FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Sure. If you change out the apple pie filling, this will obviously make this a different dessert, but it’s an easy base recipe to use. This bubble up dessert would be scrumptious with any other flavor pie filling. I would leave out the spices though as it won’t go with every pie filling flavor.

Feel free to change it up if needed. Any other flavored glaze would work. Or you can leave it off. It would still be delicious even without the glaze. Maybe switch this up to have more of a caramel apple flavor and drizzle a little caramel onto the top or on each individual serving!
Try adding a scoop of ice cream, some powdered sugar, or some whipped cream on top of each serving of Apple Bubble Up!
This does cook for a longer time than other bubble ups but it is due to all the filling ingredients being on the liquidy side. If you find it is browning too much, just top it with foil for the remainder baking time.
Best served and eaten warm. To reheat do so in the oven covered with foil or in the microwave.
Cover leftover Bubble Up and place it in the fridge for up to 5 days or you can freeze this for up to 3 months.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)
- apple pie filling – if you want to try to make this lower in sugar, you could use a sugar free apple pie filling or make your own.
- light brown sugar – for a deeper molasses flavor, try dark brown sugar. Also, I think there are some light brown sugar substitutes being sold these days.
- salted butter – you could technically use unsalted butter but I think the salted butter cuts the overall sweetness just a bit.
- apple pie spice – use storebought or you can make your own. You can also swap apple pie spice out for cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
- Pillsbury Grands homestyle biscuits – if you want to swap out the homestyle biscuits, go for the flaky style biscuits. I am using a total of 10 biscuits for this recipe. Also, if you want to swap out with cinnamon rolls, you can. I just thought it made it overly sweet but some folks love that so go for it!
- powdered sugar and milk – this is for the glaze that is optional.
HOW TO MAKE APPLE PIE BUBBLE UP
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the apple pie filling, brown sugar, melted butter, apple pie spice, and vanilla until smooth.
Cut the biscuits into 8ths and add to the bowl. Gently fold the biscuits in so everything is coated.
Place the mixture into the prepared baking dish in an even layer.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown on top, the biscuits are cooked through, and it’s bubbly. Place on the counter to cool slightly as you make the glaze.
In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
Pour all over the bubble up and serve.
