These Easy Country Apple Dumplings are soft and gooey on the bottom, but crispy on top, and they taste like apple pie. So easy and ridiculously good. Plus the house smells amazing while they bake!
August 2018 will be filed under “The month when everything broke.”
We had a 30×15 section of our yard that was just dirt and weeds. The rest of our yard is wonderful. But of course, all I saw was this huge ugly rectangular patch every time I walk outside. Awful. So, after three years, we finally hired a landscaper to fix it up! Glorious!
But then everything INside our house decided to break. Come on! Really??
Our 10 year streak of not having any major expenses, not only came to an end, but we got throttled. New air conditioner and furnace, new mattress, new toilet. And both vehicles are having problems. Plus the kids went back to school…and we know how expensive school clothing and supplies are. *sobs*
Good lord. So Top Ramen, anyone? For like an entire year?
THIS my friends…this is why we’re frugal. Save save save!
And we sort of have to laugh because why we decided to finally fix that section of the yard at the END of summer, one will never know. Oy. Thank goodness we have such mild weather, so we can enjoy it all year long. But the temps have dropped and I’m now craving Fall food. Apples, pumpkin, and squash are all on my radar.
I’ve made these Country Apple Dumplings for breakfast three weekends in a row! I think they’re more of a dessert, though…topped with some vanilla ice cream. Omg.
They’re soft and gooey on the bottom, but crispy on top, and the taste is very similar to apple pie. So easy and ridiculously good. Plus the house smells amazing while they bake!

Easy Country Apple Dumplings
- 2 small apples ,peeled and cored
- 8 ounce tube refrigerated Pillsbury crescent roll dough
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup Sprite soda
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 8x8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Cut each apple into 4 wedges.
- Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles.
- Place an apple wedge near the small end of the dough triangle, then roll up. Pinch the ends to seal. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
- In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add in the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon; stir until combined and smooth.
- Drizzle butter mixture over the dough.
- Pour the Sprite to the sides of the dumplings (not on top) so a nice crust is formed while baking.
- Bake until golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a fork, 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes.
- Serve for breakfast or make it a dessert with some vanilla ice cream!
