Recipe: Apple Roll-ups

We've just returned home from a rather traumatic and difficult vacation, and if you want to read the details, just refer back to my last two posts.

I've found myself wanting all the comforts of home in these last wonderful 24 hours since we got here.

I've wanted to stay snuggled in my warm bed this morning, much later than I should.
I've wanted to turn on way too many lights, just because I had power and could.
And, I've wanted to eat comforting, delicious foods.

Speaking of comfort foods, recently I made a simple recipe for warm apple roll-ups that I took to a family business meeting.  You know you have a "keeper recipe" when it is completely eaten in a very short amount of time.

This recipe meets all my criteria for keeping:

It's easy.
It's cheap.
It doesn't require too many ingredients.
It doesn't take long to make.
It tastes delicious.

Yes, it's a keeper.

Gather up your ingredients:

1 apple, peeled and sliced into 8 slices
4 T. brown sugar
3 t. cinnamon
1 T. butter, melted
1 can Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small dish.

Unroll the crescent rolls onto a greased baking sheet.

Brush each piece of dough with the melted butter.

Sprinkle each piece with the brown sugar and cinnamon crumb mixture.

Lay one piece of apple at the wide end of the crescent roll.

Roll up the apple inside each crescent.  Brush more butter on top of each and sprinkle lightly with more of the sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Place into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

These irresistible treats taste just like mini apple pies.  Each recipe makes 8 so I bought 2 tubes of rolls and 2 apples and made 16 roll-ups.  I had a good feeling that a single recipe would leave us wanting more, and I was right about that.  They are goo-ooo-ood!

Take these along with you to your next gathering.  I guarantee folks will be wanting your recipe.
