Mock Apple Fried Dough Made With Pillsbury Grands

These are so simple it is disgusting, but so amazingly delicious it is fattening...HEHEHEHE!

Mock Apple Fried Dough


10 medium Macintosh apples pealed and sliced
2 cans (16 bisquits total) Pillsbury Grands Bisquits
1 cup brown sugar
2 heaping tbsps flour
1 tsp. ground allspice


Peal and core the apples, then slice into pieces

Use a chopper and chop until a medium dice

Roll out each bisquit into a 6 inch circle (shown here by my sous chef Sam)

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium size bowl

Preheat the oven to 375 F, and place each circle on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet

Place a generous amount of mixture in the center of the circle, and spread out till almost to the edge

Hayden enjoyed teething on one of the extra apples

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown, allow to cool for 10 minutes, and then dust with confectioners sugar if you desire...I DESIRE! I also would suggest serving with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Some new patterns in the shop!

So, having Hayden and him being so freaking adorable...If I do say so myself...has refired my design fire and I am crocheting like a crazy woman.  Here are the three newest patterns I have just stocked our shop with:

The Turtle Shell Hat (3-6 MOS)

The Blue V Neck Textured Pullover Vest (6-9 MOS)

And last but not least, the Fall Crochet Sweater Vest Pattern for 3-6 Month Old

The big boys have been thankful I am no longer having them model things as poor Hayden has been subjected to, and they are pictured here having a BLAST on Poppy's newest toy!

5 hotdogs of your choice

Preheat the oven to 375 F

Roll out each grand bisquit to about a 5-6 inch round

Score each hotdog as shown, and place on dough

Sprinkle with cheese

Roll starting at the hotdog side

Finish rolling all the way

Place on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet about 1 inch apart

Bake for 20 minutes

Cool for 5 minutes, and serve with your favorite sauce, we, excuse me, I, am partial to honey mustard
