Treat For Tuesday

Today I want to share a delicious dessert recipe with you. It is apple dumplins and you won't believe the secret ingredient that makes these soooo goood! I am thrilled that Hannah is taking an interest in helping out in the kitchen. She made this recipe almost all on her own the other night. I'm thinking that I may be raising a future Food Network star!

Apple Dumplins

2 cans Crescent rolls
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 8 pieces each
2 sticks butter (Paula Deen would love this recipe!)
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon-plus a little more (seriously the recipe says that)
12 ounce can Mountain Dew (secret ingredient)

Spray 9X13 pan. Separate crescent rolls, place 1 slice apple in each, roll up. Place in pan.
In sauce pan, melt butter, add sugar and cinnamon. Cook about 5 minutes. Pour over apples. Pour secret ingredient (I know it sounds strange, but TRUST ME on this one) over all and bake 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees. This is divine served with ice cream!

  1. YUMMY!! I'll have to try this!

  2. Jennifer's MIL made this recipe when Caitlin was born, and since Jennifer and David don't care for baked fruit, I think I ate almost all of it! I have wanted to make it for our family, but I'm the only one here who enjoys baked fruit too. So I don't think I can handle the temptation on my own! Tell Hannah I would love for her to make this sometime when I'm in Bowling Green!

  3. I just found out that I have 4 dinner guests coming this evening. This is the perfect dessert recipe for dinner. Thanks so much for sharing and meeting my need.
