Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread with Vanilla Glaze

Don’t you just want to curl up inside there a live for a little while? Grab a big, doughy layer and wrap yourself up snug with a cinnamon-sugar pillow. Nosh on the walls, layer by layer, for nourishment.

Ahhh, yes. If life could be so grand… and full of carbs! Delicious, delightful carbs.

This is just about the worst thing in the world for my new low-carb life, but I think earns me a ticket to best-wife-in-the-world-dom. Before I could get my greedy paws on more than a few bites, hubby swooped the whole loaf to his office like the unreasonable loving man he is.

Oh, that wonderful, wonderful man…

But really, can you even handle this?! I know if it was in my kitchen for any longer than the VERY brief period it was, I would have had a serious problem on my hands.

Fluffy, soft and doughy layers of Pillsbury biscuit dough coated in cinnamon-sugar and cozied up with fresh apple slices? UH, yes. Drizzled with a decadent vanilla glaze that seeps into every little crevice and makes every bite melt-in-your-mouth amazing? Might as well just be pornography!

Did I really just go there… Oh dear.

Seriously, though, this is not even an option for you. You must MAKE IT and LOVE IT and tell me that it was gone from your kitchen counter in nanoseconds, because that’s just the truth. You’ll see!

There’s been nothing better than this incredible Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread to come out my oven lately, and that ain’t no lie. It’s so easy and would be a fun project to get your little baker’s hands in the mix, too! I know you’ll absolutely love it, and love sharing it with friends and family… if they’re lucky!

For Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread:

Nonstick cooking spray

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    I made one of these a few days ago and went to photograph it for the blog. I took a couple of photos which I didn’t seem to like, so I went back to the prop room to grab a different plate and when I went back to my photography spot, THE BREAD WAS ALL GONE. ALL OF IT.
    It didn’t last a minute at home and I had only had a tiny bit of it. Pure bliss.
    Your recipe reminds me of how I have to make it again and eat it all by myself. No sharing or leaving it unattended with my carb-devouring brothers. Nah.
    I love how easy your recipe is and how darn delicious it looks… I’d eat it all right now… layer by layer. Man, it looks awesome ;-)

    Oh my lands! Georgia…I am in the same boat as you. Baking all sorts of wickedness that I cannot eat. (Just learned I have a severe allergy to dairy, too. Not fair, I say! No cheese? Lord. Help. Me.) Thank goodness for hubbies who can handle the carbs, eh? (Those selfish gluttons. Ha!) Seriously…absolutely GORGEOUS pull apart loaf apple pie style! I bet it tasted out-of-this-world fabulous. Thanks for sharing, girl. Will pin to all group boards! xo

    What a creative and fun use for Pillsbury biscuit dough! I’ve always loved pull apart breads because they’re just so much fun to eat. And the cinnamon-sugar topping on this sounds amazing! Definitely pinning this — and after one bite, I’ll probably need to plead my husband to take it to his office so my waistline doesn’t pay the price : )

    Can I use just regular Pilsbury biscuits if I can’t find the flaky? Will that work and how many biscuits were used? 8? Thanks! Looks good and I want to try it for the weekend!

    • Georgia — October 2nd, 2013 @ 11:21 am

      Yes! I can’t guarantee your bread will turn out just like this, but go ahead. I used 8 biscuits, sliced in half, creating 16 rounds.

    I’m gonna dip each slice of biscuit, and what the heck!, the apples too, in butter first and see how that works out. If it don’t kill me, I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    • Georgia — November 9th, 2013 @ 8:27 am

      You can try it, but the recipe doesn’t call for butter since the biscuits are already plenty buttery enough. Interested to hear how it turns out, though!
