Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings

Here is the last recipe for my Saturday night dinner. I truly saved the best for last! This was unbelievable (in a good way). The homemade whipped cream was the perfect way to top this dessert off. Here is the link to the Pioneer Woman website. The cooking section is amazing. The best part about her website is that she includes beautiful photos of the food. It's like porn for cooks! Both Claire and I frequent this site daily for inspiration. Thanks again Claire (and PW) for bringing these into my life.

Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings
2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 small can 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.
