Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

When my friend Jenny–who you may remember from this amazing fish recipe–first shared this funny little recipe with me a few years ago, I literally laughed out loud.  It just sounded so crazy!  I mean, seriously…..Mountain Dew?  In a baked dish?  I thought she was joking.

Until, of course, I tasted it.

That’s when I begged her for the recipe.  Luckily for me and for all of you, she was happy to share.

Of course I do feel the need to start with a word of caution for those of you, who despite the name “Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings,” were expecting some sort of whole-food-clean-eating-organic-gluten-free-or-otherwise-healthy dessert.   It is not healthy in any way.  It is full of preservatives and white sugar and probably even some high-fructose-corn-syrup.  If this bothers you, just click away now!  For the rest of you, keep reading.  This is one quick & easy recipe you will want to whip up again and again!

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel and core apples, then slice into 8 wedges each, or use an apple peeler-corer-slicer to do it.

Step 3: Wrap 1 apple wedge in crescent roll, then pinch seams together to cover apple completely.  Place in dish; repeat with remaining apple wedges.

      I don’t normally cook gluten-free so I honestly don’t know. Do they make gluten free crescent rolls?

    Yes I have made them and they are delicious. They are a Pioneer Women’s recipe from her cookbook.

      Yes, I think there are lots of different variations of this basic concept! 🙂

    If you want to get rid of the HFCS, use Mountain Dew Throwback. It’s made with real sugar. Still unhealthy and stuff, but at least no HFCS. My hubs prefers this kind to the original.

    Looks delicious!!! Apple desserts are my favorite!
    One questions from your picture, is it a half a cup or a half a stick of butter? The recipe says half a cup but the picture has half a stick (which is a quarter of a cup).
    Thanks for the clarification

    Mt.Dew contains brominated vegetable oil. Never put this stuff into your body. It’s dangerous

    Thank you so much for this post, I made them for my hubby for his birthday and he thinks I am amazing! He has no idea how easy these are or of the secret ingredient. Thanks again, we both decided this recipe is a keeper!

    Can you use 7 up instead of Mountain Dew?
