Do you think 7-up would change the taste much?


Know ginger ale works.

RE: RECIPE: apple dumplings with sprite

That's even better. I always have that on hand. Thanks!

RE: RECIPE: apple dumplings with sprite

I just copied this recipe from another thread, Glenda. I just read here that you said ginger ale would work here, I think I'm going to give it a shot the next time I have a dessert to make! Thanks.


Someone asked if you could use peaches, so here's one I found

Peach Dumplings with sprite
2 cans crescent rolls
Sliced peaches, canned or fresh (drain if using canned)
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
1 can Sprite
Cinnamon (optional)
Separate the crescent rolls. Place one peach slice on each section and roll up beginning with the wide end. Place in 9x13 pan. Take melted butter and mix in sugar. Add a small amount of cinnamon if desired. Heat in microwave for 11/2 minutes. Pour butter mixture and Sprite over rolls. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until brown. NOTE: 1 cup sugar is ample when using canned peaches

RE: RECIPE: apple dumplings with sprite

My hair dresser was telling me about an apple dumpling and Sprite recipe. Wasn't hard to find :)) Can someone tell me what the Sprite does to/for this recipe?

Posted by Cindy_5ny (My Page) on Sun, Aug 31, 03 at 17:26

Farm Journal Cookbook (1972 Edition)

Pastry for 2 crust pie
4 cups grated apples
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups hot water

. Roll pastry into 14x12 rectangle. *Combine apples and cinnamon, spread over
pastry evenly; then roll up as for jelly roll (from 12" side). Slice into
(8) 1 1/2" pieces, sealing edges with toothpicks (I didn't need to use any
toothpicks), and place in 11x7x1 pan, sealed side down. Bake 400 for 15
minutes. *Combine remaining indredients in 2 qt saucepan and bring to a
full boil. Pour over apple pinwheels. Return to oven and bake 15 to 20
minutes more, basting twice, until apples are tender. Makes 8 servings.

Note: I adjusted the recipe by using one cup water and one cup cream for the caramel sauce.

RE: RECIPE: apple dumplings with sprite

The sprite just adds to the flavor, blends well with the butter, sugar, etc.

You can use ginger ale as well.

Peaches vs apples, both are great.

I just eye it with the butter, and sugars, though.
