Simple Thanksgiving Recipes Using Crescent Rolls

November 18, 2016

Do you love crescent rolls and pie? These three simple recipes combine the two together for a quick, easy, and tasty treat – perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any time of the year.

 

Each recipe takes around five minutes to prepare and 10-12 minutes to bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, for a total time of 15-17 minutes. Each recipe yields approximately 8 separate rolls, which are great right out of the oven or at room temperature.

 

These quick and simple rolls are perfect to make to take home during the holiday breaks or make for yourself and friends while finishing up your semester. If you live in Guadalupe Hall and choose to make these while on campus, you may use the ovens and kitchens in Curry Hall or Eddy Hall.

 

  1. Apple Pie Rolls

You will need:

  1. A baking sheet (I used a pizza sheet for all three recipes instead!)

  2. Brown sugar

  3. Cane sugar

  4. Ground cinnamon

  5. Butter

  6. Crescent rolls

  7. One Granny Smith apple or one apple of your choice

  8. A measuring cup

  9. A couple of bowls (for the butter and sugar/cinnamon mix)

  10. (Optional) whipped cream or ice cream

Instructions:

 

Step one: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease the baking sheet with either butter or a non-stick spray. I personally like to use a coconut oil no-stick spray.

Step two: Mix together ¼ cup of cane sugar with ¼ cup of brown sugar. Then add two tablespoons of ground cinnamon.

Step three: Melt 3 tablespoons of butter. This takes about 30 seconds to accomplish with a microwave.

 

Step four: Cut the apple into eight slices.

Step five: Open the crescent rolls and arrange them on the baking tray.

Step six: Spread the melted butter on the flattened dough in a thin layer. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mix over the butter.

 

Step seven: Place one apple slice on each of the triangles of dough. Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mix on top of each apple.

Step eight: Roll up the dough to make the crescent shape.

Step nine: Add more melted butter to the top of the rolls. Sprinkle more sugar/cinnamon mix on top of the rolls to your liking.
Step ten: Bake the rolls for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, or until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

(Optional) Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
