Butterscotch Apple Cinnamon Crescents

I love to fill my home with the wonderful smells of the season - like cinnamon, butterscotch, and apples on Christmas morning. A warm fire blazing, Christmas music playing, and these beautiful Crescent Rolls coming hot out of the oven.

What a way to start my favourite day of the year!

  1. Butterscoth, apple and's not love these crescents!

  2. I think those crescent rolls are one of the most versatile ingredients ever. This recipe sounds oh so good, I know my family would love this.

  3. It's amazing the transformationsone can make with a basic roll of these crescents! Your apples and butterscotch chips are inspired! Yum! I may have to make these before Christmas morning, for sure!

  4. These were yummy delicious!! All I had on hand was Gala apples and these worked great. I had to bake mine nearly twice as long. I made the mistake of covering them with foil when they came out of the oven so next time I will leave them uncovered so they will stay crispy. Thank you for posting a delicious recipe!
