  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook apples, 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and the cinnamon over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed 30 to 60 seconds or until smooth and creamy.
  • 4
    Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form 6-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like the sun.
  • 5
    Spread cream cheese mixture on triangles. Spoon apple mixture evenly over cream cheese on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring.
  • 6
    Bring each dough triangle up over apple mixture, tucking dough under bottom of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).
  • 7
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and dough is thoroughly baked. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 8
    Drizzle with caramel topping and pecans.

Expert Tips

  • You can prepare the crescent ring up to 2 hours ahead of time; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Add a few minutes to the bake time.
  • Any type of baking apple can be used in this crescent ring. If you like a sweeter apple, try Braeburn or Honey Crisp apples, and for a tarter apple, try Haralson or Granny Smith apples.
