Crescent Roll Explosion Apple Tartlets

What do you do when you've had a sort-of crappy day, get home with loads of groceries and find a can of crescent rolls exploded in the grocery bag?  (The end of the can blew off...really...just exploded!)

If you are me, you gently rescue the dough, make 4 squares out of the 8 triangles (pinching/pressing the seams together), spoon in some canned apple pie filling (I used Lucky Leaf), pull the dough over the filling to make a "purse"...pinch all seams thoroughly... bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown.  Allow to cool.  (These crescent rolls were H.E.B. store brand reduced fat...worked perfectly)
Two were round, two were elongated...the dough was not consistent...
but, considering it had exploded, no surprises there!

While cooling, mix up an icing/glaze consisting of about 2-3 Tbsp heavy cream, 1/2 tablespoon vanilla bean paste, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar until thick and smooth.  Load into a zipper sandwich bag and snip the end...drizzle all over the dumpling-like dessert.  It was so freaking delicious!  E-Z P-Z!!!

I was so irritated in the beginning and all smiles at the end of it all!  My husband nearly licked his plate and smacked his lips!  That's a good sign.

Inside the "explosion tartlets"...yummy!

Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!StumbleUpon
