Tips for Baking Crescent Rolls
The Pillsbury crescent roll is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. When baking with crescent rolls, it is important to follow these tips:
- Try not to overload the crescent roll dough with filling. Otherwise, the rolls may not bake evenly or may become too heavy and dense.
- For best results, fill the rolls just before baking; otherwise the dough could get mushy and not bake properly.
- Brush them with a beaten egg or milk for a golden, crispy crust.
Apple Pie Filling
Don't feel that you have to only use fresh apples when baking with crescent rolls. You can also make tasty desserts using apple pie filling.
Apple pie filling is a type of dessert that typically consists of apples, sugar, spices, and flour. The apples are usually peeled and diced before being simmered in a sugar syrup. Once the apples are soft, they are combined with the flour and spices to create a thick filling.
This filling is a popular choice for both pies and other types of desserts, such as tarts, danishes and crumbles. It can also be used as a topping for ice cream or yogurt.
