Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings

This recipe tastes as good as it looks. And go-figure it's another amazing recipe found on the blog of  The Pioneer Woman. I am just loving her cook book and my daughter and I are determined to make every recipe in her cookbook. I suppose we better hurry up because I just pre-ordered her new cookbook that comes out next year.

What a great recipe for a hot Apple Dumpling. I can't even say I've ever even had an Apple Dumpling, but this recipe was great! It was so quick to put together and the results seemed like I had slaved hours in the kitchen (which I had not)! I made these in my motorhome kitchen while camping. So, if I can make them there, anyone can make them.

Apple Dumplings
adapted from Pioneer Woman's Blog (February 2008)

2 sticks butter (I would like to try with only one stick of butter, next time)
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 tubes crescent rolls
2 granny smith apples
12 ounces of Mountain Dew (use only half the can)

Cinnamon & Pecans (chopped)

Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream

Peel and slice your apples. Wrap each slice in a crescent dough triangle and place in sprayed (greased) 9 x 13 pan. In a bowl, melt your butter and stir in sugar and vanilla, lightly mix and leave grainy. Pour over top of the wrapped apples. Pour one-half of the can of Mountain Dew all around and sprinkle with cinnamon and pecans. Place in 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve hot with ice cream!


  1. YUM!!! So simple and if I had a can of Mtn Dew in the house I'd make them right now. Adding that to my grocery list as I have everything else and I now NEED these...yeah thanks a lot and my waist thanks you too!

  2. Lisa, you can use 7=up also

  3. I ended up making these sans soda, but with apple juice concentrate and they were a huge hit. I posted and shared the linky love: Apple Dumplings on Cook Lisa Cook
