I was checking out the recipes in the Kitchen Goddess [1] group, when I saw this one from TeamSugar member ashleyk4214 [2]. Her recipe is for a simple dessert, but unique dessert. Not any old apple dumplings, these ones are made with Mountain Dew! That's right, the golden pastries are cooked in a mixture of Mountain Dew, cinnamon, butter and sugar. If this sounds intriguing to you, get the recipe, just .

Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings [3]

I got this recipe in my email this afternoon and I KNEW I had to make it just as soon as I had the chance, it sounded so good! Well, the chance just so happen came up tonight when my sister invited me over for dinner (I think she is feeling sorry for me since the husband is still out of town). Anyway, here's the basics:
2 cans crescent rolls. I used Pillsbury 8 count cans in original flava. 8)
2 apples. I used green apples, I believe they were Granny Smith.
2 sticks butter. I don't skimp, the recipe says you can use margarine, but what's the point anyway?
2 cups sugar.
2 tsp. cinnamon.
1 can Mountain Dew.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Core and slice apples (I removed the skins as well).
Wrap each in a crescent triangle. I basically just tried my best to get every inch of the apple covered by the dough.
Line up in a 9x13 inch pan.
Melt butter, cinnamon, and sugar together. I just nuked the butter and then stirred in the sugar and cinnamon until it had a pretty smooth, pourable consistency.
Pour the Dew around the perimeter of the pan.
Bake 45 minutes.
Eat warm with a scoop, or 3, of vanilla ice cream.
