Apple Pie Shortcake

written by Leanne


 With Desserts being posted today, I felt the need to share an All-Time favorite dessert of our family. My sister-in-law gave me this Apple Pie Shortcake recipe years ago. It is one of the recipes my kids would always look forward to eating at their Aunt Becky’s. We always have the regular pies for Thanksgiving (pumpkin and pecan), but instead of doing an apple pie we make this. The mix of the flaky crust, the melt in your mouth goodness, you really can’t go wrong!


2 Pie Crust – room temperature
7-8 C. Apples
1 1/2 – 2 C. Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
4 Tbsp. Flour
2 Sticks Butter

2 C. Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsp. Butter
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
4 Tbsp Milk

 Spread the apples all over and then sprinkle the mixed cinnamon, sugar and flour over the apples.


Dot the butter all over. Roll out the remaining pie crust and place over all.


After baking, while still hot, mix up the icing and spread over the cake.



Finish by sprinkling cinnamon sugar over the cake. This is great served cold or warm.

Yum yum! I’ve been cooking with a lot of apples and Pillsbury dough recently… I’m glad I didn’t see this!!!! I might have gone even *more* overboard with the apple desserts.

…now I’m craving this.
