While Daughter Stephanie and family were visiting last week, I made PW's Secret Recipe Apple Dumplings. Ree tells us how she got (stole) the recipe from her Mother! Simple, it uses Granny Smith apples, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, and…GULP: a can of Mountain Dew. These apple dumplings are SO indescribably delicious, I made the recipe again the next day! My Grandson has a "Mountain Dew Collection" so this was the perfect dessert to make. Since I am Nana, I made homemade ice cream too.
After all, I am in the Memory Making Business!
2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 small can Mountain Dew
Peel and core apples. Cut apples into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
