When my kids were small I use to make a recipe for Apple Dumplings that are made with canned refrigerated biscuits. I would love to have this recipe since I lost it.

To make apple or cherry turnovers can I use Grand biscuits as the crust instead of having to make pie crust? I just don't want the dough to be to gummy.

I suppose you could, but I just don't think they would turn out the same. To me it seems like the biscuit dough would be courser.

I have made apple, peach and cherry turnovers, using canned pie filling and Grands. I separated each biscuit in half, and pressed each half out as thin as possible without making holes in the dough. Put a spoonful of pie flling on one side, fold over the dough, and press edges together. I use a fork.

Then bake 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees until brown. Let cool 10 minutes then remove from tray and enjoy. You can brush the tops of the unbaked turnovers with egg wash or milk, and you can sprinkle tops with sugar before baking. You can also drizzle frosting over the warm turnovers. I use canned frosting heated briefly in a measuring cup with a pour spout in the microwave and then drizzled over the turnovers.

These taste very good, and are not soggy if baked thoroughly. I tried using one biscuit per turnover, and the centers were soggy when the outside was brown. Hope this helps.

On a recipe for a taco burger bake submitted by Robin of Washington, there is a mention of refrigerator biscuits. Can someone tell me what they are as I've never heard of these in Australia.

They are ready to bake buiscuits found in containers in the cooler section of your store. They are usually found in the same area as your butter and margerine, etc. In the states they come in tube shaped containers.
