Tips and Tricks:

  • Be sure to only pour the caramel sauce directly onto the dumplings. The Sprite should go on the bottom of the baking pan in between the dumplings
  • for a shortcut method – Use a device that quickly cores and sliced the apples into wedges
  • serve apple dumplings with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream

Ingredients:

  • Granny Smith apples – these are my preferred apple for this recipe. They bake up tender and hold their texture. Their tart flavor lends well to this dessert
  • refrigerated crescent roll dough triangles – You can get original or flaky
  • brown sugar – I used light brown sugar, but if you only have dark – that is fine too
  • vanilla extract – I always use pure vanilla extract,  but if all you have is imitation, that is perfectly fine
  • Sprite – or a similar soda like 7Up, generic lemon-lime soda, or Mountain Dew
