Apples:sliced (choose whichever kind you like, I used a red softer apple Gala I think)
Crescent rolls ( separate into triangles)
Sugar and Cinnamon mixed together
Butter (helped make mine cook softer & I just love buttery stuff)
Take your apple slice and lay it inside a crescent roll triangle, put butter and cinnamon sugar inside also,then roll up your little surprise. Place on baking sheet with all the other ones you will do.
Put in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes.
Enjoy! Great as a snack, or even desert with ice cream.

I always love those people who spend more time complaining about topics or situations than producing solutions to the problems. If you are going to waste the energy complaining, why not come up with solutions instead. Move on in a positive light~~ Momentum is a forward motion, not a backwards approach in my opinion.
