Last night, I decided I wanted to make cinnamon rolls in the crockpot for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. I've been watching my diet, and it was totally random, but...hey...it's THANKSGIVING, and I thought it would be SO nice to wake up to the smell of cinnamon rolls.
I was looking around for the perfect recipe, when I came across THIS one for Crockpot Apple Dumplings. That one sounded unique, so I changed my mind, and decided to make them instead. Anyway, the recipe referenced THIS recipe for cresent rolls...
And I can't tell you how THRILLED I am to have found it.
This dough was easy to make, easy to work with, and easy to clean up.
Not to mention delicious.
I'm thinking dumplings for stew, pot pies, cinnamon rolls...add some Italian herbs to make a pizza/calzone crust??? There must be at least a million uses!
But I digress.
Here's our apple dumplings in pictures:
I made the dough around 8 pm, so I had to let it chill until 10 pm before rolling it out...by the way, I realize this isn't a perfect circle, but it's about as good as it gets around here :)
Then I wrapped each triangle around an apple wedge, and placed them back into the fridge, because it was too early to start the crockpot. (PS - I made a double batch of the dough to have a total of 16 triangles.)
At 2 am, I was up testing Sugar's blood sugar...and piled them into the crock...
Added the rest of the ingredients...
They were ready at 7! But we didn't get up until 8, so the sugar overcooked, and carmelized a bit. Even still, they were mighty delish!
After breakfast, I made another batch so we could have some GF cresent rolls with our Thanksgiving dinner...
Seriously, my friends.
Add this recipe to your favorites RIGHT NOW.
The possibilities are endless!
