I made these simple Apple Dessert Pastries last year and my whole family absolutely LOVED them. Like, they were legit gone in two minutes. I loved them too, not only because they were tasty but because they were hilariously easy to make. I used store bought Pillsbury Crescents because they're accidentally vegan and way simpler than making my own pastry dough. If you're a lazy chef like me, definitely try this recipe out.
Thanksgiving Apple Dessert Pastries (makes 8)
-1 canister Pillsbury crescent dough
-1 Granny Smith Apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
-3 tbs melted vegan butter (try Earth Balance--available at all major supermarkets)
-1/3 cup packed brown sugar
-3 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with baking paper, or grease the baking sheet with oil or Earth Balance butter to prevent the pastries from sticking. In a small bowl, toss the apple slices and the vegan butter. Set aside. Separate the Crescent dough into eight separate triangles. Place on baking sheet. In another bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Divide the mixture among the eight triangles, making sure to spread it out to each corner. Place an apple slice in the center of each triangle. Then, starting at the wide side of each triangle, roll the dough into the apple slice. Top with an extra dash of cinnamon. Place in oven and bake 10-12 minutes or until the apples have softened. Enjoy with a scoop of Almond Dream Vanilla ice cream, or drizzle with homemade Five-Minute Vegan Caramel Sauce!
