If the world was to find anything common with each other, it would be dumplings. Some might be more familiar with the Southeast Asian version of the pork-filled dough wrap. Though, you would be surprised how diverse the pocket of goodness can get. From China’s jiaozi, a steamed or boiled pork and shrimp dumpling, to Czech’s Knedlíky, boiled bread dumplings served with traditional Czech sauces or goulash, and the all-American sweet apple dumplings, the array is endless. 

A popular American dessert, apple dumpling delegates a sweet, crispy, and buttery flavor in one bite. A famous recipe that originated from Pennsylvania, it was commonly known as a breakfast meal. A Granny Smith apple slice wrapped with crescent rolls and sprinkled with sugar on top, it’s a perfect snack, especially for the kids. 

This apple dumpling recipe is a great way to gather the family together and unleash your inner artist. Apart from rolling the slice onto the roll, you can also try different types of folds like a real dumpling master. While some might choose to make their own dough, this apple dumpling recipe can simplify the process for you. It lessens the time for making and adds more for eating!

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have Granny Smiths on hand. Can I use other kinds of apples instead?

Yes! Jonagold apples resemble a honeyed sweetness and Honeycrisp is also perfect for apple dumplings with its crisp texture and tart flavor. You can also just try using the apples you have on hand. Just make sure to keep checking on them every once in a while to see if they’re baking out crisp and not mushy.

Can I use other sodas instead?

Other sodas you can use are Mountain Dew, Ginger ale, or Fanta. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can replace sprite with Coca-Cola, Pepsi, or other soda products you have on hand.

Conclusion

The sweet, juicy apple slice wrapped in the soft crescent roll is paired with a candied-like glaze. The mixture of butter, sugar, and soda on top created a crust like texture due to the sugar caramelizing in the oven and, once cooled slightly, solidified in a transparent glaze. This dessert is truly a pocket of heavenly flavors.
