In Scottsdale, Arizona, Christine Campos swirls convenient crescent roll dough with a spiced apple filling for homemade appeal. "The apple flavor is simply wonderful," she reports. "For an extra-special touch, drizzle the rolls with a confectioners' sugar glaze."

"This was extremely easy to make...the time listed is correct; no more than 20 minutes to assemble, so it is great for a quick treat. This turned out great for me and a nice desert for a dinner party if plated (might I suggest a scoop of vanilla ice cream?!?). Or, think about this as an option for a brunch? This would be a hit!"

"They do make a seamless crescent roll dough now, this may help with some of the "leaking" problems."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2010

"Didn't have any of the problems others complained about. They came out just like the photo...wonderfully light and crispy on top, nicely apple pie flavored. I did think they were sweet enough that they might make a better dessert than breakfast, which is what I served them for. Oh, and I added 1/2 c. pecans to apple filling."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2009

"I made these for Christmas morning. They were ok, but not a favorite. Too much syrup and they fell apart when you tried to take them off the pan. Maybe I had a bum batch of crescent rolls, but the rolls did not puff up like in the picture; they stayed quite flat. I don't think I'll be making these again."
