Made this with Paula Red apples just picked, very good, easy. Next time I would put some cinnamon on the apples before rolling them up in the crescents, and maybe some in the juice-butter mixture as well, since it was a little bland as written. A crowd-pleaser!

I first learned of this recipe from a co-worker, but lost it, so I searched and found this recipe. I fixed it for a group at church and was actually offered money to fix it again. I used Mountain Dew instead of the orange juice since that is what I remembered my co-worker used and also was planning to double the recipe,however changed my mind, but forgot I had already melted my butter, so I used a whole cup of butter. It turned out fabulous.
