Apple Dumplings

This has got to be my favorite apple dessert! I got the recipe on The Pioneer Woman cooking site earlier in the year. Everytime I make these we are amazed at how delicious they are – and so simple to make, too!

Apple Dumplings

2 Granny Smith apples

2 cans Crescent Rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


1 small can Mountain Dew

Peel and core apples. Cut apples into 8 slices each. (Or say “yes” when your daughter asks if she can do this step, like I did) –

Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. –

Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. –

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. –

Here’s how they look when they are done –

Serve with ice cream and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top. –


Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) ends this recipe with these words – “WARNING: PREPARE THIS DISH AT YOUR OWN RISK. IT IS BEYOND IMAGINABLE.”

I totally agree.
