One afternoon I was chatting with a friend of mine who teaches preschool. She told me about the perfect little dessert that her kids made with crescent rolls, apples, cinnamon, and sugar. Could it be? Am I the only one who didn't make this dessert as a wee little one? Sheesh. Well I'm making up for lost time now.
I bought a package of four crescent rolls and one Granny Smith apple. After sprinkling the inside of the crescent roll with cinnamon and sugar, I added the apple (which I forgot to peel) and caramel bits. Next I rolled the crescents up and stuffed a few more caramel bits in for good measure.
I popped the dumplings in the oven for 13 minutes at 375 degrees.
It was yummy, easy, and very quick.
The perfect dessert for two people wrapped up in the drama of Dateline on a Friday night.
