Nana's Apple Dumplings

Nana's Apple Dumplings
recipe from Tim's mom Sherry

1 large granny smith apple2 cans crescent rolls (8 rolls each)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1-1/2 Tbs sugar
1 (12 oz.) can Mountain Dew

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Core and cut apple into 16 slices (cut in half, then cut each half in half, cut out the core, then cut each quarter into 4 slices).

Place each apple slice in a crescent roll and roll up. Place in a 9x13 baking dish (2 rows of 8, nestled against each other).

Bring the butter, sugar, and cinnamon just to a boil. Remove from heat as soon as it starts to boil. Pour butter mixture over the rolls, then pour the entire can of Mountain Dew over the rolls.

Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, until the crescent rolls are golden brown and the sauce has thickened.

Serve warm, making sure to get some of the sauce with each serving.
I like to eat these with a scoop of ice cream!
Yield: 8 servings, 2 rolls each
