Bear's "Cheater" Apple Dumplings

I call these my "cheater" recipe because, rather than making real pie crust dough, it uses a refrigerated product. But when you need something quickly, these are actually really tasty and easy.

2 large granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
2 cans crescent roll dough
2 sticks butter
2/3 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 12oz can ginger ale or ginger beer

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

2. Cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside.

3. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the widest end. Pinch to seal and arrange in the baking dish.

4. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour ginger ale over the dumplings.

5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

Note: it can boil over, so use a cookie sheet underneath.

Note: serving them with ice cream does not suck.

Ok, having seen so many of your delicious, mouth watering recipes in this forum, and me being a lazy cook/baker, I am seriously considering a trip to Texas to maybe try your recipes firsthand.  

Kidding Bear, of course. But you sharing your recipes is greatly appreciated!
