Sometimes just surviving until the weekend deserves a celebration. You know those weeks when everything is a struggle.
Maybe it’s sick children, exhausting schedules, a teething toddler, a contrary tween, or demands at work- it all piles up day after day, until suddenly Friday is here and a breather is on the horizon.
Friday finally arrives and you want to celebrate it. But, the reality is, you are the Mom. Creating that celebration is on you… not to mention the clean up from that celebration.
I’ve had several weeks like that this month. I want to Fri-YAY but I just don’t have the energy or creativity left when Friday afternoon comes.
While shopping recently, I saw Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale and I knew it was the perfect solution for a simple Fri-YAY celebration. The Blackberry Ginger Ale would be the perfect way to create a super easy blackberry dumplings dessert with just 3 ingredients.
Can’t find blackberry flavored ginger ale? Don’t worry, regular ginger ale or any lemon-lime flavored soda works fine in this recipe instead.
I can do a Fri-YAY celebration when it requires 3 ingredients!
What makes this dessert so easy? Making these blackberry dumplings with crescent rolls! You really can’t make anything more delicious than these dumplings with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Easy Blackberry Dumplings Recipe
- Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale (or regular ginger ale, or lemon-lime soda)
- Crescent Rolls
- Blackberry Pie Filling
Place about 2 tablespoons of blackberry pie filling on the crescent roll, and roll it up. Don’t worry about blackberry goodness oozing from the sides of the crescent roll- it will just add to the syrupy goodness!
Place the blackberry pie filled crescent rolls in a pan. Two packages of crescent rolls will fill a 9×9 pan. (Use three packages to fill a 9×13 pan and feed a crowd.)
Pour 1 cup of Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale on top of the filled crescent rolls in the 9×9 pan. (Use 1.5 cups for a 9×13 pan.)
Expect the filled crescent rolls to be swimming in Ginger Ale. During cooking, the crescent rolls will plump up, and the Ginger Ale will mix with the oozing blackberry pie filling to create a delicious syrup.
Bake the Blackberry Dumplings at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serve Blackberry Dumplings warm, a la mode. Spoon extra blackberry pie filling on top of the ice cream for extra blackberry goodness.
Now, enjoy a simple Fri-YAY celebration. Add some pretty placemats and enjoy a celebration that looks and tastes like it took way more effort than it really did!That’s a ‘weeks-end’ celebration I can handle pulling together.
