Test Kitchen Tips:

Store extra biscuits in a covered container at room temperature for 3 days or in the freezer for 3 months. Wrap in foil and reheat in the oven to serve.

For warm apple pie sundaes, heat a can of apple pie filling in a saucepan and spoon over scoops of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. Sprinkle each with granola.
