    Wash and core apples. Thinly slice each one, leaving the peel on.

    In 2-quart saucepan, heat 4 cups water, 4 tablespoons sugar and the lemon juice to boiling. Add the apple slices; boil about 3 minutes or until apples are soft. You want to be easily able to bend them without breaking.

Expert Tips

  • If you are unable to find the dough sheet, you can use regular crescent roll dough; just press perforations to seal seams while rolling out.
  • Drizzle with caramel, or sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar for added goodness.
