A friend of mine shared this recipe with me. Apparently I am out of the loop, because this recipe has been around a while (which I found after checking the internet for information about it after we devoured it for dessert).
I have to say, I was skeptical. Mountain Dew? On top of pastries? But, because the recipe looked so easy, I thought I'd give it a try. And wow - really, really good! And the recipe was really easy. I initially thought it would be too much sugar, especially with the Mountain Dew, but, although it was sweet, I didn't think it was overly sweet. Just right actually.
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
- 2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent rolls
- 4 Granny Smith apples
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1 can of Mountain Dew soda pop
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Quarter and peel apples.
Wrap each quarter in a crescent roll. This doesn't have to be perfect.
Place in 9" x 12" baking dish (because I only made a half-recipe, I used an 8" x 8" glass baking dish).
Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over rolls.
Drizzle melted butter over all, and then pour can of Mountain Dew over all.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. You'll enjoy this. I'm totally confident of that.
