Crescent Apple Dessert

My family loves any dessert that tastes like apple pie, and this one's so easy, the children can help make it. My four grandchildren love helping MawMaw in the kitchen to make treats like this.

    I don't use canned pie filling, I guess I would need to cook fresh apples down for this recipe. Any other suggestions?
