Apple Walnut Crescents

A local apple orchard had a cook-off I wanted to enter, so I created these golden cinnamon crescents. They're a snap to assemble with convenient store-bought dough. —Karen Petzold, Vassar, Michigan

    I served these along with a pork roast. My husband said they taste like little apple pies. I made half with raisins, half without (but I tucked the raisins inside). The nuts on top were delicious! The apples inside stayed hot for quite awhile, which makes me think these would be great for a potluck.

    Delicious! My husband and kids gobbled them up. I used half the sugar, and served them alongside TOH's creamy squash soup for a fabulous side! This would also make an impressive dessert!
