Easy Apple Crescents

This is one of the easiest desserts you'll ever make . . .

and you'll be surprised at how well people like it!

Personally, I'm not an apple pie lover, but these little desserts, I like.

Maybe it's because the fruit to dough ratio can be a little skewed.

Maybe I can add as much cinnamon/sugar as I want.

Maybe I'm just weird and there's really no difference between the two!

This recipe is great because you can let little hands help you!  Matter of fact, the little hands can do the whole thing and you can just supervise!  Also, this recipe is easily halved . . .which is what I do a majority of the time!

I like to serve this with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of warmed caramel sauce (actually, I prefer the buttermilk syrup . . . )

Easy Apple Crescents

2 whole Granny Smith Apples
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter
1-1/2 cup Sugar
2-4 tsp. Cinnamon, or to taste
1 can (12 Oz.) Sprite, 7-up, or Mountain Dew

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wash and core the apples.  You can peel them too, but I don't.  Cut each apple into 8 slices each. 

Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. 

Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. 

Melt butter, then add sugar and cinnamon and stir until combined.  Pour  the entire mixture over apples. Pour the soda around the edges of the pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top or use a bit of caramel.
