Apple Dumplings

Yum, yum, yum. I love these. They are delicious, easy to make and are gone in seconds. I can't tell you awesome these are. I found the recipe in a Rachel Ray Magazine and since butter and sugar are my two most favorite ingredients -- especially combined -- I decided this was just the recipe for me. You won't regret the calories, well maybe, but I still recommend them. Go buy some granny smith apples now!

Apple Dumplings

Flour, for dusting
One 8-ounce can crescent rolls
1 granny smith apple -- peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges
1 stick (4 ounces) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup Mountain Dew
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a surface dusted with flour, unfold the rolls. Place an apple wedge on the wide edge of each piece of dough and roll up. Place the dumplings in an 8-inch square baking dish.

In a saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and cinnamon over medium heat, stir in the Mountain Dew. Pour the mixture on the dumplings. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes; remove the foil and bake 15 minutes longer.

These dumplings remind me of when I was little. My mom used to make these. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and I'm in heaven.
