Quick Apple Dumplings

Quick Apple Dumplings
(8 dumplings)


2 large Granny Smith Apples
1 (8 count) pkg. Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough
¼ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
½ cup Unsalted Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Fresh Orange Juice
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
½ cup Pecans, finely chopped


Peel the apples and then quarter each apple. Cut out the core and ends of each piece and set aside. Unroll the crescent dough and separate into the 8 wedges. Place one piece of apple on the wide end and roll-up towards the narrow end. Repeat the process with all 8 pieces of apple. Place them in a greased or sprayed 8 inch square baking dish. Sprinkle all 8 with the cinnamon and set aside. In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, combine the sugar and orange juice. Bring to a boil and remove from the heat. Add in the vanilla and then pour over the dumplings in the pan. Top with the chopped pecans and place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are done. Serve warm.

Note: Vanilla ice cream goes very well with the warm dumplings too.

Note: You can use other apples depending on your likes and availability. But it is best to use an apple like the granny smith because they hold up better.
