Like I mentioned earlier this week, we accidentally came into a bunch of apples of late (and thank you to our apple donors, we love you!).
So, I decided an apple dessert was in order. After all, it is fall.
Since I am neither a fabulous cook nor a creative genius in the kitchen I just had to go with something simple. I decided to make a delicious batch of apple crossovers. They were pretty yummy.
Here's what I did.
1. I diced up four medium sized apples. Then I stirred about 1/3 cup of sugar into the bits (be sure to stir it well so every piece gets coated). I then added 2-3 Tablespoons of flour (I'm not sure exactly how much, just enough to thicken up the juices of the mix). I was left with something that looked like this. It was sweet and crunchy and good.
2. Next I pulled out two packages of refrigerator crescent rolls. I placed a dollop of apple mix in the center of each unfolded crescent and then folded the three sides in to cover the apple. It looked like this.
3. Then I drizzled some melted butter over the rolls (what doesn't taste better with a bit of butter?) and popped them into the oven for about 20 minutes.
4. When they came out, and while they were still hot, I mixed up a simple glaze made from powdered sugar and milk (mix the two together to the consistency you like, I honestly didn't measure so I don't know how much of each...it should be thin but not watery).
5. Let these cool for a bit and then serve them. They were a sweet finish to dinner that night (and we don't do dessert that often so it was a special treat!).
And involving fruit which makes it healthy, right?
Ok, maybe not that last one. But still tasty.
