The sweet dessert dumplings are easy to make and especially delicious. I recommend making extra sauce—people can’t seem to get enough of it. —Cynthia Gonzales, Mercedes, Texas

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.
MAKES: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 small Granny Smith apples, peeled and halved
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ORANGE SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

  1. Unroll crescent dough and separate into eight triangles. Wrap one triangle around each apple half. Place on a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan, flat side down.
  2. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dumplings. Bake at 350° for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender.
  3. For sauce, in a small saucepan, combine orange juice and sugar; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 1/2 cup, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; gradually stir in butter just until blended. Serve warm with warm dumplings; sprinkle with pecans. Yield: 8 servings (1 cup sauce).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
