Okay, we’ve been talking about the kiddos for the past way too many weeks… We think the Super Moms and Dads who survived the Back to School craziness deserves a little ME time with a little ME treat, and so on this Bacon Friday, we present to you *drum roll please* BOURBON BACON APPLE TARTS!!!
Here’s what you will need:1 Immaculate Baking Crescent Rolls 6 slices bacon (or more… we’d never say no to a wee bit more bacon), baked with brown sugar 3 apples, cored, peeled, and chopped into cubes 1 lemon, juiced ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons maple syrup ¼ cup bourbon, plus 1 tablespoon (we know it’s tempting, but don’t get too carried away!) 3 tablespoons butter ½ cup brown sugar ½ cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
And let’s get the dough rolling!
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray muffin cups with cooking spray. Unroll dough and seal perforations to form a 12×9″ rectangle. Cut dough into 12 squares. Press each square into muffin cups.
If you like your apples soft and gooey, cook the apple mixture separately in a saucepan over medium heat while the dough cups bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Spoon the cooked apple sauce mixture in the baked cups afterwards. We wanted our apples with a bit more crunch, so we baked the apple mixture IN the dough-lined cups for 18-20 minutes.
In large, chilled bowl, combine heavy cream, powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon bourbon. Whip until soft peaks form.
