  • 2 large granny smith apples
  • 2 containers crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 ounces lemon lime soda sprite, mountain dew, 7-up, ginger ale


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees f
  • Grease a 13 X 9-inch baking dish
  • Wash, peel, core and slice apples into 8 slices each ( total of 16 slices) Place in small bowl or clean surface, and sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Open tubes of crescent roll dough, and divide into triangles along perforations
  • Place 1 apple slice on the wide end of each crescent roll triangle. Roll up dough over the apple slice, leaving ends open. Repeat until all apples and dough are used up
  • Place dumplings into greased baking dish
  • Place butter and brown sugar in small saucepan, and melt over low to medium heat on stove. Stir frequently until well combined and smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract
  • pour caramel sauce over dumplings. The sauce should cover the bottom of the baking dish
  • Pour Sprite around edges of the baking dish
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until tops are firm and golden brown, dumplings are puffy and sauce is bubbling
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving


You can easily halve the recipe for fewer dumplings. Add just enough soda pop so that the tops of the dumplings are dry.
Sprinkle some white sugar over the dumplings after they are done baking for extra sparkle, if desired.
