Easy Apple Dumplings Recipe: You'll Never Guess the Secret Ingredient in This Apple Dessert Recipe

This apple dumpling recipe is simple and delicious, and is easily doubled for larger families. The secret ingredient? Citrus soda! 

You’ll need:

  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into eight wedges
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 ounces citrus soda (Mountain Dew)

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 13x9-inch baking dish.
  2. Separate crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll one apple wedge into one dough triangle, pinch to seal and place in prepared baking dish.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in cinnamon and sugar. Pour over apple dumplings.
  4. Pour Mountain Dew over the dumplings.
  5. Bake until golden brown, about 35-45 minutes. Serve warm with a side of vanilla ice cream.

Are there any current information about this recipe any current comments being made on what kind of apples to be used or brown sugar or terminangal sugar or cinnamon and different spices

Rosseyes , I’ve been making this recipe for years as the recipe calls for above. No adjustments needed. Still prefer Granny Smith, though we have used other apples on occasion.
I'm wondering if there's any other ingredients that are key to this recipe and any others you're coming up with recently I'd appreciate it
