Apple Dew

Apple dew is one of my favorite "quick" desserts. (The picture doesn't give it justice.) It was the first dessert that I made Ryan when we were dating and he asks for it every time he sees granny smith apples. I like to make this for guests and try to make them guess what is in it. No one has been able to guess correctly because no one would ever think that Mountain Dew is a key component. The crescent rolls are light and crisp and the apples in the center bake until they are as soft as butter. The soda makes for a warm sticky sauce that tastes wonderful over vanilla ice cream.
Apple Dew
2 granny smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 c. Mountain Dew
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cut, core and peel each apple into 8 slices. Roll out crescent triangles and place an apple slice in the middle of each. Roll up crescent from the widest side of the triangle to the tip. Place each apple roll in a 9x13 baking dish. Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, melt butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cinnamon over medium heat, stirring until melted. Add Mountain Dew, stir until combined and then remove from heat. Pour butter mixture over rolls and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
