Apple Dumplings

Here’s a simple dessert that looks much fancier than it is. If you like a nice tart apple pie with a caramel like topping, this is for you. All it takes to make these simple apple dumplings is some granny smiths, a can of crescent roll and a little sugar, butter and juice to make the topping.

Great as is, but you can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or sprinkle some chopped nuts on top of the dumplings while the caramel sauce is still hot.

The Apple Cookbook: Recipes From Sweet To Savoryapple-cookbook

“An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away”
I’m sure you’ve heard that saying a time or two. Apples are a great fruit that’s not only healthy, but also very versatile and frugal.

I can almost always find some great apples on sale at the store. Occasionally we’ll also buy a big box of apples from a local orchard and store them for use in the winter. Apples keep well in a dry, cool place, but with all the cooking and baking, the never last very long at our house.
