Criss Cross Apple Crowns
Peel, core and slice apples. Place apples, walnuts, raisins, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl and mix well. Microwave apple mixture on high 3 minutes or until hot. Mix well. Separate 12 biscuits and place on cutting board.
Roll each biscuit into a 5" disk, flouring dough as needed. Arrange biscuits in a single layer on clean, flat surface.
Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of mixture over biscuits. Divide apple mixture evenly onto center of each biscuit; gather up edges over filling, pinching to seal. Microwave butter about 15 seconds or until melted.
Holding each biscuit at sealed end, dip each biscuit into butter, then into remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place biscuits, seam side down, into muffin pan. Do not press down into cup! Using a serrated bread knife, cut through top of each biscuit, making a crisscross pattern.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan.
If desired, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and
drizzle with caramel sauce.
