Apple Dumplings

My Dad's birthday dinner was a success & I think he felt very special!!!! I am looking forward to sharing the incredible main course with you on Friday. 

For dessert, I made these apple dumplings along with some key lime pie. I'll take these delicious dumplings over apple pie any time! I made a variation of these a long time ago but without the intriguing addition of soda so when I saw this version from a fellow blogger I knew I had to make it. I'm not a soda drinker but couldn't wait to see the effects of adding it. The soda thickens & adds a sweet gooeyness you gotta love.

I will be making these often, especially since they are incredibly easy.

You gotta try 'em!!!!

APPLE DUMPLINGS

{ Printable Recipe Here }

2 pkgs Crescent Rolls
2 large Granny Smith apples
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tblsp cinnamon
1 12oz can Mountain Dew or Sprite

Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Peel & slice each apples into 8 slices. Roll each apple slice in one section of crescent roll. Place rolled slices into greased dish.

Melt butter. Add cinnamon & sugar & lightly mix. Pour mixture over apples. Pour can of Mountain Dew over all.


Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.


{ Food for Thought }

You can probably get away with 1 cup of sugar but use your judgement. The mixture is also very thick so you actually don't pour it as much as you place some over each apple.

The 2nd time I made these I decided to put them under the broiler for just 1 minute to get browner. It also made a nice crunchy texture on top. Hubs didn't like it that way but I did. Up to you!

These are so unique with the soda! They look scrumptious! I'd rather have these over pie too.

What I would give for a bowl full of this goodness!

Yum! Sounds awesome. I'm planning two dinners right now. One for my step-daughter's 11th birthday dinner (she happens to love steak, and my beef tenderloin is her favorite dish of mine... good taste). And the other is for Valentine's Day. I'm dieting until then!

Too bad I can't figure out that zucchini casserole recipe. Oh my goodness it was amazing. Oh well, perhaps I'll come across it again someday.

I love this recipe! My sister's MIL made these when I was in town to help my sister after her daughter was born. My sister and her husband don't care for baked fruit, so I think I ate most of the dessert during our visit. I got the recipe awhile back, but haven't made it yet because I would have to eat most of it at my house too. That wouldn't be such a bad thing for my taste buds, but definitely for my waist!

Velva said...

Oh my! Apple dumplings...You have definitely found my weakness, I love them! Yours looks divine.

Yaya said...
