Saturday Night Sugar Fest

I wanted to share a recipe with everyone.....but it comes with a warning.  These are so deadly sweet and delicious.  Don't be scared by the ingredients, trust me, you will want to make these over and over and over again.  Thanks Pioneer Woman, you rock.

Apple Dumplings

2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans of crescent rolls
2 sticks of butter (unsalted)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 small can of Mountain Dew or Sprite (8 oz.)

* Peal and core apples.  Cut apples into 8 slices each.  Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll.  Place in a 9x13 buttered pan.  Melt butter in a small pan then add sugar and barely stir.  Add vanilla, stir and pour over apples.  Pour soda around the edges of the pan.  Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or Cool Whip.  Spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.  Enjoy.  Go into a sugar coma. 

 If you try these let me know what you think.  They were a huge hit last night at my house!
