The other day I got an email newsletter from Pillsbury that was showing off some pretty yummy looking Fall recipes. The one that caught my eye was the Apple Biscuits Custards, designed for two. Well, it was just me and Emma here hanging out for the day so how perfect is that?
I happened to have all the ingredients hanging around the house so I dove right in and printed out a copy of the recipe. Being one that never truly follows instructions, I used refrigerated biscuits and cut them into 9 pieces each instead of the suggested 6. Oh, and I did 3 biscuits for 2 bowls instead of 2. The more the merrier right?
For the custard portion I added in extra apple and a big dash of apple pie spice blend. And boy am I glad I did because the flavor would have been a bit bland without it. Next time, I’ll cut the apples smaller so they get done all the way, these were still a bit crunchy.
Once baked they beautiful apple custard cups really do scream EAT ME! EAT ME! We obliged … with a big scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel to boot.
I can’t say this is the best apple custard recipe I’ve ever tried but it’s not bad either. It just needs kicked up a notch with the ice cream and caramel.
