What is a Cruffin?

A Cruffin is a hybrid of a muffin and a croissant. It became popular in the last decade and there are many different versions of how to make them. Our recipe uses easy-to-find ingredients such as crescent rolls instead of making your own dough. You can easily switch out puff pastry for the crescent rolls. Puff pastry will be flakier while the crescent rolls have a denser texture but are still flaky. 

1 package of crescent rolls
1/2 cup apple butter (Nutella/jam)
1/4 crushed nuts (optional)
Muffin pan
1/8 cup flour
spray to grease muffin pan or butter

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Grease muffin pan
3. Sprinkle flour on the surface. Unroll crescent rolls and use a rolling pin to spread it out thinner.
4. Spread a thin layer of apple butter (filling) on top of the crescent roll dough. Sprinkle with nuts if using
5. Roll dough – lengthwise as if it was a log
6. Cut the log in half horizontally and then again vertically.

8. Bake for 15 minutes
9. Remove from oven. Serve them hot or cold.

You can change the type of dough from crescent rolls to puff pastry as well as the type of filling used.  Nutella, pumpkin butter, apple butter, softened butter, and cinnamon sugar, or even fruit jam… the possibilities are endless.
