Apple and bacon tartlets with caramel drizzle

Apple, Bacon, caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Yup, that's right.  I put them all together in one delicious bite.  And it was AMAZING.  It was a little creation I came up with after seeing all of the apples my family came home with from the orchard.  So easy, so yummy.  And with a hot caramel drizzle, it makes the perfect dessert!  Thank you, Werther's!

Take a few slices of bacon and bake it on a cookie sheet for about 10-12 minutes at 400*.  While that's cooking, I take a can of biscuit dough and slice each biscuit in half.  Then I slice it open to make a little pocket.  I take a smear of cinnamon cream cheese and spread it inside the pocket. I take my apples, slice them up, peel them, and toss them in a bowl with cinnamon and brown sugar.  Then I take a few slices and stuff each pocket with them. 
 When the bacon is cooked, I let it cool and chop it into small pieces. I then add enough bacon to each pocket for my liking. More if you are a bacon fan, and less if..... wait, is there anyone who ISNT a bacon fan???? Stuff it full of BACON!!!!  Then I close up the pocket, sealing each edge closed. 

I sprinkle each pocket with a little more brown sugar and cinnamon.  Then I bake them at 350* for about 10-15 min, when they are golden brown, I take them out of the oven. 

While they are baking, I take my Werther's baking caramels, unwrap them, and toss them in a small sauce pan with a tiny bit of cream. 

I used a salted caramel creamer today, but you can use regular cream, also.  2 Tbsp is usually enough cream for a whole bag of Werther's.  Cook it on a low heat, stirring every 2-3 minutes.  It takes a while to get melting, but once it starts to melt, it gets soft pretty fast. Melt until its nice and creamy.  Then I use my stirring spoon to drizzle the caramel over the bacon apple tartlets. 

Serve warm.  It would also be an awesome dessert served hot, over vanilla ice cream.
