side dish or bake them in a pie, but recently I decided it was the first and most important meal of the day that could use an infusion of fruit. Enter these apple puffs.
To make your own you will need:
1/2 granny smith apple, skinned and slice thinly
1 canister of 8 crescent rolls
4 tblsp of whipped cream cheese
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the crescent rolls in one sheet. Pull apart to form four rectangles. Make sure any seams are secure by pressing dough together. Top each rectangle with a few slices of apple, then a dollop of whipped cream cheese on each, and finally a sprinkle of cinnamon. Roll each and place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake for about fifteen minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup.
The result is a gooey sticky sweet creamy mess. And you won't hear any complaints about eating fruit for breakfast. Well, unless you have a carnivore like mine that thinks he doesn't like cream cheese. Let's just be glad for now my son hasn't inherited his picky eating gene. In the meantime, it means more apple puffs for me, I mean us, to enjoy.
