      This was wonderful! I only had one fresh apple, so I used a 16oz can of Fuji apples instead (just the actual apples, I left the goopy stuff behind). The lemon is definitely very strong in this, but I think it went really well with the apples. I also used a can of the "big and buttery" crescent rolls, so the dough sheet was just the right size without having to fold it before filling. It was especially nice how quickly this came together. Wondering how good this would be with a cream cheese filling in place of the apples...? Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7

      Took this to a cookout and brought home an empty plate. I plan to make another again to take to work later this week. Made by a fellow Spoonie for Zwt6.
