The other day when I went to the store I scored Pillsbury Big & Buttery Crescent rolls on clearance for .99 a can. I had a coupon for .75 off 3, so I paid .74 per can. I had never seeen these before, have you? There are only 6 in each large can, but each roll is 50% bigger than a regular crescent.
I had been wanting to fix some Ham-n-Cheese Hot Pockets with the .50 bags of Farmland Diced Ham I had scored and some of those yummy Apple Dummplings that Pioneer Woman introduced me to, but had been waiting on a sale. BINGO!
The Ham-n-Cheese Hot Pockets graced our table the other night. A picture of them is on my Monday Menu Plan post. Today I will be making the Apple Dumplings.
Here's a re-post of the recipe. I don't have any apples, so I will be using a can of apple pie filling today.
Do you love apple dumplings, but hate making them? Me too! But Pioneer Woman has posted her stolen recipe for all of us to cook up and enjoy!
It is so easy, it's illegal. ONLY 7 ingredients. ONLY 2 apples! If you want a lovely pictorial lesson in preparing these evil treats, then leave right now and go to her place. The woman is not only a wonderful cook, but an excellent photographer!
Here's the bare bones, no frills recipe.
2 Granny Smith apples (I've even used a can of apple pie filling!)
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 small can Mountain Dew
Peel and core apples. Cut apples into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
Then go to confession. Quickly.
