Apple Dumpling Bake

I was a little skeptical about this dessert, I mean... really? Mountain Dew? It turned out delicious. It was flaky and cinnamon-y (is that a word?) and it was perfect over vanilla ice cream.


2 tubes (8 oz each) refridgerated crescent rolls
2 medium granny smith apples
1 1/2 cup sugar, divided use
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup mountain Dew soda
ground cinnamon
ground nutmeg
Vanilla ice cream

1. peel apples and cut into 8 wedges each apple. Place in bowl and mix with 1/2 cup sugar, shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Unroll rescent rolls and seperate the dough into 16 triangles. Wrap a crescent dough triangle around two apple slices. Place in greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.

2. In a bowl, combine remaining sugar and melted butter; sprinkle over rolls. Slowly pour soda around the rolls (do not stir) Sprinkle cinnamon over the whole pan.

Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm over icecream.

  1. This looks amazingly good. Hmmm, I'll have to try it and file it next to that Cap'n Crunch French Toast recipe...

  2. Sounds yummy. I wonder what function the soda serves???
