I realize the words baked apple pie and summer don’t exactly mix, but when it’s rolled up in a soft and flaky Pillsbury Crescents roll, it does. Rather than waiting until Autumn for a real apple pie warming up your kitchen, I opted for a summer friendly version that bakes in under 30 minutes and tastes just as good, if not better.
The best part of making this dessert is that it’s easy peasy! All you need is a few simple ingredients to turn a basic dinner roll into a sweet, semi-homemade dessert.
- 2 large Granny Smith Apples
- 2 cans Pillsbury Crescents Rolls (Big & Flaky)
- ⅓ cup sugar
- ¼ teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Peel and dice apples into small chunks, about the size of your pinky nail.
- In a small bowl, mix apples, spice and sugar.
- Unroll Crescents Rolls triangle and spoon a heaping tablespoon of the apple mixture onto the dough. Spread apples evenly.
- Roll dough into a roll starting with the widest edge of the dough and space evenly on a baking sheet.
- Bake 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
- In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Start with ½ tbs of milk and add until you reach your desired consistency. Drizzle over warm apple pie rolls.
