Apple Dumplings – Alabama NewsCenter – Tricks and Tips

Recipe: Apple Dumplings - Alabama NewsCenter

When it comes to apple desserts, it takes a lot to impress me. I’m just not a huge fan of the texture of a cooked apple, but that was before I met my friend called apple dumpling. She’s warm, sweet and a little flaky, but hey … who isn’t these days?

Seriously, these little babies are my all-time favorite apple dessert. They are warm, gooey and the crunchy part with the sugar on top … good gracious. And easy – it really probably couldn’t get any easier. You put some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream with these babies and prepare to be amazed. I know it sounds weird with the Sprite and all, but just trust me.

These things will make your tongue slap your brains out, as my sweet BigMama used to say.

Pour Sprite into empty space in the middle of the pan, not over the crescents. (Stacey Little / Southern Bite)
