This recipe came from The Pioneer Woman Cooks and is one of her top 5 recipes. I tweaked it a little to make a larger batch. It’s a good thing I did. I had nothing to scrape out of the dish when I loaded it in the dishwasher! My boys got a kick out of me buying the Mountain Dew, since I usually tell them how bad the stuff is for them!
3 pkgs. Pillsbury or other crescent rolls
2 cups white sugar
2 ½ sticks butter
3 apples (I used Braeburn)
1 ¾ cups Mountain Dew
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Peel apples and slice each one into 8 slices. Roll one slice in each of the crescent rolls and arrange in pan. (I used my lasagna pan which is about 9 X 12) Over medium low heat, melt butter. Add sugar and stir but allow it to remain grainy. Stir in vanilla. Pour over the rolls. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Then pour the Mountain Dew around the edges and down the middle of the pan. (My kids loved that part.) Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Really great served warm with ice cream! Serves 12 normal people; serves 6 if some of them are teenage boys!
