As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not the Maid that writes a lot of recipes, cooking, and baking posts and there is reason for that! I do love to cook and bake, so that’s not it – but unless I’m baking for a special occasion or for friends or family, my baking has changed dramatically in the last 5 years!!
Much to do with my little helpers in the kitchen!
Now I spend my time trying to find recipes and foods that I think they will eat and / or foods that they can help me cook. They both LOVE to be in the kitchen with me, so I try to put them to work as much as I can!
So, this week’s recipe is a kid-friendly and kid-tested one that my two girls loved helping to bake!
It is from the Gooseberry Patch – Kids in the Kitchen cookbook. My girls got this book as a Christmas present from their Grandma who had actually met Vickie and JoAnn at a book signing and they have their very own signed copy! Exciting!!!
We started by dicing a couple of large apples (and snacking on them along the way!)
We added the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the apples for the filling.
Using refrigerated crescent rolls, we laid half of them out on baking sheets and filled them. Then put the tops on and used a fork to crimp the edges of the dough. Huge hit with kids!
Bake at 350 for 12 minues and then drizzle some glaze over them. Enjoy!!!
The dessert plates were licked clean in this house!
