warming up

from the inside out...

Country Apple Dumplings

2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
2 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar (I used part brown sugar last time I made these)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 small can Mountain Dew ™


Preheat the oven to 350
Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour Mountain Dew™ over the dumplings. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

We like them best straight from the oven (sometimes served with vanilla bean ice cream). What is your favorite recipe that "warms you up" this time of year?

I like to do soup one day every week in the winter time. It's cheap, it's easy and warms us right up.
