Apple Cinnamon Shortcakes

Sadly, #AppleWeek is coming to a close.  I hope you've enjoyed all the amazing apple recipes that have been shared!  I've had a great time participating and look forward to more events in the future.

We are huge fans of traditional shortcake.  I was very excited to see this fall spin on it.    I made no changes at all to the recipe, and my shortcakes baked in 19 minutes.    I added a drizzle of caramel to my serving, the guys enjoyed theirs with whipped cream.   Thank you so much to the Taste of Home Test Kitchen for this amazing new family favorite!

                        Apple-Cinnamon Shortcakes

  2               cups  all-purpose flour
  2        tablespoons  plus 2 teaspoons sugar -- divided
  3          teaspoons  baking powder
  1           teaspoon  ground cinnamon
     1/2      teaspoon  salt
  1                cup  heavy whipping cream
     1/2           cup  plus 4 teaspoons melted butter -- divided
     1/4           cup  butter -- cubed
  4              large  tart apples -- peeled and sliced
     1/2           cup  packed brown sugar
     1/2      teaspoon  ground cinnamon
     1/8      teaspoon  ground nutmeg

In a large bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, combine cream and 1/2 cup butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2 in. apart onto a greased baking sheet. Brush with remaining butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.

For filling, in a large skillet, melt butter. Add apples; saute until tender. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gently split warm shortcakes in half horizontally. Top bottom halves with apple mixture; replace tops. Serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.

  1. I love the idea of an apple cinnamon shortcake! I don't know why I only make shortcakes with berries and in the spring??? You have opened my eyes to a whole new world ;-)

    1. Right? It made me start thinking of all kinds of crazy things, like a savory shortcake with roasted tomatoes for summer :)

  2. You rarely need to make any changes to a Taste of Home recipe. These sound wonderful.

    1. That's so true, Wendy. I've been a fan of Taste of Home since the 90s and am so excited to be a part of their Volunteer Field Editor team. Lots of our family favorites start with one of their recipes!

  3. Theses sound delicious! It's been nice exploring your blog through Apple Week this week.

    1. Thank you Val! It's been so much fun and I've increased my to-try list significantly :)
