Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings – with a berry twist

Apple desserts are a lot of fun and these crescent roll apple dumplings are just what you need this fall/winter season. The smell of baking apples with cinnamon, nutmeg fills the house with this gorgeous aroma that will make you crave everything cozy. These delicious mini treats are the perfect one bite dessert filled with apple, raspberry along with a generous drizzle of chocolate. Chocolate addition is optional but adds a nice flavor. Most days I just fill them with just apple and raspberry filling and enjoy them with my evening tea.

Recipe Notes for Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings

The addition of chocolate is optional. I just love chocolate and feel it goes so well; especially a good dark chocolate drizzle. You can also ad chunks of chocolate to the prepared filling before adding them to the rolls. My recommended method is to just drizzle the rolls with melted chocolate before serving

Best enjoyed hot; you can store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Keeps well for 3 days

If you do not enjoy the flavor profile of raspberry with apples then you can just make the apple stew and fill the crescent rolls with it.

  • Crescent Roll Makes 8 rolls
  • 50 gm Chocolate chopped or 1 Tbsp chocolate spread, optional
  • 5-6 Apple mini variety, usually have a tarty flavor
  • 85 gm Raspberries
  • tbsp Sugar or 2-3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Butter or brushing
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg


  • Preheat oven as per crescent rolls packaged instruction. Mine was at 375℉
  • Wash, clean and cut 6 mini apples into small chunks. I keep the skin on because I don’t mind it and it reduces food waste but it is totally your preference. Roughly chop the raspberries as well
  • Heat a pan on medium heat; add sugar and apples and let them caramelize for about 3mins, you will see them get softened a bit. Add raspberries to the mix and let it release its juices and let the flavors infuse. cook for about 5 more minutes and keep mixing it so that it doesn’t really stick to the pan.
  • Once done; add chocolate spread if using and let it melt within the nice jam like apple berry mix
  • Open and roll the crescent roll dough and cut along the ridges as marked on the dough. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on the rolled dough.

  • Taking one triangle at a time, stretch on the flat surface and roll from the triangle end to form a thin long strip

  • Roll the strip from one end to the other gently to form a circle. Once done; using your thumbs press into the center and stretch the roll a bit to create space for apple berry filling. Pressure the side using the thumb to create the indent

  • Fill in the jam filling, I overfill them a bit and then smooth the sides so that it doesn’t fall off. Apply a bit of butter to the dough if needed before putting them into the oven. I recommend leaving them out for 10 mins before baking them so that the dough is rested a bit but it works just as good even if you don’t.

  • Bake as per packet instructions, I recommend 15 mins and then letting them cool before eating as the berry filling will be piping hot after you take them out of the oven. Voila, they are ready to Enjoy!
