Apple Dumplings with Orange Sauce

I absolutely love apples and so do my kids.  I've been cooking apples like crazy lately and wanted to share a quick and easy dessert I found.  My neighbor has several apple trees that he lets my kids pick from.  It's a win win, the kids have a blast, I get fresh picked apples, and my neighbor gets to try all the desserts we make.  I found this one at Better Homes & Gardens and changed it up to suit my taste.
Apple Dumplings with Orange Sauce


ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1teaspoon finely shredded orange peel ( I prefer to use fresh grated orange peel)
  • 1cup orange juice
  • 3tablespoons butter
  • 2tablespoons sugar
  • 23 inches cinnamon sticks
  • 18 ounce package refrigerated crescent rolls (8)
  • 2cooking apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
  • 1/2cup frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed

directions
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 2-quart rectangular baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

2.For orange sauce, in a small saucepan combine orange peel, orange juice, butter, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Cook over medium heat just until mixture starts to boil. Pour mixture all at once into prepared baking dish.
3.For dumplings, on a clean, dry work surface, unroll crescent roll dough; separate into sections. Wrap each apple quarter with one section of the dough. Place in a single layer in prepared baking dish; spoon orange sauce over each dumpling.
4.Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden, spooning sauce over dumplings halfway through cooking time. Cool for 15 minutes. Serve warm with whipped topping.

    1. Caramel apples sounds good too. Put a little cream cheese in your caramel next time, you'll love it.
