Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings: So Good So Good So Good!

Since I've been getting back into shape this month, the sweets have been few and far between. But then Sara called me FREAKING OUT because she HATES apple pie but had these "Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings" at a friend's house and LOVED THEM.
So, here is the recipe. You can always use apple pie filling in place of the apple if you hate coring and peeling apples (even though it's only 1 apple!).

Enjoy, bitches!

Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1 package Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 granny smith apple (or whatever you have on hand!)
1 stick butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 light brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or Chinese Five Spice)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup Mountain Dew
Grease 8x8 Dish.

Separate and stretch out Crescent Rolls.
Peel, core and cut apple into 8 pieces.  Place apple slices onto crescents, roll up and pinch to seal and place in dish. Melt butter and mix in sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Pour on top of crescents. Pour Mountain Dew in pan. Bake 35 - 40 minutes. Serve with a side of locally made vanilla bean ice cream!
