Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings Recipe

The crescent roll exterior makes these dumplings buttery and flakey. Dip them in caramel sauce or serve with homemade ice cream for an additional treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 can crescent rolls, such as Pillsbury
  • 1 tart apple, peeled, cored, and cut into eight wedges
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 Cups light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 Cups club soda
  • Juice of half a lemon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, lay out the crescent rolls, cutting along the perforated lines. Place the apple on the widest edge of the crescent roll and roll the croissant as you normally would. Be sure to pinch the edges closed. Put the dumplings in a baking dish and set aside.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the butter, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda, and lemon juice. Melt the butter and stir to combine. Then pour the mixture over the dumplings.

Cover the dumplings with foil, and bake the dumplings in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Then bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.

Crescent Roll Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Crescent Roll Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
