- 2 granny smith apples
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 stick butter
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 pkg crescent rolls (8 rolls)
- 1/2 can sprite
- cinnamon & sugar for dusting
preheat oven to 350 F.
melt butter in a small saucepan. add sugar. stir until dissolved and well incorporated. turn off heat and stir in vanilla. set aside.
peel, core, and slice apples into 4 wedges each (8 total). roll one apple wedge in one crescent roll wedge and place in a lightly sprayed 8x8 or 9x9 inch baking dish. repeat with rest of apples and rolls.
pour melted butter/sugar over rolls. slowly pour sprite around rolls until about halfway up sides of rolls. dust rolls with cinnamon and sugar. bake uncovered for 40 minutes. makes 8 dumplins.
liquid sugar comes out screamin' hot. i let the apples "rest" for about 30 minutes. you can eat it sooner, but at your own risk. (in my opinion, these do not make good leftovers - maybe you'll find a way to reheat them that brings them back to life. i've found they turn into applesauce)
