Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 13 min
Ready in: 23 min
Yields: makes 16 crescent bites

Ingredient Amounts

  • 3 Apples, your favorite kind
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger Root, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice, fresh or bottled

Let's Get Started...

  1. Preheat your oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with foil. Leave Crescent Rolls in refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Peel a chunk of your Ginger Root and grate 1 teaspoon of the root into mixing bowl. You can use fresh or frozen Root. *See Tip for Freezing Ginger Root Below
  3. Peel apples. Slice, remove cores. Take apple chunks to your cheese grater and shred them to bits. Add Apples to your mixing bowl of grated Ginger and stir until well incorporated. Add Brown Sugar and Cinnamon. Mix well to distribute evenly. Add lemon juice last. Give your filling a final mixing.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in saucepan or microwave. Unroll Crescent Dough triangles and brush with melted butter before adding 1 heaping tablespoon of Ginger Apple filling to each one.
  5. Place each Ginger Apple Pie Crescent Roll onto foiled pan and brush the top of each roll with remaining melted butter using your pastry brush.
  6. Put in oven, bake for 13 minutes, until golden brown. In the meantime, everybody will come rushing into the kitchen asking, "What is that fabulous aroma coming from the oven this time?"

* Tip about Frozen Ginger Root

I keep a large chunk of pre peeled Ginger Root in my freezer that I utilize for easy grating without having to use the cheese grater at all.

I find that when I "saw" the Ginger with my knife while it is frozen, it instantly becomes a very fine powder, thereby eliminating the "string" consistency as well as eliminating the cheese grater.

Frozen Ginger Root

I do not even have to use a cheese grater for frozen Ginger Root. It becomes a nice fluffy pile of Ginger Powder when sliced with my favorite little kitchen knife.

      thanks for sharing with us your wonderful recipe. Never try the combination of ginger and apple. Should give a nice twist to test my taste buds. Steps and photos shown are very helpful for a dumb baker like me. Voted up and useful.

      Lovely flavours here, I really want to try this, just not sure if you can buy that ready-made dough here in France, but you can find ready-made pastry so I could try that. Gosh I'm getting hungry all of a sudden...

      Thank you for your comments.

      Peachpurple, You are welcome for sharing this recipe. I love to cook, and I absolutely love to sneak a little fresh Ginger Root in, wherever I can. It is a healing food, afterall and I think I am addicted to the taste of Ginger.

      Vacation Trip, Yes it is amazing. I hope that you give this a try. It is easy and perfect for a party tray to a summer party, potluck or get together.

      Riviera Rose that is interesting that you cannot buy the rolls of crescent dough in France. WOW. I am so intrigued. I wish to visit France some day. These are so fun and tasty to eat. You will not be dissapointed.

      Randomcreative, that comment means a lot coming from another SUPER CREATIVE wonder woman! Thank you guys tons, for your support! I look forward to hearing your comments after you try these! :)

      Really great idea! Have you heard of the Immaculate brand? They carry organic and non-GMO certified refrigerator crescent dough. Thought I would share the tip since you are an organic girl too. Thanks for sharing! Voted up and pinned.
