To make them,  I used a glass jar to flatten the biscuit dough and a water bottle cap to cut the middle out of each donut.   Apples go perfectly with caramel.  I couldn’t wait to drizzle caramel sauce over those bad boys.  I way prefer caramel over any flavor (yes, chocolate included) but the crazy thing is that I hadn’t ever made my own homemade caramel sauce until now.
