These easy crescents taste like a cross between cinnamon rolls and apple dumplings. They are my variation of Pillsbury's classic apple pie crescents. After only 10 minutes of baking time, the apple slices become nice and tender. I love making these for a quick weekend breakfast. With the reduced fat crescent dough (at 90 calories per serving), they also pretty easy on the waistline.

Ingredients
Icing
  • 2tablespoons butter
  • 2tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2tablespoons milk
  • 1/2cup confectioner’s sugar
Crescents
  • 1 tube(8 oz.) refrigerated crescent roll dough(reduced fat)
  • 2tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8(1/4-inch) tart apple slices, peeled(such as Granny Smith)
Servings: servings
Instructions
Prepare icing:
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, gently melt butter and brown sugar, stirring often. Once sugar is dissolved, stir in milk.
  2. Using a whisk, mix in confectioner's sugar. Remove from heat and set aside. Icing will thicken slightly as it cools. (And, any small lumps of sugar will often dissolve while resting.)
Assemble crescents:
  1. Unroll tube of cresent dough onto parchment lined (or greased) baking sheet. Break dough apart into triangles.
  2. In small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over triangles of dough.
  3. Place one apple slice on wide end of each crescent. Beginning at long end roll up dough around apple slice to form crescent roll.
  4. Bake in preheated 375 degrees F. oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Drizzle warm crescents with reserved icing.
Recipe Notes

To make the icing process easier, place it in a small plastic storage bag. Snip off the tip of one corner and pipe the icing over the rolls. IMG_3536
