Apple Dumplings with Cider Sauce

Lauren Cooper


Warm and comforting, this recipe for Apple Dumplings with Cider Sauce produces a dessert that would serve as a perfect ending for anything from a cozy family dinner to an elegant dinner party. Lauren of The Food Jew shares her remarkable recipe remake.

Lauren says, “The original recipe calls for apple slices wrapped in canned crescent rolls topped with a butter-sugar mixture and drenched in Mountain Dew before baking. While I love the idea of a quick and easy apple dumpling recipe, the thought of baking with Mountain Dew left me feeling a little queasy. So I spent a week remaking this dorm-style recipe into an amazing dessert.”

Lauren’s replacements — puff pastry for crescent rolls and sparkling apple cider for the Mountain Dew — sound so much more appetizing. Lauren adds, “Apple dumplings are rich and delicious on their own, but if you want to guild the lily — as I always do — serve them in a bowl with a liberal pour of heavy cream.”
