Worth waiting for
--Mountain Dew Apple Cobbler
Mountain Dew Apple Cobbler
Very Scrumptious Cuisine Vandenberg Spouses Club Copyright 2007
2 cans crescent rolls
2 Granny Smith apples
1 stick real butter
1 ½ c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 (12-oz) can Mountain Dew
Cut apples into eighths. Separate crescent rolls into triangles and roll one wedge of apple starting at the fat end of the dough and rolling to the narrow end. (I think I rolled mine wrong but it doesn't really matter.) Place in a 13x9-inch lightly greased pan. Melt butter, sugar and cinnamon in microwave, just until butter is melted. Pour over apples. (My mixture wasn't really pourable - more like spreadable). Pour one can of Mountain Dew over all. DO NOT STIR! Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Really good with vanilla ice cream.
I'm not sure if I did this right. I rolled my apples wrong and poured the Mountain Dew around the dumplings instead of over the dumplings. I ended up with an uneven sugary crust on top but it didn't ruin it. I've been waiting forever to make this recipe and it was everything I had hoped for. It was so good. Dough - good. Apples - good. Sweet syrup - good. It is rather sweet but the tart apples helped balance everything out.
I've seen this recipe made with 2 sticks of butter but one was plenty. You can use any lemon-lime type soda and you can use peaches instead of apples.
Well, my maternity leave is over and I'm behind on the archives. I haven't added one recipe to the archives the entire time I was on leave. I'll catch up eventually.
Oh wow. Today is my 3 year bloggiversary! I can't believe it's been 3 years. Pop in and say hi, even if you're a lurker.
