Apple Dumplings

Well, it's that time of the month again.  No, boys, don't go running off, that's not the time of the month I'm talking about.  I wouldn't do that to you.  Although.... here I am talking about it and completely not even meaning to.  Moving on.  It's Secret Recipe Club time!

I had the pleasure of being assigned to No Reason Needed!  It's been a hoot reading her blog posts!  Her family is super cute and they are always going on some crazy adventures.  If you get the chance, go check her out!

I was running behind this month since school started and I've been subbing for Yoga so this weekend was the last weekend before the big reveal on Monday morning.  The pressure was on, I needed to pick something that was quick and easy.  I swear I looked at every single recipe on her blog and then this one popped up - Apple Dumplings!  Super easy and looked absolutely delicious!  I was hooked and ran to the store to pick up my ingredients.  It just so happened we were going to a friends house for dinner and I had the perfect excuse to make this dessert.  Although, this has never stopped me before.  I will always make dessert even if I have no one to share with!
