Apple Dumplins

My family had these wonderful little miracles a year ago at a party celebrating three wonderful kids lives. They were amazing and we happened to pick up the recipe. I didn't try them but always had them rolling around in my head. One day, I noticed them on The Pioneer Woman's website. This past week, Mike and I were able to spend some downtime with friends at a cozy cabin at Bear Lake. I made these as the dessert for one of our dinners and it was a hit. I hope you will try them out. They are easy and delicious. Your family will love them-I promise.

Just roll up an apple slice in the crescent roll large end to small end. Place seam side down pretty close together in a 9x13 inch pan. Pour the melted butter/sugar/vanilla mixture over the top and then drizzle the Mountain Dew around the edges and down the middle of the dumplings. Don't pour it over the top of them. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake. They are just that easy:)

These really are unbelievably delish and so easy to make. You can whip them up for any party and serve with a side of ice cream. Be sure to spoon the sauce over the top of the ice cream for extra yumminess. Try out this little gem of a recipe. I think you will LOVE it!!!!!!!
