Apple Dumplings

I bought apples yesterday, after we ate about 3/4 of the previous bag. Some of the apples had started to go bad, so I just grabbed another bag. Sad, it's cheaper to throw away 3-4 apples than it is to buy in bulk just what we need.

Anyway, to prevent some of our apples from becoming landfill compost, I was looking for new recipes, and I stumbled across Old-Fashioned Apple Dumplings on All Recipes.

Of course, I don't have Granny Smith apples, pie crusts, brown sugar, cinnamon or nutmeg. So, time to improvise and see what I come up with...

4 Washington apples, cored
8 ct. Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
1/4 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
4 iced oatmeal cookies, ground up
1 egg white


1.) Core the apples, then set them aside to prepare the sugary filling.

2.) In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter, sugar, and ground up oatmeal cookies. Microwave for about 30 seconds, or until butter is melted. Using a fork, mix until well blended.

3.) Take a cinnamon roll and flatten it out with your hands. (The cinnamon bits tend to stick to the non-stick rolling pin.) Smooth it out over the bottom of the apple.

4.) Fill the inside of the apple with the cookie/sugar mixture, packing it as best you can.

5.) Flatten a second cinnamon roll and cover the top of the apple. Brush the seams of the rolls so that they will stick better when cooking.

6.) Place the apples on a greased 9"x13" baking dish. Bake @ 400*F for 1 hour.

Serves 4
