Apple Pie Crescent Muffins
Apple Pie Crescent Muffins made with refrigerated crescent rolls, cream cheese, and apple pie filling is a quick and easy recipe for a delicious breakfast, snack, or dessert.
8 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls
5 oz. softened cream cheese
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup chopped apples from apple pie filling
2 ½ Tablespoons melted butter
¼ cup sugar
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees and grease standard muffin pan with baking spray, set aside. This recipe makes 8 muffins.
In a shallow dish stir ¼ cup sugar and 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, set aside.
To make the cream cheese filling in a bowl stir together cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons of sugar, and vanilla.
Then, unroll the crescent roll dough and separate it into 4 rectangles. Seal the perforation between the triangles and cut each rectangle in half to make 8 squares.
Place a square of dough on your palm, gently stretch the dough, drop one heaping tablespoon of cream cheese filling in the center, then add 1 tablespoon of chopped apples. Pick up the corner of the dough and pinch them together. Seal all sides and roll it gently between your palms to make the ball.
Brush generously with melted butter, roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and place in a pan (seal side down). Repeat the process with the remaining dough and filling.
Bake for about 20-22 minutes or until the tops get nice golden-brown color. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan.
