Oh Yessssssss......

I found this luscious little recipe on one of my favorite blogs The Pioneer Woman. I decided to make it last night for my bible study group. They were so good, Bo Hunkmeister said, "These ought to be called Crack-Overs." Do yourself (and your family, and your neighbors, and your friends) a favor, whip up a batch tonight. It's really easy and they taste

Apple Dumplings (from Pioneer Woman)
serves 8 or me and Bo alone if we have a decent cup of coffee

2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 small can (8 oz.) Mountain Dew

Peel and core apples. Cut apples into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.

p.s. I copied the photo from Pioneer Woman because you just have to see how lovely these apple bundles of love dumplings are. If I've committed some kind of faux pas, someone please let me know.

Oh my, those look absolutely heavenly! I recently found that particular site and have been browsing through it myself. Hadn't found those yet! I think apples should be on my next grocery list. :-)
