Cinnamon Roll Apple Dumplings with Caramel Sauce




 Cinnamon Roll Apple Dumplings with Caramel Sauce


I am so excited about this recipe!  When coming up with new recipes, I always try to think of desserts that our family enjoys.  Apple dumplings and cinnamon rolls are definitely two of them.  So I thought why not combine them into one dessert; I did and they turned out wonderful!  I decided to use canned cinnamon rolls to make the preparation easy and the recipe simple.  To top them off, I made a rich creamy caramel sauce.  I loved how these came out and I'm glad that I thought of a new dessert to add to our collection :)  I hope you enjoy them too!

sauce:
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter
1/4 C maple syrup
1/4 C cream

Place a peeled and cored apple in the center of the dough.  Spoon some of the butter/brown sugar mixture into the center of the apple.

Bring the sides of the dough up around the apple.  Take both of your hands and cup them around the dough until it forms nicely around the apple.  You may have to squish the dough around to get it on properly.

Place in the pan and repeat with remaining apples.


Press the two remaining cinnamon rolls together, then roll them out flat.  Cut into six pieces and place these on top of the apples.

Bake for 40-45 minutes; until golden brown.  Your time may vary depending on the size of your apples; a knife should insert easily into the soft apple...then they're done.
