Have you gotten an Instant Pot yet? They’re the newest craze in cooking that everyone is talking about. I have personally had an Instant Pot for about a year and a half, but I’ll be honest. For most of those 18 months, the pressure cooker was sitting in my garage, only being pulled out every now and then to cook rice or hardboiled eggs, both of which it does beautifully.
Why did I not touch it much? The Instant Pot intimidated me. For this busy mom, I didn’t have time to learn all of those buttons. High pressure, low pressure, saute, poultry….if I even wanted to try making dinner in the Instant Pot, I just didn’t know how to go about doing it. It was like learning to cook all over again and I didn’t really have the time to learn a new method.
When I opened this Instant Pot® cookbook, I found approachable recipes that the whole family could enjoy for every meal:
Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal, Corn Pudding, Mexican Style Brown Rice, Sunday Pot Roast, Mac ‘n Cheese…and to finish off? Desserts. I had heard you could make desserts in the Instant Pot but had never tried it. When I saw these Instant Pot Apple Dumplings, I knew this had to be the first recipe I made!
You may have already known how you can make apple dumplings with crescent rolls, but we’re changing the game today and showing how you can make these easy apple dumplings even faster…in the Instant Pot.
Let’s do this.
Open the pot and you’re ready to serve the apple dumplings, with a scoop of ice cream, of course! This dessert was so simple and tasted amazing. We may have made it three times in three days. But don’t tell anyone, K? What I love about this recipe is that it makes a small batch and is ready in 30 minutes. Dangerously easy, right? 🙂
I followed this recipe exactly but got a burn error. I tried it again with double the Apple cider and still got a burn error. Scraped the bottom of the pot really good and added another 3/4 cup of cider and got another burn error. Was excited to make this but it didn’t work out 🙁
Just got my Instant Pot a week ago. BF complained that I spent MORE money on ANOTHER appliance that does the same thing as the appliances I already have. I made this tonight (also used it to make make spaghetti and meatballs for supper) and he told me I can buy another Instant Pot if I want to. 🙂
The ingredients for this recipe specifically say to use apple cider juice, not syrup. Dammit. I ruined these because I got exactly that, I didn’t read the whole entire story. The ingredients to this recipe should have included that, because mistakes like this will happen. I’m just sad I was craving these so bad lol ugh got to go buy the syrup tomorrow and hopefully it’ll come out perfect.
I made these exactly how the recipe said and they were wonderful. So easy and quick. I started them just as were were sitting down for dinner and the smell was so good we couldn’t wait to eat them. I served them with vanilla ice cream. I can’t wait to make these again!
Can you make it with apple juice, not apple cider?
Hi Julie saw this recipe in your site. Can l use crockpot to make apple dumplings
can this be made in the crock pot?
Super easy to make and quick. I didn’t have the Granny Smith apple, but do believe it would be the best apple to use. Still tasty though. My husband really enjoyed them.
Could you use store bought pie crust or would that not work!
Can you triple the recipe and place them on top of each other?
Absolutely delicious, and hubby LOVED it! Will definitely be making again, but for company!
This is the second time making this recipe and it gets rave reviews from my wife. I made it exactly as it is written and it was flawless. Now I am doubling up the apples in each crescent roll, just because I can and a little more brown sugar.
Is it possible to double this recipe. Or will they all stick together?
I have done this recipe twice. The second time was better than the first. When it was done with pressure I turned the pot off and let it NPR. They were done and the apples where real mushy. I have a 6 quart. Love these for fall.
Would love to try these apple dumplings !
