I can't believe I forgot about this recipe. DIVINE. Heaven wrapped up in a pillowy crust. The Pioneer Woman is a genius.
2 whole Granny Smith Apples (I use whatever firm apple I have on hand)
2 cans (8 oz. Cans) crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1-½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon, to taste
1 can (12 oz.) Mountain Dew soda
Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
WARNING: Prepare this dish at your own risk. It is beyond imaginable.
