I absolutely love apple dumplings. I live near a couple of Amish communities and their dumplings are hard to beat but terribly time-consuming. My daycare provider gave me this recipe YEARS ago and I modified it slightly to exclude the Mt. Dew it originally called for…I try very hard not to keep that around the house! I like to make this on those days I happen to beat the kids home. It smells amazing and takes only 15 minutes or so to put together, so give it a try!
After-School Apple Dumplings
1 can crescent rolls (can use reduced fat)
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and in 8 slices
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar (brown sugar would be AMAZING)
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. apple cider or juice
Roll apple slices in crescent rolls and arrange in an 8×8 pan. Melt butter and stir in sugar, cinnamon, and apple cider. Pour over dumplings and sprinkle more cinnamon on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, or until golden.
This is a before picture…we ate them before I could remember to take an after picture (story of my life).
