  • 2 green apples diced
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon apple pie spice
  • cup Sprite or 7UP
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup lemon juice


  • Peel, core, and dice apples. Place the diced apples in a medium bowl with water and lemon juice to prevent browning of the apples.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish and set aside.
  • Drain the apples from the water and place them back in the bowl. In a small separate bowl combine ½ tablespoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix together and then sprinkle over the apples and stir to coat all sides of the diced apples.
  • Roll out crescent rolls into individual triangles. Place 3 tablespoons of apples on each triangle. Roll the crescent roll triangle and seal the edges together to make dumplings.
  • Place the rolled crescent rolls in the baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar, sugar, flour, vanilla extract, and apple pie spice. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour butter mixture over the tops of the dumplings. Pour the Sprite around the edges of the dumplings.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.


TIP: An apple corer and apple slicer are invaluable tools when you are making apple desserts.
TIP: Make sure you are very precise with the amount of soda you use. If you use too much, there’s a chance you will end up with soggy bottoms on your apple dumplings. Or worse, they don’t cook properly. So be careful to use just the right amount.
