Recipe by Not-2-Sweet
This is an awesome way to use apples on a cool autumn day. They look like cinnamon rolls, but taste like apple dumplings--complete with sauce--but a whole lot easier to make. Great warm from the oven with vanilla ice cream. I got this recipe from a 1999 issue of Hometown Cooking. Enjoy!
