Ingredients
  • 1 can of Pillsbury Crescent rolls or 1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons – 4 powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 3 Granny Smith Apples
  • 3 Tablespoons Dried Cranberries
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Regular Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted or milk
  • Sugar for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Pre heat oven to 350 F or 180 C.
  2. Unroll and spread the crescent rolls or puff pastry sheets flat then cut in half as the photo below. Try and aim for about 14 cm / 5.5 Inches in width or thereabouts. Place the pastry on a greased baking tray or lined with parchment paper.
  3. Peel, core and cut the apples in to small bite sized chunks. Add to a mixing bowl together with the dried cranberries and squeeze of lemon juice, pumpkin spice and 2 Tablespoons of regular sugar.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the cream cheese and powdered sugar and mix so it is a thick paste. Then transfer to the apple mixture and combine well.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly on HALF of the crescent roll / puff pastry layer, leaving some space at the sides. Brush edges with milk.
  6. Carefully fold the pastry over and using a fork, press down the edges. Using scissors, snip a few holes along the top to allow the steam to escape during cooking. (This will make sure you get a nice crisp pastry). Brush the top with milk or melted butter. Sprinkle with sugar and place in the oven for about 30 - 35 minutes, until golden.
  7. Allow to cool then slice in to bite sized pieces.
