Maybe refrigerate the roll ups before slicing?

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.

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.

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.

The grandkids loved them - of course they're full of sugar. Next time, I'll try my own sweet bread recipe as the dinner roll dough wasn't thick enough, at least mine didn't turn out like the picture used with the recipe. Great filling, though!

I made these during morning Thanksgiving time and it was wonderful! We ate them warm and they were just great! The think I had trouble with was keeping them in a nice roll/ Mine didn't look quite so pretty - they were just kind of shaped onto the pan - still tasted good, I just didn't try putting them on my stand I had intended to use ;-)- may hae let my apples sit too long? They were quite juicy when I poured them over the dough?

My family enjoyed this treat. I cut up the apples and mixed the sugar and pie spices first. This let the sugar and spices dissolve into a thin syrup with the apples. As I prepared the crescent rolls, which were another matter, I may use an egg wash to help seal the seams. All in all, They were a hit at our house!! M.L. Richardson

I would not make this again. Do not let the dough come to room temperature...it sticks to everything and hard to roll up. The sugar syrup crystalizes too quickly into a HARD candy in the oven- made it difficult to take out of pan. Pillsbury dough just doesn't taste as good as a sweet bread dough recipe.
