Easy Apple Tarts

I get random and sudden cravings for homemade apple pie. I can't explain it; it just happens. I like to pretend I'm a superb baker, but sometimes I just don't want to spend quite that much time in the kitchen. That's where these tasty little treats come into play. They're much faster to make than a real apple pie, and much cuter since they're just little guys. And unless I'm surrounded by a bunch of liars, they were good, too! Now that's a bingo. 

2 cans of crescent rolls
2 apples
1 egg
brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay out crescent rolls (unrolled). Place 3 or 4 thin slices of apple in the middle of each of crescent roll. Sprinkle (or dump, as I chose to do) some brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg on each clump of apples, then add a little slice of butter on top, too. Fold up the crescent rolls around the apple cluster. This part gets a little messy, but by the last one I'm confident you will have created an ingenious method of your own (I believe in you!). Brush the top of the crescent rolls with egg wash, then sprinkle on some more sugar and spice. Bake for about 12 minutes, until puffed and brown. Serve warm.

NOTE: You can also add a slice of brie to each tart before cooking for something a little fancier.
