Apple Dumplings

This next recipe is for apple dumplings in a semi-homemade kinda way! 🙂 It uses refrigerated crescent roll dough and Mountain Dew! I know the pop is kinda a weird ingredient, but all of the reviews on were raving about how easy and delicious this dish is. I have to admit, I’m not a Mountain Dew fan. I don’t really like the taste of it, nor do I like how unhealthy it is- but I guess since there is only a small portion of the soda per dumpling, it should be fine! 🙂


  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle Mountain Dew


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour Mountain Dew™ over the dumplings.
  4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

These turned out great. The dumplings were crisp on the top, and moist on the bottom. There was still quite a bit of sauce in the pan when I first made them. I served these with vanilla ice cream- I know what your thinking, Mountain Dew WITH ice cream! 🙂
