Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen is sharing another great recipe, “EASY Apple Dumpling”.  I will say that I can NOT wait to try this one and see if anyone can say what the “secret” ingredient is!!

EASY Apple Dumpling

I’ll never forget the first time I tried these Apple Dumplings at my Mother-in-Law’s house. She walked out of the kitchen wearing oven mitts holding the pan in her hands. She had a huge grin on her face and said I would never believe it- “Mountain Dew” was the *secret ingredient! “WHAT?!, who would ever think to put Mountain Dew in Apple Dumplings?!” I thought. Truly, I did not think they were going to be very good. But, I love my Mother-in-Law, so with a smile, my fork held high, and the silly comment “To my very FIRST caffeinated apple dumpling!” I dug in. “Mmmmm….WOW, are you serious!? Mountain Dew is in these?! These are delicious Kathy! Wohoo!” I said to her. I not only said it..I meant it…WOWSA! Alas, I have put aside my typical apple dumpling recipe (the kind that takes more time that I would like to admit) and showcase the most delicious EASY Apple Dumpling recipe you would ever stink you teeth into…enjoy ladies!

Peel, core and slice 3 Granny Smith apples (that is all you will need, honest).

Place one slice of apple onto one triangle of crescent roll. Start at the wide bottom side and roll up a bit, tuck in sides , then continue rolling.

Place in a buttered 9×13 pan

In a medium sauce pan add 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Heat on medium high heat until boiling.

Pour sauce over apple dumpling then add Mountain Dew to the sides.

Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Bake uncovered in a 350 oven for appx 35 mins.

Here they are fresh and piping hot out of the oven. Serve with vanilla ice cream. This recipe makes a GREAT conversation piece…ask everyone to guess the *secret ingredient…they never will, hehe.
