P-Dub's Apple Dumplings
Actually, these would be correctly title Pioneer Woman's Momma's Apple Dumplings, but who cares what you call them. Just make them! But make them when you have a few people to feed them to. They are by no means anywhere close to healthy (look at all that butter and sugar!) and are also so, so good that you'll be up sneaking bites in the middle of the night. Don't ask me how I know.
Apple Dumplings from The Pioneer Woman Cooks
2 whole Granny Smith Apples
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter
1-½ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Cinnamon, To Taste
1 can (12 Oz.) Mountain Dew Soda - Both PW and I only used about half a can. I accidentally bought diet and it was fine.
Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
