You guys know apple pie and IT Guy. He's all over anything that has to do with apples or pies so when I made this little ditty he was all over it as well. This is so easy and is perfect for a dessert or to serve at a brunch. break out the ice cream or the whipped cream for this dish because you're going to need it.

2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Arrange the bottoms of the croissants in the prepared pan.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the 1/2 cup heavy cream, the apple butter, eggs and cinnamon. Whisk until smooth.
Pour half of the apple butter mixture over the croissants in the pan.
Spoon half of the cooked apple mixture over the croissants.
Place the tops of the croissants on top.
Pour remaining apple butter mixture on top of the croissants then the rest of the cooked apple mixture.
Press down on the top of the croissants with a spatula to help submerge them in the liquid.

Drizzle over warm casserole.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
