I have been eating apple dumplings since I was a little girl. My mom used to make them for us every Sunday after church. I remember the smell of the cinnamon and sugar wafting through the house as she prepared the dumplings. I would sit at the kitchen table and watch her roll out the dough, cut it into small circles, and then fill each one with a peeled and cored apple. She would then sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar, and wrap them up in the dough.
Once the dumplings were ready, she would place them in a baking dish and pour a mixture of melted butter, brown sugar, and a bit of water over them. Then she would bake them in the oven until they were golden brown and bubbly. The smell of the apples and cinnamon was heavenly.
When the dumplings were done, my mom would serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I would savor every bite, the sweet and tart apples, the buttery and sugary sauce, and the flaky crust. It was a treat that I looked forward to every week.
As I got older, I started to make apple dumplings myself. I would use my mom’s recipe and tweak it a bit to make it my own. I would add a bit more sugar and cinnamon, and sometimes I would even add a bit of nutmeg or allspice to the mix. I would also experiment with different types of apples, trying to find the perfect combination of tart and sweet.
Making apple dumplings has become a tradition in my family. Whenever we get together, we make a batch of dumplings and enjoy them together. It’s a great way to spend time with family and friends, and it always brings back fond memories of my mom in the kitchen.
Apple dumplings are a comforting treat that will always bring a smile to my face. They remind me of my mom, of happy times spent together, and of the simple pleasure of sharing a delicious dessert.
- two Granny Smith apples
- two 8-ounce cans of crescent rolls
- one cup of butter
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- one teaspoon of vanilla
- dash of cinnamon
- 12- ounce can of Mountain Dew soda.
- To make a delicious dessert, start by peeling and coring some apples. Cut each apple into eight slices, and then wrap each slice in a crescent roll. Place the wrapped apples in a buttered 9 x 13 pan. In a separate bowl, melt some butter and add a small amount of sugar and vanilla, stirring until mixed. Pour the butter mixture over the apples, and then pour some Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle some cinnamon over the top and bake the dish at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Once done, serve the dessert with ice cream and spoon some of the sweet sauce from the pan over the top. Finally, you may want to confess your indulgence quickly!
