My baking experiment #72 – apple dumplings

Today is national apple dumpling day. I’ve never had an apple dumpling before. According to Wiki: apple dumplings are a native food in the northeastern United States, around Pennsylvania. A very common recipe among the Pennsylvania Dutch, it is often eaten as a breakfast item, but they are also a very common dessert item after meals. It’s also popular to eat them with ice cream.


  • 1/2 can refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 apple, peeled, cored and cut into 4 wedges
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp Mountain Dew or oj


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Unfold cresent rolls and cut them out along dotted lines. You will need 4 triangles.
  2. Place an apple wedge on wide edge of each dough triangle and roll up, maintaining croissant shape. (You will need to close the ends to cover all of the apple wedge.) Place dumplings in 4 ramekins.
  3. Combine melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Stir in soda or juice. Pour mixture over dumplings.
  4. Cover ramekins with foil and bake 10-15 minutes. Remove foil and bake additional 10-15 minutes.

Yum… these apple dumplings are so delicious! They taste like apple pie with gravy! So good! Can’t believe i’ve never had them before. And they’re super fast & easy to make too. Perfect with ice-cream. I believe i’ll be making these dumplings quite frequently 🙂
