Now that we are in September it is time for fall recipes. Apple is what I’m thinking of and I will be sharing apple recipes this week. This apple pie croissant French toast is the perfect way to enjoy some fall flavors for breakfast.

The French toast itself is just the normal way I make French toast when using croissants for the bread. I like to check the day old section of the bakery for croissants when making them into French toast. The apple topping you top this with is where the magic come in. You cook 5 sliced apples that have been tossed with a little lemon juice in a skillet. They are cooked with some butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and cornstarch.

The apples get soft and release their sweet juices to help made a sugary cinnamon sauce. I was able to enjoy this croissant French toast topped just with the apple topping and whipped cream. However, if you need it, you can always add a drizzle of maple syrup too.
