What are Crescent Rolls?

Crescent Rolls are the most delicious triangular dough you will ever eat. Made by Pillsbury, Crescent Rolls are pre-made, pre-cut dough in a can that bakes into a light, flakey, golden brown shell. Popularly stuffed with all kinds of things, crescent rolls are inexpensive, easy, and really go well with sweet or savory fillings.

For this recipe, the apple pie filling wrapped in the flakey crust of the crescent roll makes it really taste like a mini apple pie!

Just 3 Ingredients!

These mini pies are a party favorite! Also, they’re going to become your favorite thing ever because they are so easy! With just 3 ingredients and a baking sheet (or air fryer), you have yourself the yummiest apple pie.

Air Fryer Desserts or Oven Baked Pies?

Air fryer desserts are all the rage. And I’m totally on board. It’s healthier than pan frying because the air fryer doesn’t use any oil! Making these little desserts in your air fryer also cuts down the cooking time to 8 minutes! If you have one, I totally recommend making these apple pies in the air fryer.

Another alternative is cooking these mini pies in the oven on a greased cookie sheet until golden brown. This is also a super easy way to make crescent roll apple pies. While not as fast as the air fryer, baking these pies in the oven only takes 12 minutes!

Peachy Tips & Tricks

Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle the tops of each mini apple pie with cinnamon sugar to give some extra sweet cinnamon spice. This is totally optional, but I think it’s the perfect final touch!

Cream Cheese: Make sure to set the cream cheese out for a bit before you plan to spread it onto the crescent rolls. When it’s softened, it’s much easier to spread and won’t risk breaking up the dough. After you spread it on, add the apple pie filling, roll up the crescent roll dough, and bake!
