I read the recipe for Crescent Apple Dumplings and then I read it again wondering how 7-Up could work in this recipe.  Curiosity got the best of me along with the fact that a warm apple dumpling with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream sounded good so I gave it a whirl.  Surprisingly it turned out hubby and kids loved it and the empty pan was proof enough.  The making of these sweet treats was simple enough and actually a bit fun when the 7-up entered the pan…I will leave what happens a secret…you will have to try the recipe to see.  (stock photo from source of which I have no clue)
