- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons grapefruit or citrus soda
- 1 to 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- Vanilla ice cream, optional
- Unroll crescent rolls and separate into eight triangles. Cut apple into eight wedges. Place an apple wedge and two red-hots on each crescent triangle. Bring up corners of dough to center; pinch edges to seal. Place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish.

Reviews for Crescent Apple Dumplings
"We don't like tart apple. I use delicious or Gala, cut in small squares. Also add nutmeg to the cinnamon (no pumpkin pie spice). 8oz mt dew works well. I'm making it tomorrow, but adding cheesecake filling (made from scratch) with the apples."
"Can someone explain to me exactly what it means by pouring soda around the rolls? In the pan around them or over them? And do you sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice on the rolls or on the soda? I hate to seem dense, but I'm not quite getting a mental picture! Your help is appreciated! :-)"
"I made this for a family get together and the whole pan was gone. You can use diet soda (mt. dew, 7-up etc.) as well to help reduce the sugar/carbs."
"My son loved helping with the recipe. I will be making this again."
