COUNTRY APPLE DUMPLINGS

Country Apple Dumplings from Crescent Rolls: Butter with a Side of Bread


As apples are in peak season and are inexpensive, so I thought I'd share a simple and delicious recipe your family is sure to love. I found the recipe here, on Allrecipes.com and made a few minor changes.

Some of the ingredients might make you wonder, but trust me on this one: these are impossibly delicious. They taste like a small piece of apple tart heaven!

They're best when served immediately, with a scoop of Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream. However if you want to save them for later, be sure to separate the dumpling from the excess liquid that remains after baking.

  • 1 large apple {I used a Fuji- any apple will do, tart is better}
  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent dough
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup or 6 oz. 7-Up or equivalent {half the can}
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 baking dish.

Cut each apple into 8-10 wedges. Slice the apple skin off as well and set aside.

Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the wide end. Pinch to seal and cover apple and place in the baking dish. {This is easier if you first pat the apple wedge dry, then wrap dough around it.}

Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Heat, whisking to combine. The mixture will slowly combine and thicken. When it's thickened, remove from heat and add vanilla.

Pour cinnamon mixture over the apple dumplings. Pour soda over the dumplings.

  1. This recipe is why I should always keep a can of crescent dough in the fridge! For when I have one measly apple and the last of some lonely, flat ginger ale in the fridge (it's never 7up, hopefully that's ok) and suddenly! Suddenly! I have the perfect ingredients to make everything smell like warm cinnamon and treat everyone to these delicious dumplings!
    That's genius. Thank you!

  6. Do they keep well in the fridge? Could I make them the night before and send with the hubby's lunch or have as a side for brekky?

  7. Is the soda necessary? Can I just do the sauce?
