You'll love the different twist on ingredients from the normal apple dumpling. Because Zaar won't recognize 7-Up soda as an ingredient I've added it here. Use 6 oz.'s. Also, the amount of honey used can be adjusted depending on consistency. This can be made WW friendly by using Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls, Splenda white and brown sugars, Imperial light margarine, and diet soda.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Unroll crescent rolls. Do not separate.
- In a small bowl, combine honey, peanut butter, and pumpkin.
- Heat in microwave for 30 second intervals until it reaches a smooth spreading consistency.
- Spread across crescent roll dough.
- Being very careful, separate dough at performations.
- Roll each crescent roll around apple slices.
- Place into a 9x9 inch greased baking pan.
- Sprinkle brown sugar over wrapped apples.
- In a medium bowl, combine white sugar, melted butter, cinnamon and soda.
- Pour over apples.
- Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
This was a very easy and creative recipe to prepare. But I think the instructions could be improved. In particular, Step 10 states to combine sugar, butter, cinnamon and soda...yet "soda" is not included in the ingredient list. I know the Intro explained to use 6-oz of 7-Up soda, but some people don't read the Intro at all. So Step #10 should specify 6-oz of 7-Up soda, not just "soda". I did, however, think the taste of peanut butter overpowered the rest of the flavors. I didn't taste any of the pumpkin or apple flavors (which I guess I expected apple to be a dominant flavor given that the recipe is, after all, "apple" dumplings). But they were good, and I'm glad I tried this recipe. Thank you, Chef!
