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

  • glenda_al

    Know ginger ale works.

  • ginger_st_thomas

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

    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

    Where i live everyone uses mountain dew- i still haven't tried them but wonder if the taste would be much different

    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?

    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 11x7x1½ 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.

    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.

    I've passed Glenda's recipe on to 5 of my family & friends & after they made this, they also had to pass this on!!

    DEEEEElicious & very easy to make!!
