Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Apple Bundles*

I didn't know anything this simple to make could taste so goooooooood!  Really,...just crescent roll dough, apples, butter, sugar, cinnamon and a can of citrus soda??

Since this is more the 'old time' version of apple dumplings, 
their bottom ends up 'slightly soft/soggy' (on purpose).  

*This is a favorite dessert of our 
Grandson-in-law, Steven Schloemer!!

Yield: 16 Apple Dumplings **

  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored (any other 'firm' apple will do)
  • 2 of 10 oz. cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 of 12 fluid ounce can or bottle of Mountain Dew® (I used a can of Sierra Mist®)
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13" baking dish.
  2.  Peel, core, and cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside.
  3.  Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles.
  4. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end.  Pinch to seal all edges and place in the baking dish.
  5. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugars and cinnamon-- heat until very smooth and bubbly.  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.   Pour over the apple dumplings.
  6. Pour soda over the dumplings and sauce.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.  
Just before going into the oven, they look like this 
(the 'lighter color' is from the fizzy in the soda)...

When they come out of the oven, 
they will look like this...
