2 Granny apples
1 cup water
1 cup sugar divided
1 stick margarine
¼ tsp vanilla
8 canned biscuits (Pillsbury buttermilk)
4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core and slice apples vertically into 8 slices each. Cover with water to keep from getting brown while fixing rest of recipe.
In a medium saucepan, mix the water, ¾ cup of the sugar, butter and vanilla over heat, bring mixture to a boil.
Separate each biscuit in half. Wrap biscuit dough layer around a slice of apple, stretching it to slightly overlap and seal the bottom. Place the wrapped sliced side down in a 9×13 baking dish.
Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices.
Mix remaining ¼ cup sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the wrapped apples. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
