Apple Dumplings

Just a quickie tonight. I am ready to crash and burn.

The recipe today is from Paula Deen's website. Andthe recipe was from Jessica R. Cain. But there is a recipe in 'Scrappy ladies Recipes' cookbook.

Apple Dumplings

2 cans crescent rolls
2 granny smith apples
1 stick butter
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/3 cup splenda (or sugar)
1 (12 oz) diet Mountain Dew

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 wedges. Roll each wedge in a crescent roll. Place rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish. In small saucepan melt butter. Once melted add Splenda (or sugar) and cinnamon. Mix well. Spoon over crescent rolls. Pour diet Mountain Dew over rolls. Bake for 45 minutes.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Ease of Preparation: easy

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: Splenda is more difficult to mix in butter than sugar. Mixes better if butter is melted. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter, Splenda and cinnamon. Remove the dumplings to a wire rack after cooking as the liquid still in the baking dish will make the dumplings soggy. The Apple Dumplings taste like mini apple pies.

Have a great weekend.

See you at the shop.
