Apple Cinnamon Bombs

I posted a picture of these delicious Apple Cinnamon Bombs a little while ago on Instagram when I whipped them up as a quick dessert. Well, they were delicious and they were all gobbled right up so we decided we needed to make them again and go ahead and write down the recipe to share with you all! I have had an abundance of apples since Fall due to my weekly organic produce delivery service, Full Circle, so I am always coming up with delicious new ways to use them.

These silicone baking mats are perfect
for making these Apple Cinnamon Bombs. 

This is actually a very simple and easy dessert thanks to pre-made pastry dough. I usually use the Kroger generic croissant triangles for this so I would assume any other similar dough would work. I love these because they can be used for all kinds of things both sweet and savory. I like to throw some leftovers in between two sheets with a little cheese and bake it like a homemade hot pocket. Anyways, they can also be rolled around some filling to make sweet and buttery dessert pastries.

As always, feel free to Chef Around and make this dish your own! You could swap the apple filling for any thing else you feel like trying and it will probably be delicious. Or if you don't mind using a pre-made pie filling you could use any of those as well.

Apple Cinnamon Bombs



1 pkg Croissant Dough
2 Apples, peeled and diced
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp White Sugar
1/4 Tsp Cinnamon, ground


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix together white sugar and cinnamon on a small plate and set aside.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once melted and starting to brown add apples and brown sugar. Cook until apples are caramelized and mixture starts to thicken, about 5-8 minutes. Remove apple mixture from heat and set aside. 

Lay out your pastry triangles on a lined baking sheet. Put a dollop of the apple filling in the middle of the largest part of the triangle and wrap the pastry dough around it. Roll the pastry balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place back on your baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Be careful as the filling will be very hot! Enjoy!
