World’s Easiest Apple Dumplings Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to the World’s Easiest Apple Dumplings Recipe! I know what you’re thinking, apple dumplings are so hard to make, but I promise you will leave this page with drool-worthy apple dumplings on your table.

I found this recipe tucked in my binder, clipped from Rachael Ray Magazine. I’ve seen different versions of this floating around. I liked this one because it used Mountain Dew- which I stocked up on last week at CVS.

I couldn’t wait to tell my husband the secret ingredient in this! I am not a fan of Mountain Dew, but oh does it do wonderful stuff to this dessert! Don’t forget to take the foil off the second half of baking as I did! Because of that, mine took a little longer in the oven, but it was worth the wait. The apples were tender and sweet.

This is a quick ode to apple pie. Perfect for the company because it looks fancy, especially with a side of ice cream, and its a cinch to make!

Without further ado, I present you with the World’s Easiest Apple Dumplings Recipe. Please hold all applauds until the end of the recipe! 😉

Apple Dumplings

World’s Easiest Apple Dumplings Recipe Ingredients:

Flour for dusting
1 8-oz. can crescent rolls
1 Granny Smith apple- peeled and wedged (I used Gala)
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup Mountain Dew

How To Make World’s Easiest Apple Dumplings Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

On a surface dusted with flour, unfold the rolls.

Peel and wedge apples. I love this for wedging apples

Place an apple wedge on the wide edge of each “triangle” and roll up (I used the Big and Buttery Crescents, so mine made 6. I also used two smaller Gala apples, so I rolled two wedges each).

Place the dumplings in an 8-inch square baking dish.

In a saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and cinnamon over medium heat; stir in the Mountain Dew.

Pour the mixture over the dumplings.

Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes; Remove the foil and bake 15 minutes longer, or until golden brown on top.

Serve with vanilla ice cream. YUMMY!

Can 7 UP be substituted for the Mountain Dew?
