Ingredients

  • cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp softened butter
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 8 oz can crescent rolls
  • 1 medium banana
  • ¼ cup English toffee chips
  • Icing:
  • ½ cup prepared dulce de leche or caramel ice cream topping
  • 2 oz softened cream cheese
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup toasted pecan pieces

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9" round baking dish or pie pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small mixing bowl mix together the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon.
  • Unroll the crescent rolls to form roughly a 13 x 9 inch rectangle. Press the perforations together and roll until smooth.
  • Spread the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture evenly over the crescent rolls from end to end.
  • Cut the banana through the middle lengthwise, then cut into chunks. Arrange over the crust.
  • Sprinkle the toffee chips over the bananas and begin to roll starting with the widest edge.
  • Cut the roll into 12 one inch pieces.Arrange each piece in the baking dish, leaving even spaces between each roll.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until golden.
  • Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat together caramel, cream cheese, vanilla and cinnamon until smooth. Set aside. [The topping pours more easily if heated in the microwave until the consistency of a thick syrup. Heat in 20 second increments and stir until thin enough to spread on top.]
  • Remove from the oven and spread the caramel cream cheese icing on top while warm. Sprinkle with toasted pecans, if desired.

Notes

Dulce de Leche is a luscious thick caramel. It's readily available in most grocery stores in the Hispanic foods section. It often comes in a [13.4] oz can that looks much like sweetened condensed milk, but, it's very different, so, read carefully.
To toast pecans: Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Toast in a 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes.
