Apple Croissant 🍎🥐 Trust me… It adds the most amazing complexity and it just works…also, happy V day!

I used a 6.5 inch cast iron skillet to serve 2, but you can easily use an 8 or 10 inch one because I had some leftover apple, just add another croissant to cover the top.

If you love apple desserts, you have to try my Apple Caramel & Brioche Pudding!

Why You’ll Love Apple Croissant

Apart from being absolutely delicious, it’s super easy to make! Every time I make apple desserts it reminds me of the Evil Queen in Snow White lol. The croissant gives it that buttery touch. You do get the natural sweetness of the apple, but the caramel makes it so much better. Trust me… It is EPIC!

How To Prepare Apple Croissant

🍎 First, slice apples really thin and place in a bowl with 3 tbsp cane sugar and 3 tbsp brown sugar, the pinch of salt and cinnamon.

🧈 Secondly, preheat pan for 2 minutes on high. Then, add in 1.5 tbsp butter and the apples. Fry until slightly caramelized, about 7 minutes.

🥐 Thirdly, using a rolling pin flatten out the croissant(s).

🌟 Then, top the apples with the croissant and bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes, check that croissant is getting golden brown and not burning. Let it cool about 10 minutes flipping but not too much or they will stick.

🔥 To a sauce pan add the remaining sugar and heavy cream. Bring to a boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes on medium until it thickens stirring often. Then, turn off heat and add a pinch of salt and remaining butter. Mix well.

🍦 Lastly, using the plate you’ll serve the dessert in, flip it, add ice cream, Gruyère and enjoy!

Substitutions and Variations

  1. I used Gruyère, but you can use your favorite cheese.
  2. As for the apples, I used pink Cripps but you can use your apples of choice!

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Soak the apples in salted water for 5 minutes so they don’t turn brown.
