For example combining tangy Granny Smith apples, with Honeycrisps can create a balanced and intricate apple profile. This homemade approach takes the dish to another level making it more special and tailored to your preferences.
