This super Easy Apple Dumplings recipe happens to be one of my favorite year round desserts. Since the recipe uses store bought crescent rolls, it comes together quite easily. You will find Mountain Dew as a secret ingredient. The soda adds some additional sugar to the recipe and allows them to bake perfectly.
Fall foods are on my mind and I have been sharing some great apple recipes with all of you this past week. I bought a ton of apples last week and decided I would go on a comfort food dessert run. I will say, I have probably gained a few pounds but my family has been happy campers. The hubby and kiddos really enjoy most any dessert that includes apples in the ingredient list. The Caramel Apple Pie Cookies were gone within minutes.
I really like making quick and easy desserts that use store bought biscuits or dough. I find no reason to spend hours in the kitchen making dough when something store bought can work great when I am pressed for time.
Dumplings always remind me of my childhood. Growing up, we would enjoy dumplings stuffed with all sorts of different fruits. Apple Dumplings were always my favorite. A hot apple dumpling makes for a perfect dessert.
Since we have a large family, having a large dish filled with dumplings will feed just us, ha ha. If you are needing to feed a small crowd this recipe will be perfect. I am considering making a couple batches for our next holiday gathering.
The store bought crescent rolls work so perfectly in this recipe. I quite often buy a bunch when they are on sale. During the fall and winter months they are great for making desserts, snacks like our Pepperoni Pizza Crescents or even just as a side with dinner.
You too can whip up this super Easy Apple Dumplings recipe. Just grab some store bought crescent rolls, some apples (I used granny smith), butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. In just a few minutes time, you can have your home smelling like fall.
