These Salted Caramel Pear Crescents, made with store-bought crescent rolls, are a perfect quick and easy fall recipe.
Raise your hand if you like quick desserts.Did you ever have a craving for something sweet but didn’t have a lot of time to whip something up? Yep. That was me the other day. While this craving was happening, I was cleaning out the refrigerator and found a package of store-bought crescent rolls that was about to expire. Well, I killed two birds with one stone. I created these quick and easy Salted Caramel Pear Crescents and used up the package of almost expired crescent rolls.
Pears are a delicious fall fruit that I feel often get overshadowed by the infamous apple. Not fair! Pears are great for eating and baking too! While apples and salted caramel are renowned for pairing up for delicious recipes, I thought I would change things up a little by making a salted caramel pear recipe. Let’s also talk a second about the versatility of crescent rolls. They are just not for rolling up and serving with dinner. From sweet to savory, crescent rolls can be used in so many ways like these Salted Caramel Pear Crescents.
Roll up and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture. Bake until golden brown.
The caramel melts just enough to seep out the sides. The crescents also get a nice crispy crunch from the sugar too. These were a big hit with the family. It was a nice surprise biting into the crescents and tasting the sweet pear and caramel combination!
