Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

These apple dumplings are so tasty and practically melt in your mouth.
I found this recipe online quite a while ago
and I have tweaked it to my liking.
And yes, Mountain Dew is used in the recipe :)
2 large apples, peeled and cored
2 (10 oz) cans refrigerated crescent dough
3/4 - 1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup butter
1 cup Mountain Dew or citrus soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
and grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Cut each apple into 8 wedges.
Separate the crescent dough into triangles.
Roll each apple wedge in crescent dough starting at the smallest end
and then pinch to seal.
Place in prepared baking dish.

Melt butter in a saucepan 
and stir in sugar and cinnamon.
Cook until you have a nice, thick syrup.
Pour over apple dumplings.
Pour Mountain Dew over the dumplings.

Bake for 35 - 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve warm with ice cream or cream.
And 2 minutes later this is what your bowl will look like....
Trust me, this recipe is fantastic!
Enjoy :)
