I am pretty sure I have done a million different things with Pillsbury crescent rolls and biscuits. From Pizza puffs, mac & cheese bites, garlic jalapeno rolls and popovers, the amount of super quick fun food items for kids (and husbands) is endless. I wait until they are on sale and use a coupon and get quite a few crescent rolls and or biscuits to be able to use when creativity strikes. The kids love it and I like how easy it is, when I was working all the time I could easily come home and make a meal and dessert in no time. This week I was in a sweets mood with the kids and they always get excited about fresh, hot baked goods. It might be because I am not currently eating sugar and the smell is enough for me. It is nice that being home now where I can work on making some more complicated baked goods, but these are always fun. Bonus for very little mess.
Quick mini apple pies: Cut the more narrow part of the crescent roll off, then take the larger piece and form it into a muffin pan and then sprinkle with cinnamon. (Pan sprayed with Pam) Then take the smaller piece of dough and cut into small strips for decoration. Fill each one with apple pie filling and then lay the strips across the pie in a criss cross pattern and then again sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes.
I have done this several ways with all different kinds of pie fillings. Excellent every time.
Quick doughnuts: Take each crescent roll triangle and roll it up until it is a long strip, work the strip to flatten out and larger spots, take the two ends and pinch them together, overlapping so that the dough is nearly an equal size all the way around. Cook on either a Silpat or parchment paper in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes, flip over and cook again for about 10 minutes, they should be a light golden brown. Then toss into a bag with powdered sugar, lightly shake them up, let them sit in the sugar for a few minutes and then serve. Super easy!

I love this filling, especially the blueberry
