Words cannot accurately describe how delicious this dessert is. Not only does it make your house smell heavenly while it is baking, it tastes amazing -- and I don't use that word lightly when it comes to food. I urge you to serve this with vanilla ice cream and don't think about the calories, just enjoy it.
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
2 granny smith apples
2 tubes refrigerator crescent rolls
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 can of mountain dew soft drink
1. Peel, core and slice each apple into 8 slices. Unroll crescent rolls. Roll an apple slice in each crescent roll and place in a buttered 8x13 inch pan.
2. Melt butter, add sugar and barely stir - you want the butter and sugar to be grainy and lumpy. Add vanilla; barely stir. Pour butter mixture over crescents. Pour mountain dew around the sides of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350-f degrees for 40 minutes.
