Recipe of the Week-Apple Dew

This recipe is awesome!  My brother-in-law, Travis, made this for me back in 2004 and since then I make it at least once or twice a year.  It was the one highlight in a really bad series of events and an absolutely horrible day!  So that should tell you that it is a pretty good dessert. After you see the ingredients you will understand why I don't make it more than that!  I have tried to make a diet version by substituting several different things.  Once I made it with fat-free crescent rolls, just 1 stick of butter, Splenda sugar substitute and diet Mountain Dew.  It was nasty.  I would suggest picking just one diet thing to substitute...that seems to be the trick.  I usually use the Diet Mountain Dew.  Anyway, we love this dessert and I know you will too!

2 peeled granny Smith apple (or other apple of your choice)
2 cans crescent roll
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
10 ounces Mountain dew


1.  Cut apples in 1/8 separate slices. Roll 1 slice apple in ea roll and lay in pan.

2.  Melt butter add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour mixture over top of rolled apples. Pour Dew over top and bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

  1. I love the fact that we share so many favorite recipes. I make this all the time. I have used sprite before with no difference i the result. These are so yummy!

  2. This is fantastic! We remember it as the awesome desert that felt like mana from heaven for two very very tired new parents when you brought us dinner that night after Ethan was born!

  3. Oh yeah, can't wait to try it...

    Lots of yummy love,

  4. I made this the other day. My boys loved it. Having two Diabetics in the house, I had no choice but to use the Spenda and Diet Mtn Dew version. They didn't know the difference and were just happy I made a dessert.


I love comments! You make my day!
