Apple Dumplings

What in the world could you possibly make with ingredients like refrigerated crescent roll dough, apples and Mountain Dew? Apple Dumplings! I honestly thought twice about trying this recipe, but The Pioneer Woman has never steered me wrong and I needed a quick easy dessert for a crowd, so I threw caution to the wind and made Ree's Apple Dumpling recipe. They were, as The Pioneer Woman says, "beyond imaginable".

Apple Dumplings

2 granny smith apples
2 cans (8 oz.) crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 ½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon, to taste
1 can (12 oz.) mountain dew soda

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan.

Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauce from the pan over the top.

Oo-o, you have my attention! Something this easy looks too good to be true, but I'll take your word for it. I always say that I don't drink soda, and really, 1 or 2 a year is it. But, guess what the soda is when I want one? The Dew! :-}pokey

I have never tried a recipe from you that isn't delicious; although, I do have to substitute Splenda for sugar. This will be easy to substitute diet soda. Can't wait to try it.

Sorry I don't know Pioneer Woman so I can thank her also.
