Easy Country Apple Dumplings

What an easy but delicious seasonal recipe!

For this you will need:

2 small apples, peeled and cored
8 oz. tube refrigerated Pillsbury crescent roll dough
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup Sprite soda

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Cut each apple into 4 wedges. Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place an apple wedge near the small end of the dough triangle, then roll up.

Pinch the ends to seal. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add int he granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon; stir until combined and smooth.

Drizzle butter mixture over the dough.

Pour the Sprite to the sides of the dumplings (not on top) so a nice crust is formed while baking.

Bake until golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork, 35-40 minutes. Remove for the oven and let stand 10 minutes.


Serve for breakfast or make it a dessert with some vanilla ice cream. Delicious!

Any kind of apple works so use your favorite. Do not eliminate the Sprite (7 Up or Mountain Dew will also work). You need the carbonation for these to turn out right. Feel free to double the ingredients to make more.
