Caramelized Apples with Goat Cheese Crescents

Happy Monday friends! I think it’s about time I started sharing apple recipes with you this season. Right? Just one apple crisp recipe is not cutting it for being October already. I’ve had a late start with my fall baking as I travelled quite a bit the past few weeks. But I fixed that this weekend as I picked up over 15lbs of apples from a local orchard and broke open a few cans of pumpkin for a fall baking fiesta. Be warned (or get excited!!), we have a lot of apple, pumpkin and pear recipes coming up the next few weeks.

These crescents filled with caramelized apples, goat cheese and maple syrup were the first things I made. They are the perfect bite sized appetizers if you are entertaining and have all your season’s favorite spices. Pillsbury crescents are filled with spiced apples caramelized in brown sugar, topped with goat cheese and drizzled with organic maple syrup. Simply delicious!

I love using pillsbury crescents to make starters because the flaky, soft dough is just perfect to wrap anything in and as a carb-lover, it’s pretty much a dream come true. These caramelized apples with goat cheese crescents are especially special because of the tender apple pie filling combined with slightly tangy goat cheese. You will love it!!
