Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings

I love quick, easy, and delicious recipes like this one! I had a couple cans of crescent dough in my refrigerator and was looking for a fun recipe to use one of them in, and this one jumped out at me.

These come together in no time, and are perfect to pop in the oven while you're eating dinner, then you have a warm gooey, delightful dessert to enjoy afterwards! The crescent dough is tender, and holds the perfectly cooked apple slice beautifully - that luscious sweet sauce takes this one over the top. Definitely give it a try with your favorite vanilla yogurt or ice cream!

Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (8-oz.) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
1 medium apples, peeled and cored (cut into 8 slices)
Sanding sugar, for topping (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine the butter, apple juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, until butter has melted and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla extract in. Set aside.
  3. Lay out the crescent dough, and place an apple slice at the top (wide) portion of the dough. Gently wrap dough around apple all the way down, to form your crescent shape with the apple slice inside. Arrange them in the pan.
  4. Pour the sauce over the top, sprinkle with sanding sugar (if you'd like) and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, until apples are tender, sauce is bubbly, and dough is cooked through.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired!
