  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Roll out the Pillsbury Crescents. Cut them down the dotted lines to separate the triangles without distorting the dough.
  • In a small bowl, add in 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until combined.
  • Generously spread the cinnamon brown sugar mixture onto the Crescents. If there is any left, set aside.
  • Lay one of the apple slices on the wide end of the Crescents and roll it up. Repeat with each triangle and add into the prepared dish.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add in the butter, the remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar and any remaining cinnamon brown sugar mixture. Heat until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. It may take a few minutes of stirring to get the butter mixed into the sugar. 
  • Pour all of the brown sugar glaze/syrup over top of the apple dumplings. 
  • Place into the oven for 25 minutes until the Crescents are golden brown. You can use a skewer to poke through the Crescents and into the apple to make sure it's tender. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool. Serve with or without vanilla ice cream!
