My son-in-law is diabetic, so I reduced the butter to 3/4 stick of butter melted with 1/2 cup of Splenda sugar blend, and used Diet Mountain Dew. Wonderful!

This was good but, the crescent rolls just tasted like preservative maximum. It did not taste fresh, like pie dough. So I made them with pre-made pie dough, cut the circle in 8 pieces(triangle) added 2 apple slices, sprinkled the tops with alot of cinnamon and brown sugar, followed everything else and, they were so much better.You could cut back on the sugar too. They were plenty sweet!

**UPDATE 9.1.14** you absolutely MUST try these with fresh peaches in place of the apples, it's almost a religious experience!! ORIGINAL RATING: Oh my goodness, even after all the stellar reviews i was NOT expecting these to be as insanely yummy as they were! Halved the recipe as it was just for the hub and me and used a large gala apple, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white, and added a teaspoon of vanilla after the sugars had melted. Poured over the little bundles of joy and then poured 1/2 can diet ginger ale over everything. We didn't have any vanilla ice cream but DID fortunately have whipped cream, holy moly we were in heaven and ate four of them between us!!! Amazingly easy and one of the best desserts I've ever made, this is definitely company worthy. Thank you thank you thank you for submitting this!!!

I made this tonight they are incredible. I halved the recipe and made one change. I used 3/4 cup sugar(1/2 cup white, 1/4 cup brown). Will be making this again and again.

I've made these apple dumplings for years and have received nothing but wonderful comments. The secret with the melted butter and sugar is to continue cooking it until it is well blended and thickens, stirring constantly. Then stir in the cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

This recipe was a huge hit at the last family gathering. Both my Mother and my Grandmother asked me for the recipe! After a few trials I've found that the key is to 1) coat the apples in cinnamon and sugar before wrapping 2) Use 2 parts white to 1 part brown sugar in the sauce. simmer until it makes a thick, rich caramel and pulls away from the side of the pot. then add 1 tsp. vanilla along with the cinnamon. With these tweaks the dumplings were not soggy at all as some reviewers had mentioned. Thanks for the great post!

This is great! Since this is super fattening, I made some changes & couldn't tell any difference. I used reduced fat crescent rolls, cut the sugar to 1/2c. & 1/2 c. splenda & used diet mountain dew. I cut back the butter to 1 stick + 2 tblsp. Does anyone know what the fat grams & calories would be with these changes?

This recipe reminds me of the apple dumplings my Southern Granny made, absolutely delicious! For those that say they are soggy, that is the way old fashioned dumplings tasted, soft and gooey and syrupy on the bottom and slightly crisp on the top. These were perfect! Everyone who has tried them has loved them and I live in the state of New York, not a southern state! I did try cutting the sugar back to 1 cup and that worked for me but everyone loved the original sweetness. Thank you so much, Lindy, for the "diabetic" recipe, I used only 1/2 cup of butter with 1 cup of splenda and diet Mountain Dew and it was great, only 4 Weight Watcher points compared to the 7 for the revised original recipe (with only 1 cup of sugar). I made mine with Northern Spy apples which may account for the extra "sweetness" to my dish but I would give this dish 10 stars if I could. Definitely a comfort dish and, as my sister says, there is not an easier dessert dish out there and it is pretty enough to take somewhere. Thanks again!
