Simple Apple Dumplings

An old-fashioned apple dish gets an updated treatment with convenient crescent rolls. "These delicious dumplings are a time-saving treat for dessert or brunch," notes Jean Killen of Loretto, Tennessee.

    I make this recipe over and over again. My kids have always loved it and request it often. I will say, this recipe makes a large amount of syrup. You can easily double the recipe, the dumpling part, and have enough syrup for it.
