1 robust apple

1 pack of Pillsbury Croissant Dough

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter

A hint (1/2 tsp) of vanilla essence

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 cup lemon-lime soda (such as 7-Up or Sprite)


Warm up your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking dish with some grease.

Slice the apple into about 8-10 even wedges.

Envelop each apple slice with the croissant dough, starting from the broader end, and lay them in the dish.

In a saucepan, gently melt the butter and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Keep whisking until you have a rich, thick concoction. Once off the heat, blend in the vanilla essence.

Drizzle this aromatic cinnamon blend over the prepped dumplings.

Pour over the zesty lemon-lime soda.

Let them bake to a beautiful golden hue for 40-45 minutes.
