Mom Blogger Courtney Caligiuri joins us in the kitchen with her recipe for Apple Pie Crescents! Click here for more.
This finger food dessert has all the flavors of a warm, apple pie. But, one you can hold in your hand. The best part is you don’t need to peel and chop as many apples as a standard pie either, since a little goes a long way.
Ingredients :2 apples peeled, cored and diced (I like Honeycrisp or Granny Smith, but any FIRM apple works well) 6 tbsp. unsalted butter ¼ cup of sugarpinch of salt 1 tsp. vanilla extract ½ tsp. cinnamon 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour 2 tbsp. lemon juice 2 cans of store bought crescent rolls
Method: Using a large saute pan, add unsalted butter, apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, lemon juice and vanilla and bring to a simmer on medium high heat. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes.Remove the pan from heat and allow the apple mixture to cool. Set aside.Follow the directions on your store-bought crescent roll package.Unroll each triangle within the package and place 1 tbsp of filling at the bottom of the triangle.Roll from the wide part toward the thin part of the triangle.Curl ends of the dough to shape a crescent.Bake for 10-12 in a 375 degree oven.Sprinkle top of crescents with powdered sugar.
