The recipe comes from Mississippi Church Suppers, a recipe collection by Great American Publishers.  The cookbook has chapters devoted to appetizers, soups & salads, vegetables & side dishes, main dishes, and desserts & sweets – all of which would be great to take to a church potluck.

How To Make Apple Dumplings

To make this super simple apple dessert, you need the following ingredients:

  • 2 apples, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith, peeled and cored
  • 1 8-count cans crescent rolls
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups 7-Up, or other lemon soda

You begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  Butter a 9×13-inch baking dish and set it aside.

Cut each apple into 8 slices. Roll each slice in 1 crescent roll and place in the buttered dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and then cook until it has thickened.

Remove the pan from the heat and pour the syrup over the dumplings. Pour the soda in the middle and along the edges of a pan (not over rolls).

Bake the apple dumplings for 35 to 45 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Serve warm.
