  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 2 1/2 cups White Lily® Enriched Bleached Self-Rising Flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 2 cups Smucker's® Caramel Flavored Topping
  • 2 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts or peanuts, toasted*
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. HEAT oven to 450°F. Spray baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. COMBINE flour, sugar and cream until dough forms a ball.
  3. TURN dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding in half about 3 to 5 times (do not overwork), adding just enough flour to keep from sticking to your hands.
  4. ROLL out dough gently to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut dough into biscuits using 1 1/2 inch football shaped cookie cutter coated with flour. Reroll and cut as needed.
  5. PLACE biscuits about 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Make cuts using sharp knife in top of each "football" to resemble laces, being careful not to cut all the way through dough. Brush with melted butter.
  6. BAKE 10 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. STIR together caramel topping, apple, nuts and butter. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) 1 mintue or until caramel is melted and heated through. Transfer to fondue server or warming server. Serve with biscuits.
  2. *To toast nuts: Place nuts in dry nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned.

Baking Tip

Remove pastry from refrigerator 1 hour before rolling or shaping to avoid excess handling.
