Did you know October is National Apple Month?
To celebrate, I procured a package of crescent roll dough this weekend and doctored it up to make these amazing, apple-pie-esque pockets of sweet and gooey goodness.
Warning: You may have to eat them with a fork, because they’re a little messy.
Apple Crescent Rolls
For the rolls:
- 2 apples, peeled and sliced
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 4 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 container crescent dough
For the topping:
- 2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
Pre-heat oven to temperature specified on crescent dough package.
In a large sauté pan, place 3 Tbsp butter, sliced apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Allow to simmer for 5-10 min on medium heat, till butter and brown sugar have melted and apples are soft.
Peel crescent rolls apart where dough is perforated. Place a few cooked apples in the center of each roll. Roll up gently. Place each roll on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Rub about 1 tsp of butter on top of each roll. This will help the cinnamon-sugar topping stick.
Mix the cinnamon and sugar for the topping together and sprinkle the mixture on top of each roll.
Bake rolls according to package instructions.
