Apple Dumplings

These Cinnamon Apple Dumplings are easy to make and great for a quick no fuss dessert. They are best with vanilla ice cream but I didn't have any on hand. The apples bake up in the dough and it gets caramelized and so good.

Slice the apple into 8 thick wedges. And remove the core.

Wrap each apple wedge with a crescent roll. Starting from the longer end and finishing at the tip.

Place the dumplings into a buttered 8x8 inch baking dish. I just stuck the dish with a pat of butter into the oven while it preheated as opposed to greasing it.

Make the butter topping on the stove top.
This butter and sugar mixture is not a caramel, so you don't need to cook it for long at all.

Pour the butter mixture and sprite into the baking dish and sprinkle with more cinnamon.

Bake for 30-45 minutes until the tops are browned.
