Sugar Pie Honey Bunch

One of my favorite desserts lately has been these Crescent Roll Apple Pies.  First of all, they are a breeze to fix and take very little ingredients!  You can put them in the oven while you are serving supper and have a great warm dessert after you eat!

The recipe can be doubled depending on how many you are feeding.

Once you try it, I promise you will not only like it, you will make it again and again!

Crescent Roll Apple Pies (makes 8 dumplings)

1 package Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 Granny Smith apple
1 stick butter (Hello, Paula Deen)
1 Cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup Mt. Dew

Spray 8x8 dish with Pam.  Separate crescent rolls, stretch out to make larger on wax paper.  Peel, core and cut apple into 8 pieces.  Roll each apple piece in the crescent rolls and place in dish.

Mix mixture of melted butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Spoon over top of crescents.  Pour Mt. Dew around the rolls.  Do not pour directly on top.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Speaking of sugar pies.....we got to keep our "sweetie pie" for a couple of days and here are a few pictures of that great adventure!

I just thought that this will probably be her last visit to Nonny and Papa's house as an only child!

Going for rides on the ottoman.......wheeeeeee!

I don't know who had the best time........but I think it was us!!

How precious! Some of my BEST childhood memories were at my grandparent's 5th wheel trailer, when they would come from Arizona to Michigan to visit us for the summer. I had so much fun!!!

Boy those crescent apple pie dumplings look good! I may have to try those.

And your little honey bunch looks like she had such a great time with you guys!

I know y'all must be getting so excited to welcome baby Hollis.

Life is good for your sweet family these days!

I have enjoyed following your blog and your daughter's too. I also have a blog which is written to highlight my moments with my grandchildren too! You and I have a common delight in capturing their moments in our lives. I enjoy your recipes too!

The apple pies look yummy, but I couldn't believe it when I saw Mt. Dew was an ingredient.

I know you had fun with Harper last weekend... she looks so cute in her Valentine's outfit. That is adorable!!

I make the "apple dumplings" also, and they are scrumptious! Harper is adorable. I think she looks like Kelly. Can't wait to meet Hollis!

I'm going to make this for din-din tonight! Very excited. If it's not easy for me to make, I end up with chinese take out more often than I wish.

I enjoy both yours and Kelly's blog! I feel like I can relate to you since you and I are both pastor's wives. Happy Friday!

Nina said...

Oh my gosh, that looks so good!!!! I've got to try it!!!

Seriously Though said...

I just came back to your blog to get this recipe. I don't cook very often, but today I'm hoping to have real family meal around the table and thought this looked like easy home-baked yumminess. Thanks

Seriously Though said...

Just thought I'd follow with you and let you know, these were so simple and a big hit. My family didn't I could cook!

So funny how I came across your blog since I follow your daughter's! My husband and I were asked to bring dessert to a friend's dinner tomorrow, and we just bought a big pack of crescent rolls from Sam's, so I thought I would try to find a recipe to use a roll. I was searching and found this recipe again (It's very popular these days--I did find a variation using peaches though!). I started to scroll down and thought, "That looks like Harper from Kelly's Korner!" Well, I guess I would recognize your family if I ran into y'all around NWA since I recognize them out in cyberspace! I look forward to following your blog and seeing your recipes. :)
