Cream Cheese & Apple Butter Stuffed Crescent Rolls

Shall I describe this little ditty of a dish in two words?  Well, okay then, here you go – delish and easy……let’s make it three words  -delish, quick and easy AND perfect for your Christmas brunch spread.  This time of year I keep crescent rolls in my fridge on the regular and however I choose to throw them together they are always well received, but they were especially well received this morning with my boys.  Not sure what gave me the notion to fill them with creamy cheese and the ever-underestimated apple butter, but boy were they good.  I am contemplating hosting a Christmas brunch in a few weeks and I know one thing for sure, these will be a part of my spread.

Cream Cheese & Apple Butter Stuffed Crescent Roll


  • 1 package reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons apple butter
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Break apart crescent rolls and spread on greased baking sheet.
  3. Place 1/2 oz cream cheese in widest part of each cresecent roll. Spoon 1 teaspoon apple butter over cream cheese of each crescent roll.
  4. Roll crescent rolls from wide end to narrow end and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Spray with spray butter if desired and serve.

My very favorite Apple Butter is Grandpa Yoders, but I’m sure you can find apple butter at your local Farmers’ Market just like this.
