Warm apple croissants like you've never tasted before

Who doesn't love a golden, flaky croissant? Better yet, who doesn't love a golden, flaky croissant with a warm apple filling? Whether enjoyed plain or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this treat proves simply irresistible. Go ahead and satisfy your sweet tooth at home with this recipe. You will not be disappointed!  

You will need:

  • 1 large apple 
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Sprite

Here's how:

  1. First, peel your apple.
  2. Cut the apple into eighths and remove the core. 
  3. Roll out the dough and split into eight triangles, although the sections are usually already marked for you! Now roll each apple slice in one section of the dough. 
  4. Make sure that the ends of the pastry dough are closed around the apple. That way, everything stays in its proper place once cooked! 
  5. Melt the butter in a pot. Stir in the cinnamon, sugar and vanilla extract once the butter is melted. 
  6. Once everything is blended together, take the pot off the stove and stir once again until smooth. 
  7. Place your apple croissants in an ovenproof dish. Pour the butter mixture evenly over the croissants. 
  8. Now for the secret ingredient: Gently pour the Sprite over the croissants. This will guarantee a light, citrusy flavor!
  9. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes. Now you can add whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream and enjoy! 

This is honestly one of the tastiest things you can do with apples. But beware: increased risk of addiction!
