If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert, then these Instant Pot Apple Dumplings are perfect! I make these in my Ninja Foodi pressure cooker.

The crescent rolls are filled with nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, apple cider, and of course apples. They’re sweetened just right so that they don’t taste too tart or tangy.

This is the kind of recipe you’ll want to make again and again because it’s so simple to put together!

This is my favorite season and I love how it makes me crave different foods than in the summertime. One of my favorite fall desserts is Apple Dumplings.

How to make The Best Apple Dumpling Recipe Ever

Turn your instant pot on sauté mode. While that heats up, lay out a flat surface to prepare your dumplings.

On a flat surface, lay out one of the perforated triangles from the crescent rolls.

Using one large apple slice, or two small apple slices, lay them on the long side of the crescent roll.

Roll until the end of the triangle is tucked away.
