Apple Crescent Braid

apple crescent braidI recently picked up some crescent rolls on sale.  I managed to hide them from the teens who could eat an entire container per boy.  I originally planned to make a breakfast pizza with them, but the idea was pooh-poohed by the general populous of our house, so I made dessert instead. Apple Crescent BraidFor some reason, no one in the house ever complains about dessert, go figure!   I needed something quick and was too tired to make anything from scratch.  I went to the pantry and grabbed a can of pie filling.  Here is the result.  The kids said it tasted a lot like toaster strudels, which I guess it was, only fit for one giant, or a family.

I think this would be great with just about any fruit, added nuts and raisins, or whatever sounds good to you!  Apple just happens to be my family’s favorite flavor as a whole.  Some individuals prefer cherry and others like blueberry, but everyone agrees that apple is good.
