here is the recipe.. you may want to research other variations of this on the net.. I found one that used pecans and orange juice..
Quick Apple Dumplings....
Preheat oven to 350'.
2- tubes of refrigerator crescent rolls
2- large apples, some folks like Granny Smith, I prefer Gala, peel, core and cut into 8 slices..
2- Sticks butter or Margarine
1- 1/2 ( one and a half ) - Cups White Sugar
1- teaspoon cinnamon.. I use cinnamon sugar...
1- can of Sprite or Mountain Dew
Pinch of Salt
1- teaspoon vanilla
cut the apples into 8 slices, separate the crescent rolls. Roll up one apple slice in each crescent roll starting at the wide end, seal edges. Place in a "sprayed" 9 x 13 cake pan side by side. sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the rolls. I sprinkle the cinnamon sugar here... In a saucepan melt 2 sticks of butter, add the sugar. stir just till sugar melts. (should look grainy) remove from heat, add vanilla and salt.. stir.. pour over the rolls in the pan.. pour 1 can of pop over the rolls, then bake 30-45 minutes till the crescents are golden brown and crusty.. may serve with Ice Cream.. I always pour the extra sauce into a serving bowl after removing the rolls from the oven.. I find that leaving the sauce in the pan sometimes makes the bottoms of the rolls soggy.. you can spoon the excess sauce over the dumplings and or over the ice cream you serve with them..
