I got the recipe for these apple dumplings from The Pioneer Women. (If you've never been to her site, you really must stop in.) After hearing a few of my blogging friends rave about them, I thought I would try them out. They were right. These dumplings are so easy to make and they are sinfully delicious! I can guarantee that your family will thank you for making these.
2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 small can Mountain Dew
Peel and core apples. Cut apples 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 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 sauces from the pan over the top.
These are fabulous! My family rates them an 11!
