Easy Fruit Dumplings

2295946365_d753a3a686_oI originally found this recipe on Pioneer Woman’s website and for some reason it took me a really long time to try it. The first time I made it was when we had company over for dinner and it was quick and easy to prepare. The second time was last night and my youngest preceded to ask if we could have it for dessert every night. With that kind of endorsement I knew it needed to end up here so I could access it easily and quickly. If you are serving a crowd double the recipe, but I’m posting it in the quantities as if I were making it for my family of four. This recipe would work really well with frozen/fresh peaches also.

  • 1 medium-large sized apple
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • 1 stick of salted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • cinnamon to taste
  • 6 oz Sprite

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 8 x 11 buttered pan. Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour Sprite around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.

*If all you have are small apples in the fridge leave them in quarters and cut up two apples. That’s what I did last night and the ratio of apple to breading was perfect.
