Mini Apple Pie Roll Ups

These little apple pie roll ups are the perfect little dessert.  Easy to make, quick cooking, and you can make them just as easily for two as you can make a dozen.  They are also a fun combination of kinda classy (imagine serving these individual desserts with a dollop of vanilla ice cream in a pretty dish) AND kinda trashy (crescent roll log - check; extra butter - double check).  This is not an original idea of mine - the cutest picture of one of these little beauties popped up on my Pintrest feed and I knew I needed to make them.  I'm sure you can only imagine what I search for all day on Pintrest for these to be the highest recommendation for my day.  I made these little beauties for Mark's parents who were making a quick stop over to DC on their trip down South.  Mark's dad is an apple pie fanatic and I knew he would love these.  I was right!
