Easy Apple Dumplings and a Giveaway

This recipe was given to me by my friend Brenda D.  I met Brenda at a cooking competition at our County fair. Brenda entered these Easy Apple Dumplings in the dessert category in 2006.  She placed 3rd with these delicious Apple Dumplings.

I like that you do not have to make pie dough for the dumplings.  I need practice on pie dough.  I have not mastered that yet.  It looks so easy but I seem to fail whenever I try.  With the crescent rolls you just roll a quarter of a peeled apple in each crescent roll, that is super easy!  The Apple Dumplings have an ingredient you would never know was in them ........... Mountain Dew.

I have been busy making apple sauce, fried apples and these apple dumplings.  My in-laws have apple trees and we have lots of apples, so keep an eye out and you may just see another apple recipe in the future.
