Apple Crescent Rolls

It's Friday and I have my grocery list ready to go get groceries. I thought I'd share this today so when you go to get groceries you can pick up crescent rolls to make this for the weekend.  It is a simple, great way to use up apples and they are wonderful.  Your house will smell like a bakery.

1 (8 ounce) Original Crescent dinner rolls
1 can of apple pie filling (I’m using 1 pint of my Apple-Pie-in-a-Jar
Butterscotch chips
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pour your apples our in a bowl and pick the apples out by hand and save the thick sugar mixture left.  You can use it in a glaze to finish the apple crescent rolls.

Remove rolls from package and pat out on biscuit board or counter top.  Add about 1 tablespoon grated apple, a couple butterscotch chips, and some chopped pecans. Roll up as you would for crescent rolls and kind of smash ends together.  Dip in melted butter.  Have your sugar and cinnamon mixed in a shallow plate. After dipping in melted butter, roll in cinnamon mixture. 

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until brown. 

You can serve with or without the powdered sugar topping below. 

1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 or 5 tbs. of apple-pie-in-a-jar syrup or syrup from canned apple pie filling
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add a little powdered sugar at a time to the bowl of syrup from the apples. Mix well with wire whisk.  Stop when you know it is runny enough to drizzle over crescent rolls (or you can dip them in the glaze).  If it gets too thick, you can always add a bit of water.

This will be a very busy weekend here with 2 grandsons and lots to do in Maquoketa.  Hope your Friday and weekend is a great.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
