hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

First, a disclaimer:  I do not bake. At least, not well.  For some reason, baking and I don’t usually mix since I’m usually a “throw-in-a-dash-of-that”, or a “that-looks-like-about-a-1/2 cup” type of person. Anywho, you need not be an expert baker to attempt this recipe. I’m living proof of that. 🙂 Now, on to the yummyness that is these apple dumplings. These are soooo simple to make and use only a few ingredients, but the best part is that they taste amazing! Gooey and sweet and perfect for Fall. I originally found the recipe here, and am forever grateful!
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 oz of sprite (or mountain dew)
  • Cinnamon to taste
Step 1: Peel and slice your apples into wedges.
Step 2:  Roll an apple wedge up in one crescent roll triangle.
Step 3: Place crescent-wrapped apples in a sprayed baking pan.
Step 4: Melt both sticks of butter and mix with sugar and vanilla.
The consistancy should be sludge-like. (Mmmm…sounds good, doesn’t it?)
Step 5: Pour butter mixture over the tops of the wedges, or spread on top with a spoon.
Step 6.  Pour the can of soda all around the wedges and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
If it looks gross and like something the dog threw up, you’re on the right track.
Step 7: Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until brown and crispy.
Step 8: Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Yum!
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with this recipe. It gets rave reviews every.single.time. Go ahead and give it a try! It might just convert you into a baker. 😉

  3. Kirk would worship me if I made these for him. Definitely will have to try it!

    Ok, I’ve made these now twice. Taste good, but something has got to be going wrong. Do you really use all the sugar/butter mixture or just enough to cover the tops (I’ve done both)? And do you really use the whole can of soda? Both times (they are in the oven right now) it stays soupy and watery on the bottom and the bottom doesn’t cook. Your picture looks amazing!
