Stretchy pants are a MUST for this recipe today.  All of the desserts I post here on Wishes and Dishes are pretty indulgent, but this one might make all the rest look actually kind of healthy.  This is not meant to discourage you from making these.  In fact, run to the kitchen right now and make them because they are worth every single calorie.  This one may actually be the best fall food recipe I’ve made to date and these absolutely need to happen for Thanksgiving dessert this year.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

These fancy pants Country Cinnamon Apple Dumplings may look intimidating but I promise you that they are super easy to make.  I mean, the dough is simply store-bought crescent rolls (“roll candy” is what I like to call them). Shortcuts are my BFF sometimes when it comes to cooking and baking! Don’t be skeptical of the Mountain Dew in the sauce.  The Mountain Dew actually makes the rich, sweet butter glaze just so much better.  As if it wasn’t good enough with all that butter?!  These will be the easiest apple dumplings you ever make and you will be making them a LOT!

These warm and comforting dumplings like to be served warm with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream.  They told me so…

Easy Country Cinnamon Apple Dumplings dessert or breakfast recipe is a classic fall and holiday treat loaded with cinnamon and smothered in a buttery Mountain Dew sauce!
Ingredients
  • 2 whole Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 and ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • 1 can (12 Oz.) Mountain Dew soda
Instructions
  1. Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices. Roll each apple slice up in a crescent roll triangle to make the dumplings (don't worry about sealing the sides or anything).
  2. Place dumplings in a 9 x 13 greased/buttered baking dish or casserole dish.
  3. Melt butter on medium/low heat, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir until incorporated, and evenly pour entire mixture over apple dumplings.
  4. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges/perimeter of the pan. It will look like a lot of liquid but it's fine.
  5. Sprinkle evenly with some cinnamon (don't skimp, but also don't overdue it) and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  6. Scoop some of the sweet sauce from the pan over the top of the dumplings before serving. Serve them warm. Add a scoop of ice cream on top, if desired.

    My middle school self would have gone crazy over this! I was a Mountain Dew addict and I can only imagine how sweet and gooey that makes the glaze. Oooh la la!

      Yes you can make it ahead of time! Maybe just wait to pour on the sauce til right before baking. (But can have it all ready to go)
