Here’s one sweet way to get your apple a day: cinnamon and brown sugar caramelized apples and flaky bites of buttery biscuit, baked in a skillet and double-drizzled with ooey, gooey salted caramel sauce and icing.
Think of this skillet bake as a hybrid between apple pie and monkey bread that tastes just like a classic caramel apple — but won’t take your teeth out!
Let’s be honest — part of the reason we were drawn to this recipe is because we’re into just about anything we can pour salted caramel sauce all over. You could use your favorite store-bought sauce or try our super easy recipe for crock-pot caramel sauce and add a little sea salt for that salty-sweet combo we just can’t get enough of.
We love the homestyle vibes that the cast iron skillet brings to the table, but any oven-safe pan or casserole dish will work just fine. Whether you’re cooking up these caramel apple pie biscuit bites for an indulgent brunch treat or an appley dessert, the amazing smells coming from your oven are guaranteed to make everyone at home impatient to gobble it up.
