Not quite as "quippy" as my husband, but I figured "Hey, everybody else is doing it" and "Yes, mom, I would jump off a bridge. . . "

Apple Dumplings . . .
Today after we returned from the Johnny Appleseed Festival, I made apple dumplings. While I am sure theirs were good, I know mine are equally as good and I did not have to stand in line for an hour!
I made a half batch which makes 8. This is plenty for our family! If I am taking it to a carry in I will make a full batch. Here is the half batch ingredients:
1 can of crescent rolls 1 apple (I used one Granny Smith and one Macintosh) 1 stick of butter 1 cup of sugar sprinkle of cinnamon About 6 oz of Mountain Dew All you do is roll a few apple slices in each crescent roll triangle. Place in a 9x13 baking dish.
Melt butter and mix in sugar and cinnamon. Pour over dumplings. This is what happens when you try to pour a 2 liter of Mountain Dew over the dumplings while trying to take a picture with your other hand. It is not pretty! You end up crushing the bottle and shooting MD all over the stove.
Pour Mountain Dew over and bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees.
