Apple Puffs

Attention everyone! Today, my husband and I got to sleep in! I feel like shouting it to the world =)  We have not been home on a weekend in a month, and this weekend we plan on really enjoying it. Between band spring concert, banquet, and finals, things at the school have been very hectic, but this coming Thursday is graduation, and then SUMMER VACATION!! I have not been this excited for summer since I was in school, myself. 

Today we got to sleep in, and we woke up feeling refreshed.  With no plans until the afternoon, I was able to take the time to actually make breakfast for my husband.  I did not tell him what I had in mind; I wanted to surprise him.

I decided to make apple puffs.
                                      
First I took a red apple, sliced it and chopped it into 1" pieces.

I used crescent rolls as my dough.  I unrolled them and layed them out flat.  I spread a little bit of butter on top of the dough.

Then, I filled the dough with a layer of apple pieces.

I sprinkled the apples with my cinnamon-sugar mixture (2 tbs sugar, 1 tbs cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt).

I topped it with another roll, pressed the sides together, and sprinkled more cinnamon-sugar mix on top.

I baked the puffs according to the directions on the dough package. Mine said 350 for 12 minutes.
(The puffs in the back I made without the cinnamon; I don't much care for it)

These were so good and not too sweet.  They were very filling without being too heavy.  I ate mine plain...

...while my husband topped his with icecream (for breakfast??... I don't judge)

These were so simple and quick to make, and we enjoyed being able to sit and enjoy breakfast together.  I'll definitely make these again!
