Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings

READY IN: 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Wash the apples, peel and cut into eight equal slices or segments.
  • Unwrap the crescent roll and separate the triangles.
  • Place a piece of apple on each triangle of dough (on a wider side) and roll it in a croissant. You can wrap it like a crescent roll or you can wrap the dough over the apple slice covering the whole apple (dumpling style), either way.
  • Place each dumpling in an 11 x 13-inch baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam or coated with a stick of butter.
  • In a sauce pan, combine water, butter, sugar, and vanilla and heat to a rolling boil.
  • Pour boiling mixture over the dumpling and sprinkle dumplings with cinnamon.
  • Place uncovered in 350 degree oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until they become golden brown.
  • Serve immediately and top with cool whip. Or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, mmmmm -- Ah-mazing !
  • WARNING: Prepare this dish at your own risk. It is beyond imaginable.
  • I actually cut the recipe in half unless I have a big group to serve. And then I use a square Pyrex dish when I cut it in half.
