  • 2 apples (Granny Smith or Jonagold work well)
  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 (12 oz.) can or bottle of Mountain Dew, Sprite or 7-Up

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray bottom of 9″ x 13″ pan with cooking spray.  Core and peel apples.  Slice into 8 pieces.  Unroll crescent rolls on wax paper, sprinkle with cinnamon and separate by scoring at the perforations of the rolls with a knife.  Place 1 apple slice on top of each triangle; roll up and place seam-side down in pan.  There will be 6 on each side of the pan and 4 placed between the 2 rows down the middle of the pan.  Sprinkle lightly with more cinnamon.

In medium sauce pan, melt butter over low heat.  Stir in sugar.  Mix well; add vanilla and salt.  You may add a bit of cinnamon to this mixture if you wish.  Stir well.  Pour/spoon over cinnamon-topped rolls.  Pour soft Mountain Dew over all.  Sprinkle more cinnamon or cinnamon/sugar mixture to your taste over all of this.

Bake for 30 minutes.  Let sit 45 to 60 minutes to absorb liquid after removing from oven.  You may warm up before serving, if desired.  Makes 16 servings.

Recipe may be halved, but use smaller baking dish.
