German Apple Dumplings: Simplified

Tonight I made some Easy German Apple Dumplings for my hubby and kids.  My husband ate them, and ate them, and ate them.  They absolutely loved them.  I thought I would take the time to share them with you all.  They are very easy to make and come out deliciously.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
German Apple Dumplings:  Simplified
  •  3 c. sugar
  •  2 c. butter/margarine
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 12 oz. Mountain Dew
  • cinnamon
  1. Melt butter/margarine in a small pot. 
  2. Once it is completely melted, stir in the sugar and 2 tsp. of cinnamon.  Stir and allow to come to a small boil.
  3. As it is cooking, unroll each crescent roll and leave each roll in its triangular form. 
  4. Peel and core the apples.  Then cut apples into 8 pieces each.
  5. Place an apple slice on the small end of a crescent roll and roll it up and seal the edges.
  6. Place them in an oiled cake pan.
  7. Once the liquid has come to a small boil, pour the mixture over each "dumpling".
  8. Pour the Mountain Dew over each dumpling.
  9. Sprinkle each with cinnamon.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. 
  11. Once the apples are softened, serve alone and drizzled with the sauce or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
