Ingredients

Dumplings

  • 2 cups peeled, cored, coarsely chopped apples (about 2 medium)
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or apple pie spice
  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, cut into 16 pieces
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup apple cider (from 48-oz bottle)

Icing

  • 1 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons apple cider

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix apples, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon until well blended.
  • 3
    Unroll dough; separate into 16 triangles. Spoon about 1 tablespoon apple mixture onto shortest side of dough triangle. Place 1 cream cheese piece on top of apples. Starting with shortest side of triangle, roll to opposite point, wrapping dough around apple mixture; arrange in pan.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, stir melted butter, 1 cup brown sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon until well mixed. Pour mixture evenly over dumplings.
  • 5
    Pour 2/3 cup apple cider in center and along edges of pan. (Do not pour on top of dumplings.)
  • 6
    Bake 33 to 36 minutes or until deep golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir 1 oz cream cheese, the powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of the apple cider until smooth, adding remaining cider 1/2 teaspoon at a time until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over dumplings.

  • Nearly any variety of baking apple will work in this recipe, including Braeburn, Granny Smith or Honeycrisp.
  • Fresh apples add a nice texture and balanced apple flavor to the dumplings in this recipe, whereas apple pie filling is softer and sweeter.
  • This dessert is best served warm straight from the oven.
  • For an even more decadent dessert, top dumplings with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
