These apple butterscotch crescent rolls are so easy to make and so good with coffee for breakfast in the morning.  I love experimenting with crescent rolls. There are so many good treats you can make with them.  These crescent rolls make great appetizers and you can double or triple the recipe.  They are good reheated in the microwave.  I keep them refrigerated in a plastic container if there are any left over.

1 (8 ounce) Original Crescent dinner rolls

1 large apple, peeled and shredded or grated

butterscotch chips


nuts of your choice

3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Remove rolls from package and pat out on biscuit board or counter top.  Add about 1 tablespoon grated apple, a couple butterscotch chips, 2 or 3 raisins, and some chopped nuts of your choice.  Roll up as you would for crescent rolls and kind of smash ends together.  Dip in melted butter.  Have your sugar and cinnamon mixed in a shallow plate. After dipping in melted butter, roll in cinnamon mixture.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until brown.  You can serve with or without the powdered sugar topping below.  Makes 8 buttery apple butterscotch crescent rolls. (I could eat all 8 by myself with coffee but limit myself to two) lol.


Powdered Sugar Topping

1/2 cup powdered sugar

3 or 4 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix well with wire whisk.  Drizzle over crescent rolls.
