This recipe is an old family recipe from my husband's family. They did a family cook book a few years back and it appears in the book about 5 times.

The secret is the gooey sauce. No one will guess your secret ingredient!

Ingredients

  • 2 large
    apples (i use fuji but any kind would probably work)
  • 2 can(s)
    crescent rolls
  • 1 1/2 c
    sugar
  • 1 1/2 stick
    butter
  • 1 tsp
    cinnamon
  • 12 oz
    mountain dew

How to Make Secret Apple Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel, core and slice the 2 apples into thin slices.
  2. Open the crescent rolls and separate into triangles.
  3. Wrap each triangle around several slices of apple and place in a 9x13" baking dish.
  4. Place sugar, cinnamon and butter into microwave-safe dish and cook until bubbly and combined. You may have to stir several times during the cooking process. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't boil over.
  5. Ladle sugar mixture over each apple pocket.
  6. Top entire thing with 12 ounces (1 can) of Mountain Dew. Be careful not to pour over the dumplings but rather try to pour around each one.
  7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
  8. Best served hot with ice cream but also good straight out of the oven, cold, or any other time!
