SIMPLE APPLE DUMPLINGS
Recipe given to me from my Mother-in-law, Lorraine.
( Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees)
1 tube ( 8 ounces ) refrigerated crescent rolls
2 med/large Granny Smith apples, peeled and quartered
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup butter ( or margarine - but butter yeilds better flavor! )
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice ( or pumpkin pie spice )
Unroll crescent dough and separate into eight triangles. ROLL up one apple wedge in each triangle; pinch dough all around apple to seal. Place in an 8 inch baking dish.
In a medium saucepan, bring sugar, orange juice and butter to a rolling boil. Boil one minute. Pour over dumplings ( dumplings will float to top ). Sprinkle with apple ( or pumpkin ) pie spice. Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Serves 8.
*NOTE: As shown, this recipe doubles easily using a 13 x 9 x 2 pan. You can sub Golden Delicious apples for Granny Smith apples for softer consistency. Beware tho... when doubling recipe, you'll want to eat more than ONE!
