Country Apple Dumplings

Whoa. These are amazing. I try not to say that a lot, but I really think these are absolutely divine. This is like a gourmet pastry and a down-good home-baked apple pie all rolled into one. A tart apple slice, wrapped in a crispy and gooey shell, then encompassed with butter-y, sugar-y goodness, complete with one surprise ingredient. This is just fabulous. And amazingly simple.


1 large apple, peeled and cored
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 can (6 fluid ounces) Mountain Dew


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking dish.

Cut the apple into 8 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles and roll each apple wedge into crescent roll dough, starting with the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish. 

Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour Mountain Dew over the dumplings.

Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Prepare to put your lips together and say "Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!"
