Walker's Birthday Card and Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings


  Hello Crafty friends. Thanks for stopping by. Yesterday was my grandsons birthday. He turned 15. Before I know it he will be driving.😲

 Kids just seem to grow up so fast and I don't really like it. Wish there was a way to slow down time.

I had decided that I wouldn't make him a card. But being a card maker I just couldn't help myself. Also there were some challenges I wanted to enter.

 So yesterday before we gave him his presents I was grabbing cardstock, adhesive, stamps and starting up my Cricut. I knew I didn't have much time so I thought the number 15 would work perfect. 

This may have been the fastest card that I have made. Ha! 

I'm glad I decided to make it. He really liked it and that's what card making is all about.



Since the grandkids are living next door now. They stop in here first because their Mom isn't home from work yet. 

 They are tired and hungry when they get home. So I decided to make one of their favorites.

They were super excited that I made them some Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings. I usually make these in the cold winter months but It's now fall and already having some chilly days.

So I thought I would share the recipe with all my crafty friends.  I'm sure you and your family would like it to. It's really good served with vanilla Ice cream.

Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings


Ingredients you will need:

2 (8 each) cans Crescent Roll dough

2 large apples

2 sticks of butter

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon  (I put a little extra)

1 1/2 cup sprite

Preheat oven to 350 and butter a 9x13 pan

In a medium to large  microwave bowl melt butter.To that add cinnamon,sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Set aside.

Wash apples, peel and slice into 8 slices. Open and separate dough. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on dough, place apple slice and roll up.

Place in a buttered 9x13 pan. Pour mixture over apples. Pour sprite around the edges and in between the apples. Don't pour it over top.


Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown. I loosely place aluminum foil over the top the last 15 minutes or so to prevent burning.  



Thanks again for stopping by. If you try this yummy recipe let me know how it turned out. 

Happy day to you all.


Stay safe and stay Crafty!
