Apple Dumplings

I found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman's Blog.  
I love her blog.  I love her recipes.  
They're so easy to follow and she posts tons of pictures along the way.  

These are the best apple dumplings I've had in ages.  
And they're so easy. 
HOWEVER, Pioneer Woman uses 2 sticks of butter!  

The first time I made them I followed her recipe all the way. 
But thought, too much butter, too fattening!

I decided to use much less...just 1/2 a stick of butter.  
The original recipe calls for 6 oz. of Mountain Dew.  
I used about 4 oz. 

Here's what you need:

2 cans of crescent rolls
2 apples
cinnamon and sugar mixture
1/2 stick butter
4 oz. Mountain Dew


Peel, core and slice the apples.  
Place about 2 to 3 apple slices at the top of one crescent roll, 
sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar...


Roll the crescent roll up...

Place crescent roll in a 9 X 13 pan sprayed with Pam...


Melt the butter in the microwave.  
Pour the butter on top and around the dumplings.  
Sprinkle the tops with more of the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  

Now, take your 4 oz. of Mountain Dew and pour around the dumplings.  


Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes until golden brown...  

Don't they look delicious...

YUMMY!


Feel free to add ice cream!

  5. I agree completely with you. I love PW's blog, but her apple dumplings had too much butter. I need to make them again, maybe for the night before Thanksgiving.
