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
-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. .
