Delicious Apple Dumplings – the easiest recipe I’ve ever found. Some people like them with ice cream, some with whipped topping, but I like them just as they are – warm from the oven, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. I serve them warm with a hot cup of coffee or tea, sometimes hot chocolate for the kids. You can whip up a batch while you’re making dinner, cook them while you’re eating dinner and have a wonderful, fresh from the oven dessert straight from the oven.
Apple Dumplings Recipe
- 2 Green Apples
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 c. granulated sugar
- 3/4 c. water
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 8ct. crescent rolls (for the record, you can make your own dough – we certainly have!)
- Cinnamon Sugar to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel the apples and remove the core. Cut the apples into four quarters.
In a small saucepan melt the butter and sugar over med. heat until melted and blended. Next, water and vanilla.
Take a quarter of the apple and roll it up in a triangle of the crescent dough. Make sure you press the dough together to close the apple up inside the dough. Do the same with the rest of the apples and the rest of the triangles of dough.
Place your dumplings in a 9 x 13 pan not too close together.
Pour the butter mixture over the dumplings. Flip them so all sides are coated in the butter mixture.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until they come out a golden brown. Remove from oven.
Mix together some cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the top of the dumplings before you allow them to start cooling.
