Caramel Apple Strudel

How to make the best simple and easy caramel apple strudel - Because this recipe uses crescent rolls for dough, it comes together in just a few minutes and tastes amazing. The filling is sweet but not too sweet because it uses a Granny Smith apple.

Did you ever have a dessert so good that you licked the plate?

And then asked for a second helping and licked the plate after it was gone?

No?

I haven’t, either.

I would never do something so crass.

No way, not me.

But someone I know would, and someone I know did – this evening.

After an especially long “I don’t want to go to sleep because I’m an independent toddler with a mind of her own!” jag this evening, I emerged groggy from Grace’s bedroom.

Before I reached the end of the hall, I smelled baking apples.

Joe wanted to surprise me by preparing a Caramel Apple Strudel for our dessert. Isn’t he sweet?

Our second surprise – the strudel was so good that we ate the whole thing, each slice topped with a scoop of my homemade vanilla ice cream. I know no adjectives worthy of this extraordinary concoction.

How to make the best simple and easy caramel apple strudel - Because this recipe uses crescent rolls for dough, it comes together in just a few minutes and tastes amazing. The filling is sweet but not too sweet because it uses a Granny Smith apple.
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a 10-inch skillet, cook apple, caramel topping and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until apple is tender.
  3. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet. Spoon apple mixture lengthwise down center of dough; spread to within 1/2 inch of edges. Sprinkle with pecans. Starting with short side, roll up; firmly pinch edges to seal.
  4. In a small bowl, mix sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Brush dough with egg. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Make 3 slits 2 inches apart on top of dough.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown.
Recipe Notes

Serves 8, unless you love it as much as Joe and I did. Then it serves 2 nicely.

**Our local supermarket did not have the Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations. That was a bummer. The Crescent Recipe Creations dough is a new product that's basically Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough that's not been perforated to make into rolls. I've never actually used Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough to make crescent rolls. I always use it to make pizza or some other delicious concoction, and I was looking forward to trying out the Crescent Recipe Creations. Anyway, we were only able to find the regular crescent rolls, so we went with them. The results were great, but the perforations came apart a little when Joe rolled it up.

  5. Oh this looks delish! Yum yum yum. I believe you can roll the dough lightly which will help the perferations stick together. Although I suppose if some oozes out, that isn’t the worst thing in the world!

    • Michelle – Joe actually did roll it out a little. The seams appeared to be sealed up, but when he rolled and baked the strudel, they popped back open. You’re totally right, though, that it didn’t hurt the flavor or anything. It was delicious anyway! 🙂
