Happy Monday friends! I think it’s about time I started sharing apple recipes with you this season. Right? Just one apple cardamon crisp recipe is not cutting it for being October already. I’ve had a late start with my fall baking as I travelled quite a bit the past few weeks. But I started to resolve that this weekend as I picked up over 15lbs of apples from a local orchard and broke open a few cans of pumpkin for a fall baking fiesta. Be warned (or get excited!!), we have a lot of apple, pumpkin and pear recipes coming up the next few weeks starting with these Caramelized Apples and Goat Cheese Crescents.
These crescents filled with caramelized apples, goat cheese and maple syrup were the first things I made. They are the perfect bite sized appetizers if you are entertaining and have all your season’s favorite spices. Pillsbury crescents are filled with spiced apples caramelized in brown sugar, topped with goat cheese and drizzled with organic maple syrup. Simply delicious!
I love using pillsbury crescents to make starters because the flaky, soft dough is just perfect to wrap anything in and as a carb-lover, it’s pretty much a dream come true. These caramelized apples and goat cheese crescents are especially special because of the tender apple pie filling combined with slightly tangy goat cheese. A combination that I wish I had encountered sooner and one I know I will be enjoying for a long time to come. You will love it!!
Of course, if you are not a fan of goat cheese, you can leave that out of this recipe. Just fill the crescents with the caramelized apple filling. You could also drizzle some caramel over the filling before you wrap it all up. You see why I love the crescents? They are a blank canvas for your creativity!

I am a sucker for soft, flaky crescent rolls and stuffing them with cinnamon, apples and goat cheese sounds like the best thing ever! Love these!
These look amazing! I love the combination of apples and goat cheese! Looking forward to seeing all your other apple recipes with you 15lb haul. That’s impressive! Yeah for fall baking!
Goat cheese + apples sound like a wonderful combination. The buttery crescent rolls just make it that much better.
Buttery crescents make everything so much better!!
Girlllll this post is CRAZY awesome. This is such a fantastic idea. Also, I made your apple crisp this weekend – YUM!!! I’m basically eating it with every meal…which obviously makes every medal 800x better.

HOLY goodness. Those look absolutely DIVINE. I love goat cheese and apples in pretty much anything. I need to find out if Pillsbury has gluten-free crescents for my Celiac family, then I’m all over this recipe!
Thank you Summer!! I agree with you…goat cheese and apples are just great together. I like throwing them in salads too. I know Pillsbury has some GF cookies but not sure on the crescents.
Crescent rolls rock! I’m loving these sweet and savory ones. 🙂 Have a lovely week!
They seriously do!! Have a great week too 🙂
