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!!!
