Simple Apple Dumplings

In the search for a quick dessert to use up a few items I had on hand, I came across this simple recipe.

Simple Apple Dumplings

1 granny smith apple
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup Sprite, Ginger Ale, or Mountain Dew

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 8" or 9" square baking pan.

Cut apple into 8 wedges. Remove core and peel.

Separate the roll dough into triangles. Starting at the small end, roll each apple wedge into a triangle of dough. Place into baking dish.

Combine butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour over the dumplings. Pour desired soda pop over dumplings.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until dumplings are golden brown.

Serve immediately, topped with vanilla ice cream.
