LENEXA, KS, Aug 08, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --

The neighborhood's sweet tooth is calling this summer and Applebee's is answering with its new Cinnamon Apple Turnover, a delicious dessert starting at $5.99.

Applebee's Cinnamon Apple Turnover features fresh, crisp cinnamon-spiced apple slices in a buttery caramel sauce, all tucked into a hand-folded savory, sweet crust and finished with a drizzle of honey cream cheese sauce, then served warm with a side of vanilla ice cream for a true Americana experience.

"We are continually improving Applebee's menu with new items," says Chef Shannon Johnson, executive director at Applebee's. "And that includes looking at our entire menu -- everything from appetizers to desserts."
