Who would have thought Sprite or Mt. Dew could put a whole new spin on apple dumplings. When my mother-in-law, Judy, makes this quick dessert it does not last long. Have the vanilla ice cream on hand!
2 (10 oz) cans of refrigerated crescent roll dough
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 16 pieces
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 (12 oz) Sprite or 7-Up. Mt. Dew can also be used.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 baking dish.
Cut each apple into 8 wedges. Separate crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in baking dish.
Melt butter in a saucepan and stir in sugar and cinnamon. Pour over apple dumplings. Pour soft drink over dumplings.
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
