Country French Apple Crescent Casserole

That title alone is a mouthful, wouldn’t  you say? I have a couple battered, stained, dog-eared, well loved booklets put out by Pillsbury with bake-off winning recipes inside them. You know what I mean, the kind they have at grocery store check outs? Some of these recipes I have been using for years, then again,  sometimes I pull it out and find something new that suddenly sounds wonderful. This is one of those recipes. It has become a family favorite.

I will rename you apple-almond buns!


 So, lets get you started.You need:

  • 1 8oz canRefigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into 8 slices

Place an apple slice at the fat end of a crescent.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream ( I only had half in half and it worked fine)
  • 1 Tbsp almond extract
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • some sprinkles of cinnamon 

Heat your oven to 375 degrees.combine the first cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles and place on a work surface, like cutting board.

Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the rolls, pressing them into the dough gently.Slice the apples, Get ready to roll the apple up, tucking in the edges around the apple, making it as snug as a bug in a cinnamon rug.

Apple ready at fat end of roll.
Start tucking in and rolling up

Now, do this to all the rest of them and place them in either a sprayed pie pan, 8 inch baking dish or some other similar baking dish.
Put them into the oven now! Before you mix the sauce and accidental pour it onto the rolls too early. What do you mean, ‘Is that what I did’? How dare you insinuate..I..uh…
moving right along…
Ready to pop into the oven
Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
NOW the sauce and baking part 2
As ever, I love to use my Cinnamon Plus
Mix your sauce ingredients together and pour over the apple buns. Sprinkle with the almond slices and some cinnamon.
Return to the oven and bake 15 more minutes or so, until a deep golden brown. Serve warm. If you have an leftovers put them into a refrigerator.
This serves 8 people 1 each, like at a brunch. Or 2 buns for 4 people. Or 2 buns for 3 people plus 2 extra for those same 3 people to fight over.\
