Apple Dumplings

Oh my goodness, I found this fabulous recipe on a new-to-me blog….The Real Housewives of Bucks County.    These girls are uber talented and funny too!    You must visit their blog and check them out….tell them I sent you.

Anyway, tonight I made their apple dumplings…it may be that I’m the only one on the planet who never heard of this dish but whether you’ve heard of it or not, you can’t go wrong making this easy and yummy dessert.     Here’s what you need:

  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls (I used 1 1/2 for two people)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples (or apples of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 oz of sprite (or mountain dew)
  • 2 sticks of butter (I only used one)
  • Cinnamon to taste


1.   Peel and slice your apples into wedges (I bought myself an apple slicer/corer…great little gadget for around $6.00 at Wal Mart – get yourself one!).     Roll up an apple wedge in one of the crescent roll triangles

2.   Place crescent wrapped apples in a sprayed casserole dish

3.   Melt butter, add sugar and vanilla and stir until “slushy”  (that’s unmelted butter in the pan…not some wormy thing!)

4.   Pour butter mixture over tops of apples
