Apple Dumplings

Todays offering is not really a cake, so I digress from the format but this is so good, you will eat it until you make yourself sick! This recipe came from the The Pioneer Woman Cooks!  I used less Mountain Dew than called for in the original, otherwise I followed the directions exactly.    The photo shown is a double batch.  These are not difficult and I baked them just before DH left for work so they should still be warm upon arrival.


2 whole Granny Smith Apples (I used Honey Crisps)
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter (I used unsalted)
1-½ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Cinnamon, To Taste
1 can (12 Oz.) Mountain Dew Soda ( I used the little 8 oz. can)

Preparation Instructions:

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.

WARNING: Prepare this dish at your own risk. It is beyond good.

Pies and Butter cookies are my favs. I don't like Margarines. But but NY Cheese cake is best of American sweet.
