Christmas Apple Dumplings
My Honey (my grandmother) is by far the best cook in the entire world. My family as I have mentioned before has a cookbook of all the family favorite recipes that have been passed down for years. These apple dumplings were the first dessert I ever made with my Honey. I was SO proud of these dumplings that I made my entire family sit down while I served them each dessert regardless of how full they were. I crave this dessert... It is the gooey cinnamon sugar apple pie dish that you crave when the leaves start to fall. Apple desserts with ice cream have always been my weakness.. and this recipe tops them all. When you look at the ingredients and the steps to make it.. you think to yourself "really that's it? and the answer is YES that's it. You will impress anyone you serve this to and they will think you slaved away hours in the kitchen making this decadent dessert.. but little do they know =). I cannot rave about this enough.. so you will just have to try it for yourself and no this is not healthy but we need an indulgence every now and then.
2 Granny smith apples
1 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
2 8oz cans of crescent dinner rolls
12 oz can of mountain dew
Preheat your oven to 350.
Cut each apple into 8 slices
In a sauce pan heat butter, sugar and cinnamon.
In a greased baking dish roll each apple slice in a crescent roll and place seam down forming 2-3 rows of dumplings.
Pour the melted sugar, butter and cinnamon over all the apple dumplings and take a brush and coat each dumpling (my favorite part)
Take your mountain dew and pour in one corner of the pan (to not wash off the butter sugar mix): I tilt the dish once I have poured my soda to make sure it gets to the other end of the dish.
Bake for 45 minutes until is golden brown and bubbly goodness. Serve with vanilla ice cream..... DIE, so good.
