Crescent Roll Desserts

So, today we are talking Pillsbury Cresent Rolls. I am kinda in love with them. There are about a zillion things you can do to create an amazing little work of art. I developed a simple Roasted Apples and Peanut Butter Crescent recipe that is going to knock your socks off. Just wait until you give these a try. I LOVE the apples and peanut butter combo, it works so lovely inside the crescent dough! This is such a great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen with you. They’ll love to help in all of these simple steps. Enjoy!

Let’s start by thinly slicing your apples into a nice mixing bowl.

How To Make Apple Peanut Butter Crescents

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and large skillet over medium heat. Add butter to skillet to melt. Stir in apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Let cook for about 3 minutes. Apples should not be too soft. Remove from heat.
  2. Unroll crescents onto a large baking sheet lined with a silpat liner. Spread each crescent evenly with a heaping teaspoon or two of peanut butter. Place a spoonful of spiced apples to the wide end of the crescent. Starting at wide end of crescent, start rolling to thin end (see pictures for a visual). Sprinkle tops with sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  3. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes then serve warm.

    My husband will love these since he is a huge peanut butter and apples fan. Do you have any suggestions for making similar without pb for the kids? I was thinking of just the apples or possibly using nutella or biscoff spread?

  2. These look killer! Warm peanut butter apple crescents sound soo good! I love Pillsbury products! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh and I have been loving your instagram pics! Keep having fun in vegas!!

    Almost all of your recipes are super unhealthy. Why would we cook and feed our families this food on a daily basis? Hello, Type II Diabetes. Feeding your family this food – because they are ‘picky’ – will result in obesity and chronic disease. Not to mention the fact that a lot of recipes that load junk food on top of junk food on top of processed convenience foods is somehow real cooking demonstrates how low the bar has sunk for women interested in feeding their families and “cooking.”

    Jackie, why waste your time leaving a rude comment? Nobody is forcing you to make these recipes or feed them to your family. I love the recipes on here and my family is healthy and all of our BMIs are within a normal range. It’s called moderation and being active.

  5. I think everyone needs to realize when they visit someone’s blog/website, that is that persons “home”. Would you go into someone’s home and be unkind, critical or disrespectful? This is Jenny’s “home” and should be treated with respect. If you don’t agree with her, don’t like her recipes, just go back home. Literally, press your home button on your computer and leave. The world wide web is a tremendous place of knowledge and we can all learn so much from it. The one thing that we can’t learn is manners – momma should have taught you that! So that is my two cents!
    Have a fab-u-licious day and Laissez les bons temps rouler!
