Apple Dumplings (aka Apple Crack)




So occasionally, I make this dessert for my family. We call them Apple Crack because they are addicting!

Ingredients:
2 Tart Apples
1 Prepackaged roll of "original" Crescent Rolls
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream



1. Peel the apples and cut into quarters. You will have 8 pieces.


2. Open Crescent Rolls and wrap dough of one crescent around 1 apple chunk. Some stretching is needed. But they should cover the apple easily.


3. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place all dough covered apples in dish.

4. Next, melt 1/2 cup Butter and 1/2 Cup Sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil and heat until sugar is melted.


5. Then remove from heat and stir in 1/2 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream into the Butter/Sugar mixture. Stir until melted. The ice cream is the essential surprise ingredient.  


6. Pour mixture over dumplings and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 40 minutes.


7. Dish yourself up before letting anyone else in the house know they are ready.


Serve with s scoop of vanilla ice cream... YUM!!!

These are different than the apple dumplings I am used to making. Might give them a try though.

Well, I made this recipe this morning and I think I'm hooked. I know why you call it Apple Crack! It's great. I made it with Honeycrisp apples and it was a little sweet. Next time, I;m going to try Granny Smith apples. Thanks for sharing the recipe..
