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!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 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
  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.
