Apple Dumplings

Sunday, September 14, 2008

We couldn’t resist making these because it feels like autumn outside! It was actually too chilly today to keep the windows open! Not that I am complaining, I would take a warm fire and apple dumplings any day over lemonade and sun, but it’s only the 2nd week of September! Andrew picked this recipe out and for a fast and easy recipe these were delicious!
2 granny smith apples
2 sticks of margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Sprinkling of cinnamon
2 cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls
1 small can (8 ounce) of mountain dew
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking pan (yes it has to by 9x13 or bigger) and set aside. Peel and core the 2 granny smith apples and cut each of them into 8 slices. Unroll the crescent roll dough and roll up an apple slice in each of the crescent rolls. Lay the crescent rolls side by side in the buttered pan. Melt 2 sticks margarine in a saucepan and take off heat, mix in the in 1 1/2 cups sugar and vanilla but don’t mix it in too much, you want it to be gritty. Pour the mixture on top of the dumplings making sure to thoroughly coat them. Now open up your small can of mountain dew and pour it all around the edge of the pan. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, watching to make sure they don’t get too brown. (You’ll definitely want them golden brown and crispy on top, though.) Top with a scoop of ice cream if you want, but I think they were just as good without!
