{Easy} Apple Dumpling Recipe

OMGoodness these are FAB!! I love them, but more importantly...I love how easy they are to make!! Here's a little step by step with some pictures (full recipe below).

First, slice & peel the apples. Then wrap apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in dish; sprinkle with cinnamon.

Put butter, orange juice, and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Pour over dumplings and sprinkle pecans on top.

Bake 30 minutes or so; remove and drizzle with caramel (optional -I added that part).

Serve it up in a bowl, add some ice cream, then drizzle some of that fab sauce over the ice cream for 5 extra pounds good measure. Enjoy!! :)

1 (8-count) package refrigerated crescent roll dough
