Crescent Pastry Puff

Crescent Pastry Puff


"Apples are in a custardy base wrapped in crescent roll dough. This dessert is finished off with a brush of melted butter and generous sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. The first time I made it I had to copy it for 10 different people and make it again the next day for the rest to sample. Then again copy the recipe 10 more times. Please try, you will love it!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar in a cup or small bowl, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of this mixture over the apples, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of sugar with cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the egg until light and fluffy, and then stir in vanilla. Set aside.
  3. Unroll the crescent roll dough, and place the pieces side by side on a large cookie sheet. Pinch seams together to form one big sheet. Place the apples lengthwise down the center. Use scissors to snip the edges into a fringe with strips about 1 inch wide. Pour the cream cheese filling over the apples, and bring the strips from the side up over the apples in an alternating fashion to cover the filling. Pinch ends closed.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. While still hot, brush the top with butter, and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar over the top.

Ok here are my suggestions: the custard filling is wayyy too much, so I would cut it down by 1/3 next time. Second, I used 3 granny smith apples, which was more than enough. For the crescent pas...

This was FABULOUS! Not only did it taste wonderful, it looked beautiful too! The only change I made was to add a little bit more of the cinnamon sugar mixture in with the apples. This will be...

This was very easy, and it was very tasty too. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to do the lattice work. I couldn't figure out how to put the two rolls of crescent dough together - it...

This was a huge hit! The cream cheese filling firms right up after baking to make a nice filling (so don't be afraid of doing the whole amount). I also prefer MORE apples (with much more of th...

This drove everyone crazy just smelling it cook - let alone eating it. I also put more than 1T of the cinnamin sugar mix on the apples - I put at least half and that still left plenty for the to...

This recipe turned out very nice. Instead of using cresent roll dough, I used the butterhorn recipe from this site as the dough. I let it chill overnight and then rolled the dough very thin on...

This did not turn out well for me. There was to much filling and it was gooping out everywhere. No way to "braid" it with the filling oozing all over, so I finally wrestled it into a pocket of s...

Fantastic dessert!! Everybody raved over it at my family reunion. The only thing I changed was that I substituted canned apples for the fresh ones, and it was still delicious. Thanks for su...

Great recipe. So good and so easy. I also put more cinnamon/sugar mixture on the apples. Plenty left for the topping. 2 large apples or 3 smaller ones is more than enough. Thanks!
