Delicious bed and breakfast treat–easy apple dumplings

One of the joys of being an Innkeeper is hearing our guests rave about our breakfasts each morning.  Our bed and breakfast serves a full hot breakfast each morning.  An easy recipe that also incorporates Michigan apples is our “Easy Apple Dumplings” which take very little time to make, but do produce many praises from the Inn guests.  It starts with a refrigerator crescent roll and a large tart apple (such as Granny Smith).  Core and slice the apple into 8 slices, roll each slice inside a crescent and place in a 8×8 pan.  Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 6oz. mountain dew.  Pour mixture over top and bake at 350 for 30 mins.  These are also wonderful serves as a desert with natural vanilla ice cream.  YUM!
