To make these puppies, you just wrap crescent roll dough around slices of apple, pour a mixture of melted butter and sugar over them, empty out some Mountain Dew from the can on top of that, sprinkle with cinnamon, and bake. And ta-da! You’ve got yourself a crowd-pleasing dessert.
With such little effort for a praise-worthy dessert, this recipe has definitely got me rethinking all my complicated dessert recipes. What’s the point in laboring in the kitchen for hours if something semi-homemade does the job?
I’ll definitely be making these again. Perhaps a cream cheese and berry filling would be pretty good too. Or maybe peaches …
If you are making these ahead of time, after baking, pour out as much of the sauce that’s in the pan (there will be quite a bit) and save it in a separate container. This will keep the dumplings from getting soggy. When you’re ready to serve, warm the dumplings in the oven for a few minutes and warm the sauce in the microwave. Serve it all with scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
It is so easy, it’s illegal. ONLY 7 ingredients. ONLY 2 apples! If you want a lovely pictorial lesson in preparing these evil treats, then leave right now and go to her website. The woman is not only a wonderful cook, but an excellent photographer! Serves : 8 (8SP)
