didn't work so well for me with Pillsbury Grands. I followed the recipe and they are great even though I really do not like making dough - so spoliled! It really is a great and well received recipe

Made this for the first time Thanksgiving weekend. Cobblers and more issue is filled with great recipes. I did a quick version by purchasing 2 Pillsbury Grands cinnamon rolls. Unrolled them and added the chopped apple, then rolled back up. Added the sauce as directed. I baked for 30 minutes and they were perfect. I’ll be making these often.

I agree with the reviewers who found the dough to be very sticky, a little difficult to handle, BUT, as one of my nephews said, "this is outstanding". will make this again. Thank you.

I haven't made this recipe. I just wanted to say that neither has delowenstein! She made so many major changes the only thing her dessert has in common with this recipe is they both contain apples and produce a pastry. For all the changes, her rating is irrelevant. So why couldn't she go ahead and give it 5 stars?

I thought these would be really good, but I was a little disappointed since they seemed more bready than I was expecting. I halved the recipe and then used a little less apples and brown sugar than called for, so that's probably my fault. The bake time seemed too long as they came out a little tough for my taste. Obviously others liked it, so it has potential, but if I tried this again, I would make some changes.

These were delicious, even though I made them gluten-free and the syrup-making got interrupted mid-stream by the dog having a seizure! I used a gluten-free flour blend, doubled the baking powder and added a little xanthan gum and fruit pectin, about a tablespoon of whey protein isolate and two eggs to make the dough. I also subbed corn starch for the flour in the syrup. The wheat-tolerant members of the family also pronounced these "keepers"!

Followed the recipe to a 'T' and they were a big hit!

I did find that for me, this recipe rated as a #4. I did make a number of adjustments for this recipe by using 1 tsp. salt and using 1-1/3 cups evaporated milk which I made into soured milk by adding 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar. I also used 1/2 cup each packed brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. I did not spread the dough with the sugar and cinnamon-I just kneaded the dough and ended up rolling into small balls. I combined the apples with the cinnamon and sugars, water, flour, butter and made an apple topping instead. I did find that for me, the best bet IS to first place the apple mixture in a greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan, then roll small pieces of the dough into round balls and place on top of the apple mixture. I find it works best to bake for at least 1 hour or until bubbly and golden brown! delowenstein

Four cups of apples were too much to put into the roll along with the brown sugar. Fell apart when I tried to put them into the pan. The sauce doesn't get very thick so I wasn't sure how long to cook (3-4 minutes still results in watery sauce) and a lot of energy was wasted by turning on the oven first. I hope they taste a lot better than they were to make. I'll stick to regular apple dumplings as they are easier to handle!
