Soda Apple Dumplings (with Sprite, 7Up, Sierra Mist, or Mountain Dew)

Submitted by: TRAILHAPPY

Introduction

This is an adaptation of a tasty dessert that has been a raging success in the South for the last few years. :) I adapted it to be less sweet and fattening, and the lower sugar content is noticeable. It's about the right level of sweetness for a brunch dish or light dessert. If you want a sweeter taste, it's nice served with frozen vanilla yogurt. However, if you want the original recipe proportions so that the sugar carmelizes on the bottom of the pan (even yummier!), do this: 1) Increase butter to 1 C; 2) Replace fresh apples with canned, sweetened and spiced apples (for pie); 3) Add 1.5 C sugar; 4) Decrease soda to 12 oz. NOTE: This is not a low-calorie or healthy dessert, by any means! I just needed a way to use up some Sprite. Tasty to serve guests, but not kind to your body! You could also halve the serving size and just serve one crescent roll per serving instead of two.

Ingredients

    2 cans crescent rolls
    2 medium Granny Smith apples
    .25 C salted butter (or unsalted; this is just what I had on hand)
    1 t ground cinnamon
    16 oz Sprite

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice apples into 8 wedges each. Melt butter in a skillet, pour some in a 9"x13" pan to grease it, and then mix the cinnamon and Sprite in with the rest of the butter in the skillet. Now unroll all the crescent rolls and roll up an apple slice in each roll, starting from the wider end. Place each rolled apple in the 9"x13" pan. Pour Sprite-butter-cinnamon mixture over all, and bake 30-45 minutes. Top will brown slightly. Enjoy! I calculated the serving size to be two crescent rolls per person, but if you serve only one per person, it will greatly decrease the calories!

  • Little to high in calories, and fat content is way over the scale. Is this for one serving or 8? - 4/15/10

    I know the calories and fat are ridiculous; that's why I made the disclaimer in the recipe description. I posted the recipe because I figured someone else, like me, might have extra Sprite to use up. Feel free to not make this if you're not willing to budget the calories and fat!
