My husband has been bugging me like crazy to make some delicious apple dumplings so today we were a team and got them done! They turned out awesome for a fall dessert or treat. The recipe is very basic and anyone can make them, even kids! I hope you enjoy and let us know if you make any adjustments.
This picture is missing butter, btw! We actually made two batches but I wrote out the recipe for just one. I also realized I grabbed the "butter flake" crescent dough but it made them more buttery and delicious!
Take the easy route and use an apple slicer!
When rolling the dough make sure you tuck in the edges so no apple is showing!
Apple Dumplings Ingredients:
- 1 can of Pillsbury crescent dough
- 1 green apple
- ¾ cup 7 up or Mountain Dew
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ⅔ cup sugar
- ½ cup butter
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and butter your baking dish.
- Peel the skin off the apple with a potato peeler or knife. Cut it into 8 slices (we did it the easy way)
- Open your crescent dough and separate each triangle. Put one piece of apple at the thickest part of the crescent dough and sprinkle some extra cinnamon/sugar on them. Roll them up making sure the edges are sealed together.
- Place the dumplings into the baking dish.
- In a sauce pan, melt ½ cup of butter and then slowly add in the sugar/cinnamon whisking until it thickens.
- Take off heat and add the vanilla.
- Pour the cinnamon butter mixture over the dumplings.
- Add the 7 up in the baking dish going around the dumplings not on top of them.
- Bake in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes depending on your oven until golden brown.
