Delicious and Easy Apple Dumplings Recipe
This is really an Easy Apple Dumplings Recipe and it is so delicious. A great treat for fall weather when the fresh apples are available. When our Friends of the Park organization had our Annual Fall Maintenance Day at Barrett's Place Playground, one of the volunteers arrived with a dish of hot Apple Dumplings. They were sure a wonderful treat on a chilly morning and were a big hit with all the volunteers especially my husband. He mentioned them several times after that morning so I finally emailed my friend for the recipe. She gladly shared the recipe with me and now with her permission, I am sharing it with you.
Thank you, Joan Kelly! I had never heard of cooking with Mountain Dew but it sure is good! Who knew?
So, if the Apples are available, think about trying this delicious recipe! It is especially good on a chilly fall or winter day. I think it would be good with peaches or really any fruit for anytime of the year. Use whatever fruit is in season or you might try frozen or canned.

Joan sure made a hit at our work day. It was a chilly fall morning and these looked, smelled, and tasted delicious. Try it with fresh peaches in the summertime. Just use 2 fresh peaches instead of the apples. Yummy. I haven't tried it but I am wondering if you could do the same thing with canned fruit or canned pie filling. I may have to experiment with that.

Make your Apple Dumplings to suit yourself
Changing the Recipe as I go
As you can tell from the picture, I used more than 8 crescent rolls and I also added more than one slice of apple per roll. I think the next time I make them, I will reduce the amount of sugar because they are very sweet.
I actually do not even core my apples. I just peel and slice thinner slices and then layer them. I am pretty good at figuring out the easiest, fastest way to get things done. It might not always work but it was fine with this recipe.

That Good Ole Mountain Dew
Mountain Dew - Is it good for you?
This is the first recipe that I have ever used Mountain Dew and it sure made these Apple Dumplings taste great!
I like that my friend Joan told us how to make it healthier with less calories, don't you?
I know that Mountain Dew is very sweet so we probably don't need as much sugar.
Yummy, I love these with a big cup of hot coffee!
Cook until Apples are done!
Cooking Your Apple Dumplings
Test the apples at the end of 30 minutes to see how done they are. You may need more or less cooking time than the 35 to 40 suggested minutes.These smell so wonderful when cooking so put on the coffee and enjoy! Can you "almost" smell them? This picture makes my mouth water.
We love the fall and fresh apples from the mountains so keep them on hand. From now on I will keep a Mountain Dew on hand, too, so I can make these whenever the mood strikes.
