*ingredients :

°1 large apple {I used Fuji - any apple will do, pie works best}
°1 box of Pillsbury Croissant Dough
°1/2 cup of butter
°2/3 cup of sugar
°1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
°1/2 teaspoon vanilla
°3/4 cup or 6 ounces 7-Up or equivalent {half box}


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8" x 8" baking pan.
Cutting each apple into 8-10 wedges.
Also cut the apple peel and keep it apart.

Separate croissant dough into triangles.
Roll each apple slice into the crescent moon dough, starting at larger end.
Pinch the apple closed, cover it, and place it in the baking dish. {It's easiest if you dry apple wedge first and then roll the dough around it.}

Melting butter in a small saucepan and add the sugar & cinnamon. Heat while whisking until homogeneous.
The mixture will slowly blend and thicken. When it becomes thick, remove from heat and add vanilla.

Pour cinnamon mixture over the apple balls. Pour soda on dumplings. Bake in  preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown!!!

Enjoy !
