    Thinking about my friend Deb (Hi again Deb!) made me remember this yummy recipe that she taught me and I just had to share it.

    Apple Dumplings

    2 Granny Smith apples- peeled, cored and sliced into 4 wedges each
    1 can crescent rolls- separated
    1 stick butter, melted
    1 cup orange juice
    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 350°.  Wrap each apple wedge in one crescent roll and seal seems.  Place in an 8×8 baking dish.  Combine  melted butter, oj,  sugar and cinnamon.  Pour over dumplings.  Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.  Holy cow are these good!  And bad for you!  Now if you think a stick of butter and a cup of sugar are a bit much you can totally halve the butter, juice, sugar amounts.  These would still be yummy and slightly less damaging to your arteries.  I have another girlfriend who makes a similar dumpling with red hot candies.  Ya, those are pretty ridiculously yummy too.  Any of these versions are fantastic with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    yum!
