These delicious apple dumplings are easy to make and sure to impress! In just a few easy steps, this delicious dessert can be all yours.
- Preheat your oven to 325℉.
- Peel and core 4 of your favourite type of apples and set aside.
- Unpack 1 roll of canned cinnamon rolls. Using a large surface or cutting board, unroll the cinnamon rolls completely. Use any excess cinnamon mixture on the dough to season the apples. Place about ¼ inch of the dough in the bottom of the apple and press down onto the table. Carefully wrap the dough around the apple and tuck back under itself at the top, repeat the process with remaining apples and transfer to a baking sheet. Cover with aluminium foil and bake until apple is slightly tender, about 30-40 minutes.
- While the apples are baking, cut the remaining cinnamon strip in half lengthwise with a sharp knife. Cut one half into four long strips, and use the other half to cut out four leaf shapes. Place the four stems and leaves on a separate lined baking sheet. Once the apples are tender, remove the aluminium foil, and continue to bake with the stems and leaves until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
- Remove from oven, and let cool slightly. Place the stems inside the apple cores and, place the leaf on top. Garnish with the canned cinnamon roll icing, or even a scoop of your favourite ice cream!
