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.

    Oh. My. Goodness. I am in awe and heaven and love this idea. YUM. Much love and must have soon. Like really soon. Thank you – I’ll print in the AM when we’re not watching Jon Stewart. ;)

    These sound delish & easy, my favorite combination. Do you think you could use canned apple pie mix? Or would they get too soggy?

    I made these last night for my boyfriend. They were SOOOO good. And super easy to make. They didn’t come out as pretty as the picture, though, but I can live with that. Also – I used regular vanilla extract so I just about had a heart attack when the frosting turned brown. But it still tasted yummy.

    Just made a batch. Came out with soggy bottoms and the apples were slightly crunchy because I only cooked them for 12 minutes. Still surprisingly good!
