Apple Dumplings

Baby Boy and I are ready for Spring. Both Saturday and Sunday mornings were overcast, but just after lunch the sky cleared and we had a short period of (relatively) warm and pleasant weather. We seized the opportunity and went for walks around town. I love getting out and going for walks, as I spend my work week sitting in front of a computer. Baby Boy enjoys the walks too, babbling away and occasionally blowing raspberries as I talk nonsense back to him. Quality Daddy and Boy time.

We didn’t do too much cooking this weekend. I made our Wild Rice soup Saturday for dinner,  and sourdough pizza on Sunday. I also made these delicious Apple Dumplings for today’s Secret Recipe Club reveal. I was assigned Lisa’s blog, Cook Lisa Cook. There were a lot of tasty recipes we had to choose from, including a tasty looking apple pulled pork, but after a long week of work and side work I decided to satisfy my sweet tooth with apple dumplings.

We ate these hot out of the oven – Rachel’s comment upon her first bite “Oh my goodness”. These would go great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

apple dumplings


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1/2 can frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Peel and slice your apples into 4 chunks per apple. Wrap each slice in a crescent dough triangle and place in a sprayed (greased) 8x8-inch pan.
  3. In a bowl melt the butter and then lightly stir in the sugar and vanilla so that the mixture remains grainy. Pour over top of the wrapped apples.
  4. Spread the frozen apple concentrate over the wrapped apples and pour in the water. Sprinkle with cinnamon and pecans. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
  5. Serve hot or at room temperature.
