Apple Dumplings

This has to be the easiest ever recipe for Apple Dumplings, and it is far too delicious for my own good. The recipe is adapted from Tasty Kitchen, and it takes very little time to put together.






Apple Dumplings
2 whole Granny Smith apples
2 cans (8 ounces each) crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 can (12 ounce) Sprite soda
Cinnamon, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch  pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices. Roll each apple in a triangle of crescent roll dough. Place in prepared pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour 1/2 can Sprite around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon; bake for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, if desired.


Pour the Sprite carefully around the edge of the pan so the sugar/butter mixture stays on top of the apples. When my sister makes this recipe, she uses the whole can of soda, so somewhere between 1/2 can and a whole can, depending on how much syrup you like with the dumplings. The original recipe called for a Mountain Dew instead of Sprite, but the Sprite works for me.


Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.


You need a bowl of this Apple Dumpling, it's better than good.
