Has anyone ever used Pillsbury Pie Crust that you get in the refrigerator section for apple dumplings or turnovers?

Works just fine for turnovers anyway, don't know about dumplings.
Have used this and store brand for many shapes of desserts. Works great. What I found was I rolled it a little thinner.
I used crescent rolls, unrolled and wrapped on apple quarters. I put them all in a dish, poured an orange juice syrup over them, and baked. People raved!
Oh yes I did and it was great just cut the size you need and bake as usually. Used it for pies and just made and apple pie that was out of this world. When I make home made it is horrible but the premades are great and if you get the coupons that says buy two save one dollar that is good too. Special when they are on sale.
I would think that the pie crust would not work as the dumpling, when done, should be a bit more puffy. Maybe the biscuits, cut smaller would work.
I remember my mom using canned bisquits for dumplings, they were a bit dry but it worked.
I would think the piecrust would be too tender and cook apart. I use bisquit and cut them into quarters for dumplings. Some people use tortillas and just cut them in squares or strips and drop them in the boiling chicken broth.
Well I misread that one didn't I. You are not talking about dumplings in the sense of Southern chicken and dumplings but the Yankee type of Apple dumpling baked and cooked with a sauce aren't you. I don't know why it would not work. After all, it is pie curst you make to use on this dessert. I would just wrap it around pieces though and not the whole apple. Then pour the sauce over and bake.
