Peel, core, and dice apples. Place the diced apples in a medium bowl with water and lemon juice to prevent browning of the apples.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish and set aside.
Drain the apples from the water and place them back in the bowl. In a small separate bowl combine ½ tablespoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix together and then sprinkle over the apples and stir to coat all sides of the diced apples.
Roll out crescent rolls into individual triangles. Place 3 tablespoons of apples on each triangle. Roll the crescent roll triangle and seal the edges together to make dumplings.
Place the rolled crescent rolls in the baking dish. Set aside.
