Apple Pie Crescent Twists

These apple pie crescent twists came from my obsession with apple pie. Apple pie has always been one of my favorite desserts. Warm it up, put a scoop of ice cream on top, and get me another slice! These lovely apple pie crescent twists give you all the wonderful flavors found in apple pie such as warm apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon, but it’s half the work of baking and actual pie!

It’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. Using crescent rolls is so easy and almost entirely mess free. Also, this recipe can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less! Who doesn’t love an easy and quick show stopper dessert? I enjoyed cooking with buttery, flaky Pillsbury Crescent Rolls even though I usually prefer to make my own crusts. Whether you are in a pinch for time or just want to whip up a quick and easy recipe, these apple pie crescent twists are the perfect choice and will make her house smell like apple pie heaven.  

I drizzles a cinnamon glaze over the top of these to add a little extra sweetness. They are amazing on their own or served with a side of vanilla bean ice cream. Enjoy them however you wish! 

This recipe is as easy as pie! Let’s get to baking! (:
