Our Christmas...and an Apple Dumpling Recipe!

We had so much fun over the Holidays this year. I had more fun watching Robby rip up the wrapping paper on his gifts than I did opening any of mine. Here's a little photo montage of how we spent Christmas!

It's safe to say we had a great time. We must have had too much fun and too little sleep though because shortly after Christmas, all three of us came down with 10-day long colds. Hello, DayQuil Severe. Hello, snotty Robby waking up at 5 am. Goodbye, my old friend sleep. Fun times! Hope your Holiday was filled with wellness!

Here is the Apple Dumpling recipe I made on Christmas Day. One of the ingredients may surprise you, but I guarantee you that it is DELICIOUS. You would never guess what's in there!

Apple Dumplings

4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced into wedges *Each apple should make 8 wedges
2 cans Crescent rolls *Have you noticed I love crescent rolls?
2 sticks butter, melted
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 cup Mountain Dew *I KNOW....but just try it. You won't be sorry, I promise!
  • Preheat oven to 350. Unroll crescent rolls and separate into triangles. 
  • Place two apple wedges on each triangle and roll to enclose the apples. Place in a greased 9x13 pan.
  • Mix butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the rolls. 
  • Add the Mountain Dew to the pan. 
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Smell the goodness as it bakes.
  • Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Try not to eat the whole pan in one's really hard.
