When you look in my fridge right now you see Ground Chuck and Crescent Rolls. I know a lot of you are the same way after the great sale at Publix this week. I have a few recipes for the Crescent Rolls up my sleeve. A couple of them are super cute Halloween Recipes for the kids. They will be on your way in the weeks to come.
I have been really lucky to receive some great emails from my readers in the past couple weeks. I am super lucky because some of you have included your recipes. I love it when you all send me recipes. Not only does it give me a chance to try something I may not have in the past. It gives me a glimpse into the kinds of things you all like to make for your families.
I opened a great email from Angela Owens this morning. She sent me this recipe for Apple Dumplings using the Crescent rolls. The minute a read it I knew it was a keeper. My hubby is home. I read it to him and he said, “So, you are going to make them today…right?!”
I made them for dessert. I tweaked the recipe just a tad. It really didn’t need tweaking! They are DELICIOUS! So much so everyone complained that there weren’t more. So I have a big THANK YOU to Angela for sending me the recipe. My husband and kids also thank you!
Here is Angela’s yummy recipe so you all can try it! OH, I almost forgot. This recipe will cost you practically nothing this week. Especially with all the rolls in the fridge!
Special Thanks to Angela Owens
- 1 – 8 ounce can crescent rolls (or 2 small cans)
- 2 – lg. apples, peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 – stick butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- ice cream or whipped cream (optional)
Separate crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles being sure to seal seams well. I used a rolling pin. It sealed the seams across the middle perfectly.
Place about ½ cup chopped apple in the center and pull corners to rectangle over apple.
Pinch dough together, sealing all seams.
Place in lightly greased 9″ square baking dish.
Brush with melted butter (You can also drizzle.)
Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle sugar over dumplings.
Pour orange juice into dish.
Cover with foil.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream if desired. Oh how I wish I had some Vanilla Ice Cream to go with these!
My brain starting running after these came out of the oven. You could also make this with peaches. Or add Pecans and Raisins to the filling. There are so many options!
For those of you who would like the Dairy Free recipe. Pillsbury crescent rolls are dairy free! I just found this out myself and was so happy! Just use dairy free margarine instead of butter and you are good to go!
