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.

Happy Bloggiversary!
That sounds delicious. Pioneer Woman Cooks had a similar recipe a while back, but I've been waiting til fall to make it (apple season), so I'm glad you posted your recipe, it was a great reminder.

That cobbler is one I definitely will try.

I enjoy your blog so much. I don't know how you manage to do it all. Congratulations!

Congrats on three years of blogging!! I would have never thought of mixing apples and mountain dew. I haven't made a cobbler in years...I'll have to give yours a go. :-)

I made a similar recipe to this in March, however it was from Rachel Ray. It was pretty good right out of the oven with ice cream. I agree, I don't know that you need all of the amounts of the ingredients included.

Sub Root Beer for Mountain Dew. It's 100x better.
