Gooey Caramel Apple Pull-Aparts

Lisa McDaniel of Illinois won the 2006 Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest with the recipe.

4 pecan crunch crunchy granola bars (2 pouches from 8.9 oz box), crushed (3/4 cup)

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

2 cans (17.5 oz each) Grands refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing

1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, coarsely chopped (1 1/4 cups)

1. Heat oven to 350. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan (bundt pan) with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix crushed granola bars, pecans and 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture evenly in the bottom of pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix whipping cream, brown sugar, and remaining 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Separate both cans of dough into 10 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into quarters. Stir roll pieces and apples into whipping cream mixture to coat. Spoon mixture into pan; spread evenly.

3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until deep golden brown. Immediately place heatproof serving plate or platter upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over (do not remove pan). Cool 5 minutes. Remove pan; scrape any remaining topping in pan onto coffee cake. Cool 5 minutes longer. Drizzle reserved icing over top. Serve warm.
