Croissant Apple Turnovers

 

This is a recipe that my best friend Dawn found online but she tweaked it to her liking so now I am only going to cite her as the source. My daughter likes it so much that she had me make them for her classroom during a heritage feast; even though they have nothing to do with our heritage. Regardless, they were a hit with all the children.

Ingredients;

  • 2-3 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 can croissants
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 oz (1/2 can) lemon Pelligrino soda

Directions;

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X13 glass baking dish. Unroll croissants and cut each triangle in half making a total of 16 rolls. Place 1 apple slice in each piece of croissant. Place in dish and sprinkle remaining apples around (I coarsely chopped these). Melt butter and mix with sugar and cinnamon, pour over turnovers, then pour Pellegrino soda over turnovers.

Bake 35-45 minutes, it will be golden brown. Check to make sure the bottoms are not gooey.

Serve with ice cream if you wish.
