Don’t be fooled by the ingredients. The Crescent rolls stuffed with apple, cinnamon sugar and Mountain Dew does something similar to magic in the pan.
The apple is the queen of autumn foods and you can make miracles with it. If you share my love for anything made with apples, then this cinnamon-apple-crescent roll fantasy is exactly what you need to try.
I made it for the first time and we were charmed by the taste. The smell of cinnamon and apples is what characterizes this simple dessert that melts in your mouth because it is soaked in apples and their juice.
I believe that a combination with pears or peaches would also be fine, and if everything is served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, mmmmm … Ah-mazing !
