Turkey Apple Croissant Sandwiches

My younger brother got married a few weeks ago. We are all so excited for him! I was responsible for making sandwiches for the Bridal Shower Luncheon. I decided to make these fancy croissant sandwiches - one of my friends shared the recipe with me a couple of years ago. Set up your counter or table in an assembly line to speed up the process if you are making quite a few like I did. 

They look so festive on the platter. They would be excellent for any girl's luncheon or shower. The cream cheese spread is also delicoius on a tortilla or bagel. Enjoy!

Turkey Apple Croissant Sandwich

Cream Cheese Spread:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ C. powdered sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ C. orange juice
Cream all ingredients together until mixture becomes very spreadable.  Any of the amounts may be adjusted to taste or consistency preference.

Slice open croissant and spread with cream cheese spread (above).  Add the following to make a sandwich:

2-3 slices of turkey
4-5 apples slices (skins on)
Provolone or Swiss cheese slice
Green leaf or Romaine lettuce
Red onions, thin slices
Red pepper, thin slices
Salt and pepper to taste, if desired

Note: Golden delicious apples work well because they don't brown quickly so look nice even if you have to prepare the sandwiches early.
