To earn a name like “crack” in the food world, the food’s gotta be more than good. It needs to be so irresistible that even the most self-controlled people can’t help themselves around it. Our newest crack recipe is the most dangerously addictive recipe you’ll eat this fall.
The recipe is very similar to our Maple Bacon Crack, which was inspired by the Pinterest trend last year. Because the world was as crazed about it as we were, we decided to up the ante this year and go hard on autumn. So this has everything you love — apples, caramel, cinnamon-sugar — all on top of a sheet of Crescent roll dough. YEP, the buttery Pillsbury kind. It’s caramelized, crispy, and slightly doughy all at once. Good luck saying no to a second piece.
All you need to do is roll out a tube of Crescents and pinch the seams to make one sheet. Top the whole thing with brown sugar, then add an even layer of chopped apples over it. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar, lightly drizzle with caramel (this is important: too much and you’ll deal with a sticky mess), and bake until the crescent is golden.
Your kitchen will smell like an apple pie … on crack. As tempting as it will be to eat it right away, you really want to let it come to room temperature before breaking into pieces. Like most good things in life, it’s worth the wait.
