Cathy’s apple dumplings

Lana Gomez, West Hollywood, CA (All the Wright Stuff cookbook)


Serves: 8

  • 4 medium Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls (16)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 can Mountain Dew
  • cinnamon to top
  • vanilla ice cream

Lightly coat an 8″ x 11″ baking dish with butter. Peel, quarter and core the apples. Wrap each quarter in one triangle of dough. Place into dish (OK if touching).

In small saucepan, melt butter and sugar until combined. Pour over top so well covered. Pour soda over each dumpling. Sprinkle cinnamon over top.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until tops golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

*Chef’s note: OHMYGOSH was this good. Probably the easiest delicious dessert you ever could make. DO IT. I’d serve it to company it’s so great and easy. I’m not even ashamed to admit I ate one cold left over the next day–doesn’t even have to be hot to be delicious. But you still have to eat one warm out of the oven with plain vanilla bean ice cream. MMM! I don’t know who Cathy was/is, but she sure knew/knows what tastes good.
