Only 4 ingredients for these Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers!
Crescent rolls are one of my favorite staples to keep on hand. Sure, they are great for bread to accompany most any dinner but they are even better when used for quick desserts like this one.
There are so many things you can make with Crescent rolls and I like to try them all! Check out my Crescent Roll Board on Pinterest, here for lots more ideas.
Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers Fresh from the oven and drizzled with Icing!
I’m cooking for 2 but you can easily increase the ingredients for more.
Simmer your apples with just a tiny bit of butter. I used less than 1 Tbsp. when cooking one Gala Apple. We prefer Gala because it is naturally sweet. I do place a lid on the skillet to create steam and hasten the cooking time.
While the apples are cooking, prepare your Crescent rolls crust. Place 2 crescent roll side by side and pinch the edges together to form a rectangle as seen above. Spread softened butter over the surface and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Scoop an equal amount of the cooked hot apples onto the surface of the crust.
Gently fold over the crust as shown. Pinch the edges together and sprinkle the top with cinnamon sugar if desired. Bake according to package directions for the crescent rolls, which is generally at 375° for 9-12 minutes depending on your oven. Oven temperatures vary.
My icing is simply a mixture of powdered sugar and milk. I didn’t measure, sorry! When cooking for 2, you sometimes don’t need much, like this icing drizzle. My husband said the icing was the perfect consistency so I consider that a success. Just add a drop or two of milk at a time to your powdered sugar and stir until you have it your desired consistency.
- 1 Apple (I use Gala)
- 4 Crescent Rolls
- Cinnamon Sugar
- 2 Tbsp. Butter
- Peel and cut up apple. Place into preheated skillet with 1 Tbsp. melted butter.
- Cook apples until tender on medium high heat, stirring occasionally.
- While apples are cooking, prepare the crescent rolls. Pinch together 2 rolls to create a rectangle. You will do this twice so that your 4 crescent rolls are now in rectangles making 2 crusts.
- Spread 1 Tbsp. softened butter over the crescent rolls (1/2 Tbps. ea.) and sprinkle with Cinnamon Sugar.
- Scoop the cooked, hot apples onto the crescent rolls. Fold over gently and pinch the edges together. Bake according to directions on the crescent roll package, generally at 375° for 9-12 minutes. Oven temperatures vary.
- Drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze. Serve and enjoy!
