Default Crescent Rolls become Sweet Potato Dumplings!

If you want to impress your guests, these sweet potato crescent rolls are easy to make and won't disappoint!


Here's what you are going to need:


1 (8-count) roll of crescent rolls
4 frozen sweet potato patties
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
6 Tablespoons of butter
1/2 tablespoon of Cornstarch
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Cinnamon for sprinkling on top


Here's what you need to do:

Preheat oven to 350 F.



You are only going to need 4 of these patties so just put the rest in the freezer for next time.
Once you taste these sweet potato dumplings, you'll know that there will definitely be a "next time".



Cut each patty in half.



Open and unroll the crescent rolls.


Separate the triangles. Place each sweet potato patty on the wide end of each triangle.



As you roll up each sweet potato half in the crescent roll, tuck the ends in.
They don't have to be perfect.
Since they don't have to be sealed,it's okay if the sweet potatoes aren't completely covered.



After you finish rolling them up, place in an 8"x8" glass baking dish with the pointy end of the crescent roll facing down.

88If you are doubling this recipe, use a 9"x13" glass baking dish.



In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cornstarch. Mix well. Add the butter.


Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.



Pour the sugar mixture over the dumplings.




Sprinkle with cinnamon. I like a lot of cinnamon on mine.

Bake in the preheated 350 F oven for 35 to 40 minutes.

Thanks y'all! I don't know if they are a regional thing or not LS. I get them in the freezer section with the vegetables.

Carolina, just post the recipe where you think it fits best and if the mods think it's a better fit elsewhere, I'm sure they'll ask you if it would be alright to move it. No big deal.

I don't know if you can use them raw Peepers. The only way I've ever made them is with the frozen patties. I think the frozen patties are blanched so you might could blanch them and then wrap them. I've heard that you can also do this with cooking apple slices and make apple dumplings but I've never done it.

I think there should be a thread.

What can be made with a can of Crescent rolls

I have made apple turnovers. Pizza pockets. any fruit filling even jam. Sausage, hot dogs, herb cheese. I have even made a ham & swiss roll up lol. cinnamon rolls. Its really endless what you can make. My grands love to make stuff with them..No mess..

I have used the biscuits as cobbler topping & on top of stews.

Oddly I have not used the pizza dough for pizza but I have used it to make rolls & bread sticks.
