Growing up I did not cook much. I had two older sisters that took care of that task. One of the first meals I cooked for Bill after we were married was green beans and cornbread. Well, the green beans were crunchy and the cornbread was flat and hard as a brick. I didn't know I should have used self-rising cornmeal. Poor Bill, being the wonderful man he is, ate that meal and didn't complain. We laugh about it now but it wasn't very funny to me back then. I do a little better job now. I am not a fancy, smancy cook. My recipes are simple, mostly good ol' southern cooking. Sometimes I hit a home run and sometimes I don't. If I don't, there is always take out or drive through. Right?
These dumplings are so easy and delicious. I hope you try them.
Apple / Peach Dumplings
2 Cans Crescent Rolls
2 Apples or 2 Peaches - Peeled and Cored - Cut into 8 slices each
2 Sticks of Butter
1 1/2 Cups of Sugar
1 12 ounce can of Mountain Dew
1 tsp. of vanilla
1. Prepare your apples or peaches. Wrap each slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
2. Melt the butter and stir in the sugar. It is ok if it is a little lumpy.
3. Stir in the vanilla. Pour mixture over the crescent rolls.
4. Now, pour the Mountain Dew around the sides of the dish. I even pour it down the middle of the dish.
5. Sprinkle cinnamon on each crescent.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 45 minutes.
Lordy, Lordy they are delicious. A dollop of vanilla ice cream goes well with them too - just saying! ENJOY!!!
