Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Today my family and I celebrated my Mother and Father’s birthdays.  My father is a few days shy of being 90 and my mother is in her eighties.   We celebrated at my parent’s home in the house I grew up in.  It was a wonderful day and I am blessed that they are both in my life.  They both have health issues, but we were able to forget them today.   My mother asked for apple pie instead of cake so that is what we had for dessert.

Later that evening, I decided to continue with the apple theme and I made some apple cinnamon rolls.  It is a very simple recipe and uses the following ingredients:

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

3/4 cup applesauce

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup crushed candied pecans

1 package crescent rolls

Icing

3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar

2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix te first four ingredients in a small bowl.

Open the crescent rolls and spread out the dough.

Spoon the applesauce mixture in a thin layer on top of the rolls.

Take a knife and slice the dough the long way, rolling up each strip.

Place each roll on the cookie sheet.

Bake on greased or coated cookie sheet for  10 – 12 minutes.

The applesauce and pecans will burst through the top of the rolls.   While rolls cool, mix icing ingredients.  Frost rolls after a few minutes of cooling.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  Did you go to any celebrations?

Simple Chocolate Crossionts

We just got back from a trip up north and came home on Sunday.  When we got home, I wanted to make a simple dessert, but I didn’t have many ingredients since we had been out of town and I had not done any grocery shopping yet.   We were even out of ice cream.   So I went to my “go to” simple dessert.

All you need are these ingredients:

You prepare the crescent rolls as directed, but you just add a sweet ingredient such as a dollop of jelly or in this case, some chocolate chips.

If you do not have chocolate chips, you can use other items, such as jelly, nutella, caramel, etc.  Prepare the dinner crescent rolls as directed, and I recommend adding a minute or two to ensure that they are fully cooked, but not overdone.  When they come out of the oven, I will dust with powdered sugar.

Honestly, it is one of the simplest desserts ever.  What is your simple dessert when you do not have a lot of time to prepare?
