Delicious apple pie apples rolled in a doughy croissant and drizzled with caramel. Apple dumpling croissants are a great dessert for Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving. Easy dessert to make with just four ingredients it’s budget friendly as well.
What I love about this recipe is that it takes very little time to prepare. Using canned apple pie, croissants from the can, and a little caramel syrup for drizzle.
Simply roll out the dough and fill with apple pie filling and cinnamon. This is the delectable apples that will be so tasty when you bite into it. Don’t use fresh apples as they don’t bake well in the time that the croissant dough bakes.
Roll out the croissant dough also called crescent dough by Pillsbury. Unroll the dough and separate the sections. Next up fill with the apple pie filling.
Once the dough is rolled out place a little apple pie filling into each. Drizzle a sprinkle of cinnamon over the top of the apples if the apple pie filling doesn’t already have cinnamon.
Make sure to roll the top large part down and the skinny part to the outside of the roll. Now it’s time to bake these apple dumpling croissants.
Bake the croissants until they are a lightly golden brown. Do not let cool just add the caramel syrup drizzle to the top and then serve. These apple dumpling croissants go amazingly with vanilla bean ice cream.
Making these apple dumplings ahead of time? Just warm them up in the microwave. You may also wrap and not bake them just keep in fridge until ready to bake. I just prefer to pre bake them and just warm them then add the caramel syrup.
This why I think this apple dessert is so perfect for Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving. Budget friendly and easy to make ahead or the day of. Serve with a bowl of ice cream and it’s a crowd favorite.
