These Caramel Apple Crescents are perfect for Fall. Nothing says Fall like apple and caramel... a terrific breakfast treat that bakes in 15 minutes.
I used a Granny Smith apple.. I like the way the flavor of the tart apple mixes with the sweetness of the caramel.... my taste tester thought a sweeter apple would be better.. so you decide.. use whatever you like.. if you decide on a sweeter apple.. a Golden Delicious would be a good choice.
You won't need the whole apple... so let you little helpers munch on the remainder.
Don't be tempted to use more than a teaspoon of caramel topping in each crescent.... as it is it will run a little... trust me the flavor of the caramel will melt over the inside of the crescent.
Use Hershey's Caramel Topping in the jar... it is a bit thicker than those in a squeeze bottle.
Speaking of running a bit... it's inevitable... so when they come out of the oven be sure to take them immediately off the baking sheet.... and use a good non-stick baking sheet... next time I will also try making it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet...
You use very little butter for these... 1 tablespoon butter melted is plenty.. so use the real thing.. the flavor can't be beat.
I make up a batch of Cinnamon Sugar and have it in a small jar... it's far more economical than buying a ready made mix. Click here for the recipe. I didn't use much to top these... maybe about two teaspoons...
Hope you enjoy these!
