These are so quick and easy to make. I made them the first time for dessert with Sunday dinner and everybody loved them and were going for seconds!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle caffeinated citrus-flavored soda (such as Mountain Dew®)
  • 4 small Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent roll dough

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. 2 Heat the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside. Divide the crescent roll dough into 16 triangles. Roll 1 slice of apple with the dough and arrange on the prepared pan. Pour the butter mixture over the wrapped apples, then pour the citrus-flavored soda on top.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.

  1. Wasn't a fan.
  2. Yum! Best. Recipe. EVER!:)
  3. I've been making this recipe since I first learned when I was a kid. I always use brown sugar and I wisk in the cinnamon and a little nutmeg in with the brown sugar. This is really awesome with cinnamon ice cream or fresh whipped cream. GREAT white trash party offering. EDITED REVIEW: I made - Read more ...
  4. Wow - What a fabulous recipe! I mean a dessert just doesn't get any easier or any tastier than this! Definitely not for those counting calories...although I'm sure it could be lightened up a bit if you wanted to! I used half white sugar and half brown sugar, added 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg. I also - Read more ...
  5. My husband has been making these for years...another recipe on this site called Country Apple Dumplings. Only difference is this one calls for vanilla extract which he added any ways. Regardless a family favourite. Yum
  6. Delicious and so easy! I use 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup sugar and diet Dew. Still wonderful. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
  7. Every year we go to a nearby apple orchard and pick apples with our kids. We got a whole bushel of apples this year and after we got them home we realized it was a lot more than it looked like at the orchard! I made these yesterday and they are soooo good! I have - Read more ...
  8. So easy so delicious quickly became a family favorite. I had my 15 yo daughter make them with these changes Gala apples(what we had on hand)Sunkist orange soda (also what we had on hand)and brown in stead of white sugar. I love recipes that adapt well and will use this one over and over. TY!
  9. Very simple and easy to make. I am not certain if I didn't read the reviews in their entirety but didn't know this: REMOVE DUMPLINGS FROM PAN WHILE HOT AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER TAKING OUT OF THE OVEN. Once cooled the sugar and soda caramelizes and it is extremely difficult to remove dumplings. Also add sugar - Read more ...
  10. This is an amazing dessert. I do not cook the sugar mixture & use 2 large apples. Also I use lower fat crescent rolls, Splenda for the sugar & sugar-free Mountain Dew. No one can tell the difference. I get requests to bring this to potluck all the time.
