Country Dumpling Remix

A couple weeks ago I posted some of my guilty pleasures. One of these was my Country Apple Dumplings. I can eat three or four of those guys in one sitting! Well I was inspired by my friend Pretend Chef to try to make these guilty pleasures a little more I did! I used my favorite seasonal drink, Diet Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, in place of the sugary citrus soda, berries in place of apples and I cut down the butter and sugar. I was worried about this becoming an epic fail but I was very pleased with the outcome! It was sweet but not to the point of sugar overload. The only thing I would change is to either use a homemade dough rather than the crescent dough and to still eat it with ice cream instead of the whipped cream I served it with. Enjoy!

Yummy Sugared Berries

I did not intentionally give the whipped cream mouse ears


  1. Just checking my blog list friends this morning, and clicked on your blog. funny, the mouse cute!
    I would love your yummy fruit dumplings, right about now, with my morning caffe latte!

  2. Yum! This looks awesome. Cute little ears too :-)

  3. I appreciate the shout out! I am going to repost this on my blog for all of my foodie friends and family to check out your blog. This version in my opinion looks so much more delicious and figure friendly.
