Have you made an apple cinnamon roll pull apart bread loaf yet?? You can really use any flavors you want but this type of dessert is just incredible. I promise it will become your new favorite quick treat.

  • We started this whole refrigerated bread journey with this cheesy garlic pull apart bread. This original recipe was such a hit.
  • It was so popular with spaghetti that we just couldn’t stop with all the other ideas.

Since we had a savory version it was time to integrate some fruit and sweetness. Simmered and spooned in between and on top a can of refrigerated biscuits, it couldn’t be easier.

Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread with Biscuits

pull apart bread recipe

If you know me at all you know that I would likely eat dessert before dinner any day of the week. That is just how it is around here. I don’t like SUPER sickeningly sweet stuff though. Fruit cuts that and gives this great texture too.

There are many varieties you could choose from, I choose Fuji for almost everything. In our fresh apple monkey bread they worked best, so I figured this would be best in this case too.

  • Red are going to be too soft when cooked and will likely fall apart.
  • Granny Smith are quite tart and don’t soften enough for my liking.
  • If I had to choose a close second I might choose Pink Lady.

My choice is a bit more expensive than the others I will admit BUT it is only a few cents in the long run and makes a big difference in the taste and texture. It is worth it even coming from someone frugal like myself, pay the extra fifty cents to make the best of the best friends.

Cinnamon Apples

This might be one of our favorite fresh apple recipes we’ve made in a while. Whether it is Fall and all you want are fruit dishes, or Winter is rolling around and company is coming over, this is always a hit. Once you get the hang of how it’s done you can make savory and other sweet versions too.

It is a cheap dessert you can make multiple batches of ahead of time and pop them in to bake throughout the day. This really comes in handy during Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas holidays when everyone is snacking all day long.

What is refrigerated biscuit dough?

They are made from a stiff dough that when refrigerated becomes even stiffer. It’s usually shaped into a log that is sliced into rounds and can be separated into 8-10 rolls.

You can also get frozen Rhodes rolls and defrost them for 45 minutes, flatten and use those.

How do you make canned biscuits better?

Make an easy monkey bread recipe with fruit or just cinnamon and sugar! Dice up, mix with cheese and seasonings and make a savory pull apart bread in the oven!

OR use frozen biscuits to make this Rhodes monkey bread recipe.

Can you refrigerate biscuit dough after opening?

Only for a few hours, beyond that they will start to deflate and become a weird consistency. You won’t want to use them much after that time period.

The only real “prep” you have to do is to cook down the diced apples, cinnamon and sugar. You don’t want to get SOFT, but tender. Just as if you were sauteeing onions to lose that “bite”, it’s kinda’ the same idea.

You could easily make 2 batches at once too. You’d need 2 loaf pans and double the ingredients but if you have a crowd, or making a Christmas brunch recipe it would be easy to do.

Now if you made homemade pull apart bread you would need a stand mixer, dough hook, yeast, time for the dough to rise and double in size, a medium bowl to add the eggs….. I just can’t in the morning y’all.

THIS is what you get when you’re done!! Don’t scrimp on the apples y’all.

  • Finely dice apples and put into a skillet. Add brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook over medium heat until fruit becomes slightly tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Open your can of refrigerated biscuits and slice each one in half. Then use palms to flatten out into a thinner circle again.
  • Put parchment paper (or use non stick cooking spray) into your loaf pan and line flattened biscuits up in a row inside.
  • Spoon cooked cinnamon apples in between each piece leaving a bit to spoon over the top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  • Take pan out of the oven and allow to cool in pan slightly before serving to pull apart into individual servings.

Is your mouth watering yet?? I bet it is and you’re already thinking of what you should make after this one, well we have it! Our smoker bread is it!!
