Delicious Apple Dumplings Recipe


    • 4 large apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 package refrigerated crescent roll dough (8 rolls)
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup apple cider or apple juice


    Preparing the Apples:

    Peel, core, and slice the apples into 8 equal wedges each.

    In a bowl, combine granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.

    Toss the apple slices in the sugar and spice mixture until well coated. Set aside.

    Assembling the Dumplings:

    Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

    Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate it into 8 triangles.

    Place one apple wedge at the wide end of each triangle and roll it up, sealing the edges to fully enclose the apple.

    Creating the Sauce:

    In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat.

    Stir in brown sugar, vanilla extract, and apple cider or apple juice.

    Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring continuously until the sugar is completely dissolved.

    Remove from heat.

    Baking the Dumplings:

    Grease a baking dish and arrange the assembled apple dumplings in it.

    Pour the prepared sauce over the dumplings, ensuring they are well coated.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the dumplings are golden brown and cooked through.


    Allow the apple dumplings to cool for a few minutes before serving.

    Spoon some of the sauce from the baking dish over each serving.

    Optionally, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.

    Enjoy your delicious homemade apple dumplings!
