Country Apple Dumplings


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 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.

Country Apple Dumplings

  • 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 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.
