Green Apple Upside Down Biscuits

I finally got around to trying out Pioneer Woman's Green Apple Upside Down Biscuits recipe.  I've been salivating over it for a while now, and it turns out that it is just as delicious as it looks in pictures!  The recipe originally called for pineapple, but Ree (PW) substituted the pineapple with Granny Smith green apples.  I'm more of an apple girl myself, so I followed suit.  Here is the recipe:


  • Pineapple
  • ¾ cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1-½ cup Chopped Fresh Pineapple (I Used Chopped Peeled Green Apples)
  • Biscuits
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ sticks (6 Tablespoons) Unsalted Butter, Frozen
  • 1 cup Buttermilk, Plus Extra If Necessary
*From “Perfect One Dish Dinners” by Pam Anderson.
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees.

Pineapple/Apple: Heat brown sugar and 3 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat to a spreadable consistency. Pour into a 9-inch round cake pan, tilting to coat pan bottom; top with pineapple.

Biscuits: Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt with a fork in a medium bowl. Using a box grater, coarsely grate frozen butter into dry ingredients, mixing quickly with fingertips to evenly blend. Stir in buttermilk with a fork, adding extra droplets of buttermilk over any dry patches, if necessary and mix until dough just comes together.

Turn dough onto a floured surface. With your fingers, pinch dough into 10 rough rounds and arrange over pineapple. Bake until biscuits are golden brown and pineapple topping is bubbly, about 20 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate and serve immediately with vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream.

The recipe did not say exactly how many apples to use.  Well, turns out, three is way too many.  You will need more like 1 1/2 apples.

Right out of the oven.

Learn from my mistakes!!  Let it cool COMPLETELY before you even THINK about turning it upside down.  I let it cool for maybe 10 minutes before flipping it and sauce went everywhere.  The topping definitely needs time to firm before the big flip.

Serve with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream.  Delicious!  It taste like cobbler but better because it's biscuits - DUH!  Adam and I both loved it.

Another "learn from my mistakes" tip: If there is any leftover after you've had a serving or two, make sure, once again, that it is COMPLETELY cooled before covering it.  I did not, and the next day it just looked like a bunch of soggy biscuits, and NOBODY wants soggy biscuits!
