Apple Dumpling Love

Do you love apple dumplings but not the time it takes to make them?  Here is a really wonderful and simple recipe for apple dumplings using crescent rolls.  I've seen this recipe quite a few times in a few different ways but the recipe with Mountain Dew always intrigued me.  These are really easy and very delicious.  Pair them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you've got an easy and comforting warm dessert for those chilly days ahead.  I'm using my oven and thinking of apples -- so-- fall (my favorite season) is undeniably around the corner.  

  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 oz. Mountain Dew

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Lightly Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish

Cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour Mountain Dew over the dumplings.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
