Go Straight to Confession after Eating This!

A crime was committed in my kitchen! I made Apple Dumplings. This recipe was found at The Pioneer Woman.

A crime? Yes! After you read how these are made you will agree!

These are perfect for a dessert at a dinner party. They are so easy to make. If you are not a pie maker - try these!


The suspects: Granny Smith apples, Butter, Sugar, Vanilla, Cinnamon, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, and a bottle of Mountain Dew.


Cut up 2 granny smith apples into 8 slices each. Ignore the bruising - it's fine.


Roll each apple slice in a single serving of cresent roll.


Melt butter and add sugar and vanilla..... no calories here!


Pour butter mixture over apples. Add mountain dew and sprinkle with cinnamon. These are ready for the oven!

The result: Super sweet and crispy apple dumplings!



2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
cinnamon
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.

The Mountain Dew is throwing me off . . . that's so weird! They look super yummy though!

I agree with the others - what the heck does the mountain dew do?

theweldguy said...

The mountain dew helps create the sauce at the end. Have you ever made cola chicken? You use pepsi or coke.. good stuff!

I know it sounds weird - but trust me.. it's so good!
