Apple Cinnamon Shortcake

Are you craving the flavors of autumn, but not entirely ready to give up summer?  Why not try this combination of apple pie and strawberry shortcake?!

This is a great way to use up the Maple Biscuit Bites you have left over from breakfast.  Or, if you are making a batch just for this dessert, freeze the unused half for the next time you need a quick dessert.

Apple Cinnamon Shortcake


  • 1/2 recipe Maple Biscuit Bites
  • 6 Apples, quartered with the core removed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • whipped cream for topping


Place the apples in a saucepan with the brown sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 cup water.  Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples begin to soften and add the white wine.  Continue to cool until the wine has mostly cooked down.  Remove from the heat and gently mash the apples with a spoon until they are generally in bite-sized pieces.

In each of six bowls, place several pieces of Maple Biscuit Bites.

Evenly divide the apple mixture between the bowls.  Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Delicious - tastes like fall and summer ran into each other!  Don't tell anyone how easy it is to make though.  That can be our secret.
