Spicy Apple Twists

The Menu:
Spicy Apple Twists

The Original Recipe:
This is the time of year that apples are found in abundance! So, I found this on my favorite website, but it didn't have the name of the person who posted it. I made these with some apples I had, and YUM! They turned out perfect. I doubled the recipe (not the cinnamon sugar mixture, though, it was enough with the way it's written). I will be making these again very soon.

Spicy Apple Twists

2 whole apples, peeled & cut into 8 pieces

1 pkg crescent dinner rolls

2 T melted butter

1/2 c sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 c orange juice or water

Cut crescent rolls in half lengthwise. Wrap apple piece in each, starting at wide end. Place in a 9-inch square pan. Pour butter over rolls. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on rolls. Add water or juice along side, not on rolls. Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes.

Katie's Notes: I used 1 large granny smith apple cut into 8 pieces and did not cut the rolls in half. I didn't use all of the cinnamon sugar (maybe all but a couple of tablespoons). I used orange juice.

Susan's notes: I used 2 medium granny smith apples and did not cut the rolls in half. I used 2 T melted smart balance light. I used less than half of the cinnamon-sugar (actually used pumpkin pie spice as was out of cinnamon). I used half water half OJ (ran out of OJ). Everyone LOVED this. Has 145 cals and approx 4.5 g fat with red-fat crescent rolls and the changes I made.
