The only thing better than this Cheesy Pumpkin Pasta Bake is eating about ten million apple croissants for dessert. A comfort food meal followed by a classic fall staple is a true winner in my book!
But, let’s be honest, I took the easy route and made a delicious pie into a portable, handheld treat. Foods in mini form are always better, right? So say hello to these Easy Apple Pie Croissants!
The name just about says it all. Apple pie filling is enveloped in a buttery puff pastry, sprinkled with spices, and baked until perfection. One bite of this croissant and your taste buds will be wowed by the flaky crust and warm, apple pie flavor. All the goodness of an apple pie, but without all of the prep work. Doesn’t get much better than that!
And guys, these are a breeze to whip up! To make these Easy Apple Pie Croissants, I spread two puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. I spread a can of apple pie filling (I told you it was the easy route!) over each puff pastry. I then rolled it up like jelly roll, cut into slices, brushed melted butter on top, and sprinkled on some apple pie spice for extra apple-y goodness. My motto is that you can never have too much apple flavor! Pop ‘em into the oven and enjoy the scent of apple pie that will waft out of your kitchen.
These Easy Apple Pie Croissants are so delicious and full of cozy fall flavors. And the best part? It tastes exactly like an apple pie, but without all of the work! How about them apples?
