Apple Dumplings

These Apple Dumplings are the easiest baked apple dumplings EVER! They’re made with crescent rolls, then baked with butter-cinnamon sugar perfection- plus some sparkling water or you can use a lemon-lime soda! Try them- you’ll love them! Some of the ingredients might make you wonder, but trust me on this one: these are impossibly delicious. They taste like a small piece of apple tart heaven! They’re best when served immediately, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
