So, Summer is coming to an end and we're coming up on one of my two favorite seasons, Fall. I love the trees changing colors, the weather getting cooler (halleluiah, Texas Summer is NOT FUN, I've come to learn). So, with all the excitement of Fall approaching, I had yet another itch to bake something. This time I've made super yummy, super quick, apple dumplings. You will not believe how easy these are to make... the secret ingredient.... ready for it? MOUNTAIN DEW! I know right, who would have thought...
So here is the recipe, make it, love it!
*Cinnamon not in picture...oops.
2 whole Granny Smith Apples
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter
1-1/2 cup 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, if you have a smaller/bigger pan that's fine too.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir.
Add vanilla, and stir.
Pour entire mixture over apples, make sure each little apple goodness, is covered in the mixture.
Pour the secret ingredient, Mountain Dew, around the edges of the pan and in the middle too.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
*I had a lot of extra sauce in the pan, after baking, so I used a turkey baster and sucked out the sauce and put it in a little bowl.
*You can service it with ice cream for extra yumminess however this is so good it stand on its own! Use extra sauce to pour over the dumpling and ice cream! YUM!
