APPLE DUMPLINGS

John loves apple desserts and loves Mountain Dew. Together = HEAVEN! This is definitely not for those on a diet. You might gain 10 pounds just from looking at the recipe. Can you say butter sauce?

WHAT KIND OF APPLES TO USE?

Granny Smith apples are green and tart. Granny Smith apples are often used in baking to counter the sweetness in baked treats but really any apple will work in this recipe.

CRESCENT ROLL APPLE DUMPLINGS

Start by rolling up a slice of apple in crescent dough.

Pour a sauce made from melted butter, sugar, and vanilla.

Pour a can of Mountain Dew around the edge of the pan. Sprite can be used as well.

Bake until golden brown. The sauce is to die for!

CAN I CUT THIS RECIPE IN HALF?

Of course! I don’t always need a ton of dessert so feel free to half this recipe.
