2 apples, cored, peeled and quartered
1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350F.
Wrap each apple quarter in one triangle of crescent roll dough. Continue until all 8 quarters are wrapped. Place dumplings in a round baking dish.
Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring sugars, water, and butter to a boil. Pour over dumplings. Sprinkle cinnamon over top. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes and serve warm with cream, if desired.
Notes: The original recipe, as written, called for 2 tubes of crescent rolls. To my calculations, that equals 16 triangles of dough for 8 pieces of apple. I'm assuming it's a typo, because I used only 1 tube of dough and it worked out great.
Also, this makes a LOT of sauce, which makes me wonder whether the typo was in the number of apples that should have been used (maybe four instead of two?). I think the sauce recipe could easily be cut in half with successful results. But really, is too much butter and sugar ever too much?
I used cinnamon AND nutmeg, only because I LOVE nutmeg. It was yummy.
I served it with Cool Whip. Would also be delicious with ice cream or fresh cream.
