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!

  1. You know I’m eating this entire bread, right? Yeah, no sharing on this one!

  2. This looks delicious and seems to easy to make. I wish I could eat it right now! Thanks for sharing.

  3. 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 ;-)

  4. It sure looks darn good, I could see how having that lying around would spell trouble!

  5. It looks really good! I want to make it for tomorrow’s potluck at my office. but do you have any substitute for the layers biscuits? can i just use… bread…for example?

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.

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 : )

  39. I love your writing , especially when describing food, it immediately sends me into a cooking frenzy (which isn’t so practical as it’s close to midnight here…).

  41. Oh yum! This was amazing and then you poured on that glaze….heaven!

  42. I saw you last weekend and you can afford a few carbs. You looked GREAT!
    Life is short—indulge!

  43. Holly molly this looks incredible. Another superb recipe. I would love to make this right now…too bad I don’t use the store bought biscuits but I am sure I can make my own :-) I love all of the cinnamon in this. I am sure you kitchen smelled heavenly!!

  44. I just had a vision of myself eating that whole loaf. Singlehandedly. So good.

  45. Seriously – I don’t think I would have been able to resist this!

  61. 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!

  62. 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.

  63. 5 stars
    I KNEW this was going to be delicious, so I made two loaves for a movie party. It got rave reviews and everyone asked about the recipe! They were surprised it was so easy. Thanks so much for sharing. <3

  64. Oh my, this is ridiculous. I loveeeeeeeeeee biscuits, this recipe is just genius.

  65. This is genius!!

  66. Oh, this looks really nice :D perfect for the next brunch or comfy breakfast – even without the glaze :)

  67. Genius!! So want to try these!!!

  68. Okay, my next grocery trip, I`m getting some pillsbury cans. This looks amazing, I feel like I could taste this already!

  69. Oooh! Yummy!. I’ve a crock pot caramel/dulche de leche recipe I think I’ll pair this with for a work event. Thanks

  70. I love easy recipes!!! Totally gonna try this for the upcoming holidays! :D And the pictures look amazing.

  71. Cindy in Kansas says:

    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.

  72. 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!

  73. im making this as we speak how long can u freeze it im making several loaves

  74. I’ve never frozen it, so I’m not sure how well it would hold up, but you can certainly try.

  75. Only one apple? Can you use more or is that going to throw off the taste?

  76. It would be a stretch to fit in more than one apple between the pastry layers. But, if you slice it very thinly, you may be able to fit more than one.

  77. 5 stars
    This was nummy! I squeezed in additional apple slices which was a good idea.
