Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

I used to think that 70 and sunny in Florida was the most perfect weather but, I'm happy to report that I've fallen in love with fall in New England. September and October have been incredible so far. Not only do I get that "I need to be outside, right NOW" feeling but there's also NO HUMIDITY. A couple weekends ago, Zac and I went apple picking for my birthday. The last time I went was for our first date! Here's the entry from October 25th, 2011: Apple Pie. We tried a out a different orchard, Honey Pot Hill, and had the best time! There was a hayride, a petting zoo, and of course apple cider, and freshly baked apple cider donuts.

We decided to get the small bag for picking and ended up with roughly 12,000 apples. Okay, might be an exaggeration but I already made two loaves of apple bread, this bread, ate five, shared six, and we still somehow have at least ten left. I'm not sure how we got all of our apples to fit in this magic bag, but I'm thankful it led to this Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread.

The "bread" is actually pre-made biscuit dough cut in half and coated with cinnamon sugar. After sticking some apple wedges in the cracks and baking for 45 minutes, you have an impressive fall dessert!
