Easy Southern Baked Apple Turnovers


Baked fruit is kinda my thing, y'all. I especially love baked apple (or peach or berry) anything, pretty much. If there is cobbler or flaky dough involved, I'm all in. In fact, this recipe could easily be adapted and would be exceptionally good with some delicious, summertime freestone peaches (mmm... yeah, definitely next time). Nevertheless, I've had apples on my mind for the past several weeks and finally got around to making this this happen. I hope you love it.

Here's what you'll need...

2 apples

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons flour

1 cup sugar

2 packages of crescent rolls (8 in each pack)

1 1/2 sticks of butter

9 ounces of 7up, Sprite or other lemon lime soda


Here's what you'll do:

  1. Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees

  2. Peel and core 2 apples, cut into 8 slices

  3. Add butter to a saucepan over med-low heat

  4. Add cinnamon, sugar and flour to butter until well incorporated. Sauce will be thick.

5. Roll each apple slice with crescent dough 

6. Spoon 1 tablespoon of sauce onto each roll (top off with excess)

7. Pour 7up or other lemon lime soda between the rolls (not onto)

8. Bake for 35-40 minutes


Serve hot with whipped or ice cream and enjoy! Serves 8-16.
