These didn't work out so great for me. I wish I had baked a few of them to try so I could have tweaked the remainder. I didn't think there was enough filling to balance out the dough or maybe the filling would have benefited from some added cinnamon or maybe a little lemon juice to perk it up. Anyway, I love the potential these have I'll just have to play with the ingredients a bit. Loved the clear directions and the consistency of the dough. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly coat baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Place apple and cranberries in food processor or blender, process with on/off pulsing action until finely chopped. Set aside.
  4. Combine sour cream, egg substitute, margarine and 2 tablespoons sugar in medium bowl. Add yeast and vanilla.
  5. Add flour; stir to form ball.
  6. Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface. Knead 1 minute.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand 10 minutes.
  8. Divide dough into thirds. Roll one portion into 12-inch circle. Spread with 1/3 apple mixture (about 1/4 cup). Cut dough to make 8 wedges. Roll up each wedge, beginning at outside edge.
  9. Place on prepared baking sheet; turn ends of cookies to form crescents. Repeat with remaining dough and apple mixture.
  10. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Lightly brush cookies with milk; sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
