Last week I saw a recipe for apple dumplings that I had been thinking about making all week long, but never had a minute. So I was planning on making them this weekend. Then Saturday night, we went over to Steve's parents' house and guess what she had made?? Apple dumplings!! And oh...my...gosh!!! They were so good. So yesterday I came right home and made the same ones she made. They are out of a family recipe book that we both have. These babies are melt in your mouth delicious! I promise you will NOT be disappointed if you try them.
2 medium golden delicious or granny smith apples
1 pkg. refrigerated Crescent rolls (which make anything taste good!)
1 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter
Peel apples and cut into 8 pieces, removing the seeds. Wrap each piece of apple with one triangle shaped crescent roll, making sure that the apple is completely covered. Place dumplings in casserole dish. Set aside.
Combine sugar, butter, and orange juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until sugar dissolves and mixture bubbles. Pour the heated mixture over the dumplings. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350, uncovered, until golden brown...usually about 20 minutes. Serve warm, topped with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.
Steve and I finally got to go see Fireproof yesterday afternoon.
I really liked it! I love Kirk Cameron. We actually got to go hear him speak a few years ago and got to meet him in person. What a great guy! The movie definitely used lots of local people who probably aren't professional actors, but it was still such a sweet story. I would recommend it just because it was so uplifting and encouraging. I was reading a little bit of background on it and did you know that Kirk Cameron has made a commitment not to kiss any other woman other than his wife? So, in the last scene of the movie, they dressed his wife up like his wife in the movie and they did the last kissing scene in silhouette so he could keep this commitment. I thought that was kind of neat. It was a great Sunday afternoon movie!
Also...I got these little potpourri packets at Kirkland's recently in the Orange Clove scent...
They make your house smell like heaven! If you have a Kirkland's nearby, you should try these. They smell soooo good!
