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.
ConclusionThe 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.
