Stuffed crescent rolls have become a fun focus of mine lately. They take just minutes to prepare and are a great way to jazz up a roll for meals.
I took the same concept of a baked brie that is wrapped in dough and applied it to these crescent roll recipes. But the rolls make it more accessible for meals and quick appetizer recipes without having to bake an entire wheel of brie. The Cinnamon Apple Brie Crescent Rolls might not puff up as much as when they are empty, which is because of the weight from the applies and the brie. But they do cook through and puff a little!
I love brie cheese because it is creamy, melts well, and has a subtle flavor that works well with so many fruits and spices. I was worried that the apples would get brown in the cooking process, but they did not! Keep them looking fresh and not brown by cutting the apple right when you are about to make the rolls, and baking them right away. Even after cooking, they did not turn brown. Use as much or little cinnamon as you would like! Adding the cinnamon both inside and on top really brings the flavor through.
- 8 crescent rolls (1 package of 8 rolls)
- 4 ounces brie cheese
- 1/2 apple (any variety is fine, I like to use Granny Smith)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
- Preheat oven as per package directions.
- Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. It will get messy and this makes for easy clean up.
- Unroll the dough. Cut the cheese into 1/2 ounce pieces at approximately 2.5 inches long, 1 inch tall, and 1/8 inch thick.
- For each roll, place the cheese at the wide end, leaving space around the edge. Add a slice of apple and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- Roll up the dough and place on the baking sheet.
- Repeat with the remaining rolls. Sprinkle a little cinnamon across the tops of the rolls.
- Bake according to package directions until the rolls are a light golden brown, approximately 15 minutes. There will be some cheese oozing out of the rolls, but it should not be too much. If it is too much, use a knife or spatula and push it back into the center of the roll.
- Serve warm.
