Sugar dumpling, You're my baby...

This was a baking weekend, for sure! I had first made Nutella Cookies, at the request of the kids. That’s it…that starts the baking frenzy in me. I just had to make something else. I had never tried this recipe, a recipe only using apples, crescent rolls, and…WHAT?: a can of Mountain Dew. Oh, and Paula Deen’s favorite, butter. It looked so easy, sounded great, I just had to try it!
The result? Easy to make and tasty! They family raved about them and said this recipe is a keeper!

Apple Dumplings

2 medium Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
cinnamon (for sprinkling)
12 oz. (1 can) Mountain Dew or Sprite.

*Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Peel apples and cut into 8ths.
*Open a can of crescent roll dough and carefully separate the dough along the perforations. Place 1/8 of an apple on one segment of dough and then roll/wrap the apple in the dough. Place in the prepared pan and repeat with remaining apples and dough. Set aside.
*In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add sugar and vanilla. Stir to combine. Pour butter/sugar mixture over the apples, then pour the can of Mountain Dew (or Sprite, although I’ve never actually tried it), on top of everything. Sprinkle the pan with cinnamon and bake for 40 minutes.
*When the dumplings are done, remove from oven. Serve warm with sauce over dumplings.

Recipe from Our Best Bites. Thanks for deliciousness!

Ok, I have to admit that the Mnt. Dew is really kinda throwing me off. ;) (not in a bad way though) I've seen recipes using different sodas, but have yet to actually try them. But it looks like a really delicious recipe! :)

They look great, but the can of soda is the craziest ingredient ever! It must be nice and gooey though because of it. Thanks for sharing and linking up to Eat, Grow, Sew! I'll have to indulge my sweet tooth!
