Strawberry Dumplings

I make these Strawberry Dumplings at least 8 times a year because they are so good and easy! Can taste it now!

Strawberry Dumplings

Servings: 8


  • 1 can of crescent rolls (8 count)
  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Additional sugar for sprinkling


1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly greasing a baking sheet.

2. On a clean surface, unroll the crescent dough and separate the triangles.

3. In a bowl, gently toss your fresh strawberry halves with the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg until they’re lightly coated.

4. Place a small heap of the strawberry mixture at the wider end of each dough triangle.

5. Carefully roll up the dough starting at the strawberry-filled end, tucking in the sides as you go to keep the filling snug as a bug in a rug.

6. Arrange the dumplings on the greased baking sheet and brush each one with melted butter. Sprinkle a bit of sugar over the tops for that crispy, golden finish.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the dumplings are puffed up and golden brown, and those berries are bubbling with joy.

8. Allow to cool slightly before serving because as my grandma always said, “Patience is the secret ingredient.”

Variations & Tips:

– Feel free to swap out strawberries for other berries or a mix, depending on what’s in season or abundant in your garden.

– A little zest of lemon or orange will brighten the flavors and add a pleasant zing.

– If you have a bit more time, make a simple glaze with powdered sugar and milk to drizzle atop the warm dumplings.

– Remember, buying and freezing seasonal fresh strawberries can let you savor this treat year-round.

– For those busy days or unexpected guests, keep a can of crescent rolls and a bag of frozen berries on hand, and you’ll be ready to whip up this heartwarming dish in no time.

Every bite of these Strawberry Dumplings is a sweet reminder of the simple joys that cooking and sharing food can bring. They may just become a new tradition in your home, connecting the golden threads of past and present around your table.
