Easy Apple Dumplings - recipe

First of all ... you're welcome.

No really. Amazing. I really hope you weren't planning on fitting into a wedding dress or swimsuit anytime soon because you're going to be too busy stuffing your face with these.

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe last weekend when we were in Florida and I seriously couldn't wait to try it! I whipped up the recipe last night... hot out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream? Heaven.
And I found out today {because I can't stop eating them} that they heat up perfectly!

Do I even have to say anything else? Just in case I do ... this recipe is also quick and uses a lot of things you probably have around the house anyway. Ok. Now I know I've sold you on making some of these today.

  - 2 can of crescent rolls
  - 2 large (red delicious) apples
  - 2 sticks of butter
  - 1 1/2 cup of sugar
  - 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  - 1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice*
  - 1 can of Sprite

*I bought apple pie spice at Target, no problem. But some stores may only carry pumpkin pie spice. That'll work too.

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Then core and peel your apples. Cut each into 8 wedges.

Wrap each wedge inside a triangle crescent roll.

Place these in a glass baking dish. 
{this recipe makes 16 dumplings}

In a small pan, mix butter, sugar, cinnamon, and pie spice. Stir constantly and bring this to a boil for 1 minute.

Pour this over your apple bundles.

Grab your can of Sprite and pour all over.

Then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 

 After about 25 minutes of baking, the smell was completely overwhelming. I spent the next five minutes drooling and staring at them through the oven glass.

So. unbelievably. delicious.

My husband isn't a big fan of anything too cinnamon-y and he loved these. The spices definitely aren't over whelming at all.


  1. These look amazing!

  2. We love to make these! They're really good using Mt. Dew or SunDrop, too!

  3. If you were taking these to a party, would you leave them in the dish or take them out and place them on a plate?
