Apple Pillows

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by BlueHyacinth

I got this recipe out of my DD book "The Sleepover Cookbook" and we make these every time she has someone spend the night. They are so simple to make, but are such a hit with the kids. They are kind of like apple empanadas.

I used refrigerated breadsticks (thought I had crescent rolls, but didn't), so I had to get creative in the rolling! Omitted the raisins and prepared as directed. Made for a quick, lighter "dessert" that satisfied the sweet tooth without padding the thighs. Thanks!
