Apple Dumplings are an easy dessert made with apples, crescent dough, a butter sauce, and soda. You can use Mountain Dew or Sprite but the carbonation makes this butter sauce magic!
John loves apple desserts and loves Mountain Dew. Together = HEAVEN! This is definitely not for those on a diet. You might gain 10 pounds just from looking at the recipe. Can you say butter sauce?
This is like apple pie with half of the work. Cinnamon-spiced apples and pastry dough make this old-fashioned apple dumplings recipe a delicious dessert made with simple ingredients.
WHAT KIND OF APPLES TO USE?
Granny Smith apples are green and tart. Granny Smith apples are often used in baking to counter the sweetness in baked treats but really any fresh apples will work in this recipe. You could use pink lady, honey crisp, or gala apples.
CRESCENT ROLL APPLE DUMPLINGS
Start by rolling up an apple wedge in crescent roll dough.
Pour a sauce made from melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. You can use white sugar or brown sugar.
Pour a can of Mountain Dew around the edge of the pan. Sprite can be used as well.
Bake until golden brown. The sweet sauce is to die for! Definitely eat this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some whipped cream.
CAN I CUT THIS RECIPE IN HALF?
Of course! I don’t always need a ton of dessert so feel free to half this recipe.
