Cook time 10 mins
Yield 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 6 small croissants
  • 5 ounces wedge of brie, rind removed, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 3 tablespoons Smucker's® Apricot Preserves
  • 3 tablespoons glazed pecans*, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • Crisco® Butter Flavor No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • Cinnamon sugar, if desired

How to Make It

  1. SLICE and lay the croissants open. Cover each croissant bottom with slices of brie to cover. Spread with 1/2 tablespoon preserves, sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon chopped glazed pecans and 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar. Cover with top of croissant. 

  2. HEAT large skillet over medium heat. Spray sandwiches with no-stick cooking spray. Place sandwiches, sprayed side down, in heated skillet. Cover skillet and brown sandwiches 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown. Spray tops of sandwiches before turning to brown second side. 

  3. REMOVE sandwiches from skillet. Allow to rest covered, about 3 minutes. Cut diagonally, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired, and serve warm.

  4. TIP: Glazed pecans can be found in the nut section of your grocer's snack aisle.
