Its smooth texture and caramel-like taste, blend so perfectly together with the spices and the fluffy sweet dough.

Makes: 10-12                Baking time: 15 minutes                           Difficulty: easy

INGREDIENTS:

1 recipe of my cinnamon rolls

For the filling:

  • 2 fuji apples (or any kind of apples), peeled and diced(or thinly sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup bare smooth Barney Butter almond butter
  • juice and zest  of an orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

For the topping:

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • granulated sugar
  • cinnamon powder

INSTRUCTIONS:

Prepare dough according to instructions.

To make the filling: In a medium pot over medium heat, add butter let it melt and add diced apples, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and brown sugar. Stir until apples start softened a bit and caramelize.

Lower heat, incorporate the almond butter, orange juice and zest, and vanilla extract. Stir until filling starts bubbling a little bit and starts thickening. It will take approximately 5 minutes. Let it cool down to room temperature.

Preheat your oven to 375 F/ 180 C, line parchment paper in a sheet pan and set aside.

To shape your crescents: My dough is really elastic, because of the flour I use (Cup4Cup).  If you’re in Europe, use gluten-free flour for dough or bread. Cover your work surface with a good quality plastic wrap and then a light layer of gluten-free flour.

Place dough in the center and cover with a bit more gluten-free flour, if needed. Put another sheet of plastic wrap, roll out into a circle about 12 inches in diameter and then carefully peel off the top layer of plastic wrap. Cut into 12 equal triangles. Add a teaspoon or so on each wider end, roll up each dough triangle. Place on prepared baking sheet. Cover baking pan with a clean, dry towel and let the dough rise for 15 minutes. Brush each crescent with melted butter and sprinkle with some granulated sugar and cinnamon powder.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Drizzle some more of that “caramel” like sauce, form the filling if you like.

Enjoy!
