Crescent Apple Dumplings Recipe
1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled
16 red-hot candies
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons grapefruit or citrus soda
1 to 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Unroll crescent rolls and separate into eight triangles. Cut apple into eight wedges. Place
an apple wedge and two red-hots on each crescent triangle. Bring up corners of dough to
center; pinch edges to seal. Place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, butter and vanilla; spoon over rolls. Slowly pour soda
around the rolls (do not stir). Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice. Bake, uncovered, at 350°
for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream if desired.
Yield: 8 dumplings.
