Apple Dumplings

Or So She Say's
Apple Dumplings

I enjoy a recipe with a surprise ingredient.  Usually the kids guess what all is in the recipe.
This time they knew because it was a real treat when I told Brennan to get a small bottle at the checkout line the other day. 

We never, ever get Mountain Dew.  So this alone was a reason to love this recipe.
It was really delicious and is one we'll definitely make again and again.

I found this recipe on Pinterest - what a great source for recipes, as well as other great ideas.
Are you on Pinterest?  If so - please look me up at the link.

This recipes come from the "Or So She Says" blog and has lots of pins.

You start by peeling and slicing a large apple and then wrapping a crescent roll around each one.
Place in a baking dish.

In a bowl, melt butter and stir in sugar and vanilla.
Pour over the top of the crescent rolls and pour the Mt. Dew all around.
According to the original recipe, if it looks like a big mess, you know you're on the right track.
Mine did!

Then bake for 25-30 minutes at 350*.

It would be delicious with vanilla bean ice cream, but I felt like it was going to be sweet enough on its own.  Everyone LOVED this recipe.

I've modified the recipe to cut back on the sugar and calories.
I also used reduced fat crescent rolls as well and you wouldn't know the difference.
You can also use Diet Mt. Dew, but David's not a big fan of artificial sweeteners so there I went with the real deal.
