Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

I got this recipe in my email this afternoon and I KNEW I had to make it just as soon as I had the chance, it sounded so good! Well, the chance just so happen came up tonight when my sister invited me over for dinner (I think she is feeling sorry for me since the husband is still out of town). Anyway, here's the basics:
2 cans crescent rolls. I used Pillsbury 8 count cans in original flava. 8)
2 apples. I used green apples, I believe they were Granny Smith.
2 sticks butter. I don't skimp, the recipe says you can use margarine, but what's the point anyway?
2 cups sugar.
2 tsp. cinnamon.
1 can Mountain Dew.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Core and slice apples (I removed the skins as well).
Wrap each in a crescent triangle. I basically just tried my best to get every inch of the apple covered by the dough.
Line up in a 9x13 inch pan.
Melt butter, cinnamon, and sugar together. I just nuked the butter and then stirred in the sugar and cinnamon until it had a pretty smooth, pourable consistency.
Pour the Dew around the perimeter of the pan.
Bake 45 minutes.
Eat warm with a scoop, or 3, of vanilla ice cream.

I have had this when visiting my parents. A friend brought it by and it was hot and ready to eat. Better than cinnabon. I don't eat too many sweets but I took one taste and was hooked. Going to make it for my family tonight. Got to eat it hot or cold. Hot is better with ice cream. Yummy!

Yeah, that might work. The dumplings were crispy on top and soft on the bottom, but not soggy. The apples had turned into the consistency of something close to apple sauce, but they were definitely delicious! Omitting the ice cream would probably help cut down on the sweetness too... :innocent:

Oooo that looks really good. :drool: Maybe if it's too sweet you could cut down the sugar and keep the Dew?

I guess it's the hormones talking, but I'd eat the whole thing. It looks so good!

were they kind of soggy from the liquids?

maybe just a tad bit of MD on top of the apples before you fold them over them frying them up like a fried apple pie.

It was EXTREMELY sweet, maybe omitting the dew might be a good idea for next time, I don't know what you could use to replace the juice though, maybe just water? :ponder:

Oh my goodness! This looks easy and delish. This is going to favorites. I can't wait to try it. I wonder how this would be to omit the mountain dew and fry this babies up in a fry daddy? Yum! Thanks!
