The summer is coming to an end, at least for this year, and I’m kind of sad about that. As if I could not catch it until the end and take advantage of all the pleasant things that it offers.
Orchard near our house is full of plums, grapes and apples and it always reminds me that autumn is on the way. In early September we return to our virtual places and begin the new season of autumn recipes. And then I always think of my favorite apples and pumpkins.
What distinguishes these rolls from the others is that besides pecans/walnuts and apples, there is a great taste of sugar and cinnamon. Very tasty!
Do you love desserts with crescent rolls ? I generally like them, with any stuffing. They are modest in terms of ingredients but very seductive by taste. I always fall for such combinations, because I am from those who pay attention to every ingredient, and although I love medley of colors and the width of taste, which certain foods provide, yet I find myself to be more impressed by streamlined forms ie. combinations of those “little of everything”.
