Some of you already know how amazing these Apple Dumplings are. I saw this recipe years ago on the Pioneer Woman’s website. I’ve been hooked since the first bite. If you haven’t tried this recipe yet, head on over and make them! You won’t regret it. The original recipe calls for Mountain Dew. I have tried it with Mountain Dew and it tastes the same as if you use Sierra Mist or 7-UP or Sprite. For the sake of caffeine with my heart(SVT), I use an alternative.

It is so easy, it’s illegal. ONLY 7 ingredients. ONLY 2 apples! If you want a lovely pictorial lesson in preparing these evil treats, then leave right now and go to her website.

The woman is not only a wonderful cook, but an excellent photographer! Serves : 8 (8SP)

Ingredients :

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}

Directions :

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 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. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown!!!
