Today’s recipe marks the sixth and last installment of the Apple Series. It has been a fun few weeks experimenting with different ways to use apples in cooking. I hope you guys have enjoyed this miniseries as much as I have. This last recipe is an easy way to make homemade apple dumplings. And I have to say, I think they turned out fairly well. The only thing I might change if I make this again would be to cut the apple slices a little thicker. Other than that, pretty good and definitely easy to make!
What you’ll need:
- 1 large apple
- 1 can Pillsbury crescent dough
- 2/3 can of Sprite or 7-Up
- ½ Cup butter
- 2/3 Cup sugar
- ½ Tsp vanilla
- ½ Tsp cinnamon
First, preheat the oven at 350 degrees F and grease a high-sided baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Then, peel the apple and cut into wedges.
Separate the crescent dough into its pre-cut triangles. Place an apple wedge on the wide end of the triangle and roll up. Pinch the ends closed and place in the baking dish. Repeat until all dough triangles are gone ( I ended up with about 3 apple wedges left over).
In a small pan, melt the butter. Once this is melted, stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Increase the heat, stirring frequently to combine the sugar and butter. This should slowly thicken as it combines. Once thickened sufficiently, remove pan from heat and add the vanilla.
Pour this mixture over the dumplings. Take the can of Sprite or 7-Up and pour around 2/3 of the soda over the dumplings on top of the cinnamon mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until dough is golden brown.
Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
I really hope that you guys have enjoyed this miniseries. If you would like to see more things like this, let me know! I’d love to hear what you guys have to say.
