It's been colder than normal here in northern Utah this past week and when
it gets cold I want to turn on the oven and bake something.
A friend of mine gave me this easy recipe for apple dumplings a couple of weeks
ago so I thought I'd give it a try.
When apples are baking it sure makes your house smell good.
2 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced into eighths
2 tubes crescent rolls
2 cubes butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
cinnamon, to taste
1 can Mt. Dew (I know, weird huh)
Roll each apple slice in crescent roll. Place in buttered 9 X 13 pan. Or
you could use cooking spray if you're on a diet. ;)
Melt butter, add sugar and barely stir. You want grainy, buttery, sugar.
Add vanilla. Pour mixture over crescent rolls. Sprinkle cinnamon over all.
I probably used about a tablespoonish. Now pour Mt. Dew all around the
edges of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Pour juices from the pan
over all. Delicious.
