Apple Dumplings


This is one of my favorite desserts. It is even better as leftovers the next day, if you have any left over. I listed the ice cream as optional, but really it isn’t. Add a scoop and drizzle some of the sauce on top. Trust me, you’ll thank me. As an added bonus, if you eat the whole thing it can count as a serving of fruit. :)


1 Apple
1 can (8 Oz) Crescent Rolls
1/3 cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Oz (4 Tbs) Sprite
Ice Cream (optional but highly recommended)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 8×8 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Peel and core apple. Cut apple into 8 slices.

Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll and place in baking dish.

Melt butter on stove top. Add sugar and stir just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over apples.

Pour Sprite around the edges of the pan and between the two rows of dumplings. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 35 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sauces from the pan over the top.

Apple Wraps

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday. I really wanted to try to make her favorite cake from scratch but Megan told me it wouldn’t be a good idea to experiment on Gram’s birthday. So instead we had my favorite pot roast and a Nothing Bundt Cake which was really, really good. I guess I’ll have to experiment on a normal day.









They didn’t even plan this…

But earlier in the week I used up the last of the Costco apples… These were really good and quick and easy to make.

1 can Crescents
1 Apple, peeled and cut into 8 slices
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbs Butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate crescents into triangles. Mix butter and cinnamon in a small bowl. Using a rubber brush, lightly brush the butter mixture onto each triangle. Place one apple slice on each one. Roll up and brush tops with butter mixture. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
