My very first PW

I really enjoy, and when I say enjoy I mean LOVE, Pioneer Woman's recipes. Her pictures always have me drooling, her food pictures that is. I have several of them saved but today, for the first time, I actually made one!! When I saw the picture in her side bar I was intrigued, hmmmm apple dumpling, never made them- actually never even had them. Then I clicked on the picture, read the recipe, and the drooling begin.

So a week later, today, I gathered the ingred. (I had to hide the last 2 green apples in my cupboard from the kids) and whipped them together. All my girls helped, this recipe is great for little helpers the only thing they couldn't do was put it in the oven. (Warning if kids are helping make these have extra Apples on hand, little snitchers.) There are only 7 ingred. and 4 of those are in your regular old baking stash-
Sugar
Cinnamon
Butter
Vanilla
Green Apples
Cresent Roll Dough
Mountain Dew

You can get the recipe and directions here- PW Apple Dumplings.
Putting them together took just minutes, but then they do take about 40 min. to bake. It was hard to wait for them, oh but they were totally worth it just look at this yummy goodness-

Here, need a closer look????

Put one on a plate and add a scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream

Yummy, these are incredible and very easy to prepare. But don't just take my word for it, go make some!

I LOVE PW!! I made her Texas Sheet Cake... it is sooooo good! From start to finish it only takes me about 30 minutes to have a cake made from scratch and ready to serve. Everyone raves about it when I make it.
I will have to try these. They look very yummy!!

5th Sister-
lol, my pw recipe to try list in down by one =)

Purplehoodie-
It is weird, the only reason I could think of for the MD is to keep the apples from browning, or for a citrus flavor. Don't know??? =)
