    These are unbelievably good.

    Mt. Dew Apple Dumplings

    2 granny smith apples
    2 cans 8 ct. crescent rolls
    1 cup butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    cinnamon to taste

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Peel and slice apples into 8 wedges each. Unroll crescent rolls and roll up an apple in each one. Place in 9 x 13 pan. In a sauce pan mix butter, sugars, vanilla and cinnamon. Don't boil, but just let the butter and sugars melt. ( you don't want the sugars to crystallize) Pour mixture over the apples and then pour a can of Mt. Dew over all. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes and then uncover and bake another 10 to 12 mins.

    Well I don't follow pioneer woman, but maybe I should. Is it a magazine? My stepmother gave me this recipe over Thanksgiving and I just made it yesterday. My daughter came by today and tried it and said it was dangerous. LOL

    You can also use 7-Up or Sierra Mist instead of Mountain Dew and I've used the diet cans of the sodas too. Also, it's an easy recipe to halve for just the two of us. I use an 8x8 or 9x9 pan but still use the two apples, cutting each one into four pieces to make the 8 dumplings.

    this recipe is popular at our church meals too. BTW you can substitute pineapple chunks as well as canned peaches. anything with this much sugar & butter/margrine HAS to be good!!! my recipe calls for 1-1/2 sticks margarine and all white sugar.

    I made these and they were GREAT. The only thing I might do next time is cut down on some of the sugar as my family are all diebetics. This is a very RICH dessert!!!

    I tried them I think next time I'm cutting back on the sugar. They were good just to sweet for me.

    I looked up the Pioneer Woman link. Preparation 10 minutes, and cook time 15 minutes sounds really good to me. I bake so many cookies, etc.at Christmas, and these will be so easy. Can't wait to try them. Thank you.

    I have made these for a very long time and they are just as good cold......if you have any leftover. Which at my house is very rare. These are on my list of favorites that I posted on here. :)

    I love pioneer woman, and tried this recipe. I found it a bit too wet for me, next time I would use a bit less soda. And I used Seirra Mist in mine.
