Mama’s Losin’ It

This writing prompt came at the perfect time of year. Last week, instead of birthday cake, Owen, chose Key Lime Pie, and with 2 weeks left until her birthday, Sophia, has already made her birthday dessert request... 

Mountain Dew Dumplings. They are not really called Mountain Dew Dumplings, but that's what the kids here in The Compound call them. 

I call them Ass Dimpling Dumplings. Which is super fun to say 5 times fast!

Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, calls them Apple Dumplings. 

Whatever we call them, I know, we all agree - they are frickin' amazing. 
I feel I need to warn you though, if eaten alone these Ass Dimpling Dumplings, can make your teeth ache.  I read in a medical journal somewhere that sugar fiber has that effect on overly sensitive people. 
I've found that a scoop of vanilla ice cream can really ease tooth discomfort...or was it increase tooth decay...whatever.

Without further ado, here is the recipe for Ass Dimpling Dumplings.

2 whole Granny Smith Apples
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter
1-1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Cinnamon, To Taste
1 can (12 Oz.) Mountain Dew Soda

Preparation Instructions
Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. 
Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. 
Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. 
Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. 
Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
WARNING: Prepare this dish at your own risk. It is beyond imaginable.
