Apple Pie Bites for the Dessert Bar

This year for Thanksgiving, I plan on offering my guests a dessert bar, instead of traditional pie slices. That way everyone who wants to, can indulge with several different treats. My idea is to make all the dessert selections mini size, so the choices can be many, without seeming like too much.
I am starting with these apple pie bites. They are simple to put together, and drizzled with caramel sauce, they taste amazing! A lot of these can be made at one time, making them perfect for a dessert bar!

Apple Pie Bites
(printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 16 Apple Pie Bites)
1 large Granny Smith Apple
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
2 packages of Crescent Rolls (16 total rolls) 
25 Caramel squares
1/8 cup Heavy Whipping Cream-warmed


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and core the apple. Slice each of the slices in half, so they are thinner. You will need at least 16 slices. 
In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, dark brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Unroll the package of crescent rolls and separate each piece of dough. Coat an apple slice in the sugar and cinnamon mix. Sprinkle additional sugar and cinnamon mix down the piece of dough. Roll the apple into the dough, starting on the large end.
Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. 
Start melting your caramels in a double boiler. Once they are melted, add the warm cream, just a little at a time. You might not need all of it. Stir the caramel and cream together until they are completely combined. You want the caramel to drizzle off the spoon. You can start the caramels melting at the beginning of the recipe, because they take a while to melt.
Drizzle the caramel sauce over the Apple Pie Bites and enjoy!
These taste great hot or cold, and if you want to offer a dessert bar like I plan to do, you could put the caramel in a mini slow cooker on the table, and let your guests drizzle to their hearts content!

Thanks for stopping by today! I will have more recipes for my Thanksgiving Dessert Bar soon! I hope you will stop back to see them!

Club Baked~Caramel Apple Cake

It is Club Baked time again!! This time we made the Caramel Apple Cake from the book we have been baking through, Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. This cake is beautiful! There is a picture in the book, and it is the ultimate cake. Triple layer, perfectly iced, no wayward crumbs in the icing~perfect! Mine looks nothing like this one.
Take a look.....
This cake is delicious!
It was moist, and easy to make, although time consuming.
 I did make a few changes in the recipe.
Here is what I did :
I made the cake in this pan, so it is a sheet cake.
 I did make the applesauce. Sooo yummy!!
I did make the caramel sauce, but I did not make the frosting.
 
I was going for something a little less sweet, so I 
used the caramel sauce as a topping.
It is wonderful, and you are going to love this recipe!
It reminds me of fall!


 For the recipe please stop by and see Melissa at her blog, Lulu the Baker.
