Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings...Don't Knock It Til You Try It:)

Apple Dumplings...So Easy

One of my friends made apple dumplings for a party and they were delicious.  I have never made them before so I asked for her recipe.  I combined her recipe with a Mountain Dew recipe that got rave reviews.

2 apples, peeled and cut into eight pieces each
1 cup butter
1 Tbl vanilla, optional
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
12 oz. Mountain Dew(water can be used)
2 cans Homestyle Biscuits
lemon juice, fresh or bottled

Peel and slice the apples into eight pieces.  Add a little lemon juice so they don't turn brown:

Open the can of biscuits.  Roll one biscuit out and put one apple piece in:

Roll the dough over the apple and pinch together.  Do this to make all 16 dumplings.  Place them in a greased baking pan:

In a saucepan melt the butter and add the sugar, cinnamon and Mountain Dew and simmer until the sugar dissolves.  Pour over the apples:

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes until browned:

Serve warm.  Add ice cream if desired.

I hope you enjoy:)
