The kids went coo-coo over this, well okay... so did I! It was so easy to make, the boys did all the fixins and then we all got to enjoy it together. They had so much fun making these and felt good about helping in the kitchen.

It is so exciting to see them in the kitchen, checking out labels and being aware. We are certainly having fun in our kitchen trying new things. I hope you enjoy! This is truly the next best thing to a piece of warm apple pie and a scoop of ice cream! Not only is it delicious... it's pretty guilt free and would go well for dinner parties!


  1. Ooh, we have some bruising apples that I need to use and I happened to by said crescent rolls this week - this may be a nice treat for our snowed in weekend here in VA.

  2. It would be a perfect treat by the fire wrapped in a snuggie :) Stay warm, snowed in, I couldn't even imagine! TX just doesn't see much of that!

  3. Where did this recipe come from? It looks like a HG? And looks soooo goood!! Im totally making this!!

  4. This is just something I played with in the kitchen and boy oh boy, turned out good!
