Alona’s Apple Dumplings: Make a ‘Mountain’ of Sweet Goodness!

Apple Dumplings are one of the things that can make you drool just thinking about them.  The first time Alona mentioned them, I didn’t know whether to fuss at her for not telling me about them sooner, or make her turn the car around and make me some.

I am amazed at how easy these are to make.  But I have to confess.  When she mentioned the Mountain Dew, I stopped in my tracks.

My thoughts were that these would be some very soggy Apple Dumplings.  But I am always game to try a new recipe.

And I am so glad I did.  In a matter of minutes, I was popping mine in the oven.  It didn’t take long for that apple and cinnamon aroma to fill the entire house.

Never again will I question Alona when it comes to cooking.  I don’t think there is anything she cannot cook – and cook well!

Alona’s Apple Dumplings


  • 2 cans Crescent Rolls
  • 2 baking Apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4″ to 1/2″ slices
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • I teaspoon Cinnamon, mixed with 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 can Mountain Dew
  • Butter


Unroll and separate the crescent rolls.  Place an apple slice on the long end, and roll up.  Repeat with the remaining crescents and apples. As you roll each crescent, place in a well-buttered 13” x 9” x 2” casserole dish.

Sprinkle with brown sugar, and then the cinnamon and sugar mix on top of the crescent rolls.  Do the top with butter.  Pour Mountain Dew over the entire pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or until the crescents are golden brown and the Mountain Dew is thick and bubbly.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Got Ice Cream?

A good vanilla ice cream is an excellent way to serve your Apple Dumplings!
