Yummy Apple Dumplings
These are sooo good and so delicious. Even though these make their own sauce, I always make “Vanilla Sauce” to put on them. It makes them even more yummy. This is my version of this recipe, which I have made not so sweet, because the vanilla sauce makes it a little sweeter.
- 2 large apples, peeled and cored
- 2 (8-count) cans crescent roll dough
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Cinnamon to taste
- 10 ounces (1 1/4 cups) apple juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice apples into 16 slices. Roll 1 apple slice into each crescent roll and place in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
Melt butter, sugar and vanilla in a saucepan. Do not caramelize, use just enough heat to melt the sugar. Pour mixture over rolls; sprinkle with cinnamon and pour apple juice over the top of the rolls.
Bake for 30 minutes. Cover with foil and bake another 10 minutes. Makes 16.
