Apple Crescent Surprise

My kids eat apples like crazy, but occasionally we end up with a few left at the bottom of the fruit bowl that have seen better days. Rather than throw them away, I use them to make these delicious pastry treats. I find the ingredients for this dessert are always in my house. I keep the crescent rolls in the refrigerator since I like to have them on hand in case I get unexpected company and can throw together this.

  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored (I use whatever I have in the house)
  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 can (12 oz) ginger ale
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut each apple into 8 wedges.
  3. Open crescent rolls, place apple wedge in each one. Roll up.
  4. Place in 9 x 13 pan.
  5. Melt butter, add sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Pour over crescent rolls.
  7. Pour ginger ale on top.
  8. Bake 45 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

    Difficulty: Easy
    Time: 10 minutes prep, 45 minutes baking

    1. I just made this . The kitchen smells fantastic. I can't wait until it cools so I can taste it. This was such an easy recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    2. Glad you enjoyed the recipe! It is always a hit in our house. I couldn't believe how good and easy it was the first time I made it.

    3. Tasted as good as it smelled! Stan and I even had it for breakfast. I'll definitely make this again.

    4. Whats the ginger ale for?

      1. The ginger ale helps to give it a glazed appearance and taste. I have never tried doing it without, but if you do-let us know what you think.

    5. My daughter and I just made these and they are so delicious. They were so easy to make.

      1. Glad you were able to enjoy some baking time with your daughter! Enjoy!
