Servings: 8 people
  • 1/4 c. butter melted
  • 1 (8 oz.) can refrigerator crescent rolls
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. suagr
  • 1 T. cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. chopped pecans
Vanilla Icing
  • 1 (15 oz.) can vanilla frosting
  • 3/4 c. milk
  1. Preheat your oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a small bowl, melt butter in a microwave. 

  3. Arrange crescent roll triangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush melted over the surface of each triangle. Sprinkle brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon lightly over each triangle. Sprinkle each triangle evenly with the chopped pecans. 

  4. Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle. Wrap dough triangle around each apple to form crescent roll shape. Brush each crescent roll with remaining butter. 
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool.

  6. Scrape icing into a medium bowl; add milk and mix. Icing should be thin. If needed, add more milk and mix. This will make more icing than you will need so store leftover icing in the refrigerator. Drizzle icing over rolls.
