Apple Dumpling Bake with Mt. Dew Sauce

I have a surplus of apples after going apple picking this weekend and this is one of my favorite apple recipes! It was featured in the Akron Beacon Journal a few years ago during an article on what to do with fall apples.

-2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
-2 medium Jonagold apples, peeled
-1 cup sugar
-1/3 cup butter, softened
-3/4 cup Mountain Dew soda
-Ground cinnamon
-Vanilla ice cream

Jonagold apples were the type that I had on hand, the original recipe calls for Granny Smith -- any baking apple will do.

Peel and core the apples. Cut into 8 slices (per apple).

One slice per crescent roll. 

Roll up and place in a greased baking pan.
Make sure to seal the edges of the dumplings. 

Mix the melted butter with a cup of sugar.

Sprinkle over the dumplings.

The secret weapon! 

Pour the Mt. Dew around the dumplings. 

Do not stir! 

Sprinkle with cinnamon. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350.

Serve warm and a la mode. 

Delicious! The Mt. Dew becomes a syrup around the dumplings and the sugar becomes crunchy. This recipe is delicious and a perfect combination of fall flavors! The dumplings are equally good served a la mode or just by themselves.

Be ready for two more apple recipes this week -- at least one more from me and one from Becky. Here's a few pictures from our apple picking, I'll post more later in the week with the other recipes. .
