Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Easy Apple Dumplings)

Hello once again friends and food lovers and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today is National Apple Dumpling Day so I figured I would bring you a recipe for some of the best apple dumplings I have ever tasted. Nice and crisp on top, warm apple in the middle, and gooey goodness on the bottom. It’s been awhile since I’ve had these and I’m starting to crave them as I sit here typing this out. I think the secret to making this insanely delicious is to make sure you cook the sugar/butter mixture until it makes a thick, rich sauce almost the consistency of melted caramel. I’ve also found that you can make these with peaches instead of apples and they’re still amazing. For the diabetics out there, don’t worry, you can enjoy this as well. Just cut back on the butter, substitute Splenda for the sugar, and use Diet Mountain Dew instead of the regular. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter so you don’t miss any new posts.

Easy Apple Dumplings

  • 3/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Large Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 (10 oz) cans Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough
  • 2 Sticks Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups White Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 (12 fluid oz) can Mountain Dew

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
2. Combine the 3/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp cinnamon together on a plate or shallow dish.
3. Cut each apple into 8 wedges; roll each wedge in the cinnamon sugar, shake off any excess, and set aside.
4. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles; roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end, pinch to seal, and place in the greased baking dish.
5. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and stir in the 1 1/2 cups sugar; continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
6. Add the 1 tsp cinnamon and the vanilla to the mixture and stir to combine; pour the mixture over the apple dumplings and then pour the Mountain Dew around the dumplings.
7. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
