A little slice of heaven.

So I have to give a shout out to Natalie for this recipe. Really simple to make and a definite crowd pleaser. So I thought I would share. :) I'm not one to cook most of the time. I'm actually pretty good at it, and I semi-like to cook. I just don't. But I may have to make a few execptions. This is one.

I was a little bored when I made these yesterday so I did a mini cooking show, complete with pictures.

Apple Dumplings

4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into quarters
2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls
2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 can of mountain dew, ginger ale, or sprite

Sprinkle cut apples with cinnamon, roll each apple quarter in a crescent roll, place side by side in a buttered 13"x9" pan.

Melt butter. Add vanilla and sugar into the butter mixture (Here's the secret: BARELY stir in the sugar, do not let the sugar dissolve!) Just stir until combined. Pour over apples. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of each dumpling. Then pour your choice of soda around the edges of the pan.

Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees, until a golden brown on top. Cool and Enjoy!

I don't see a scoop of vanilla ice cream with it...that totally completes this yummy treat!
