This is why I need the free Wii.
Holy toledo, these puppies are yummy. I found the recipe eons ago on the Pioneer Woman Cooks website, and bookmarked them for some reason in my gluten-free folder. I have no idea why, except for maybe at the time I wanted to try and attempt them gluten-free.
I then promptly forgot all about trying to tweak the recipe.
It's been a hundred million degrees here the last few days, and sweating buckets makes me feel like a-little-something sweet. So I dug through the cubbards and fridge and found a way to make them. Gluten free. In the crockpot.
And they rock.
--2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls.
* Unless you are gluten free. If you are gluten free, use this recipe. I followed it to the letter except that I doubled it, used Pamela's, and used sour cream instead of cottage cheese. It is a delicious, moist, yummy dough that is perfect for so many things; I am positively giddy to have found it! (psst. chill your dough for at least 2 hours!) *
--2 granny smith apples
--1 stick of butter
--1 cup white sugar
--1 t vanilla
--1 t cinnamon
--1 cup Mountain Dew
Spray your crock insert with cooking spray.
If you are using the crescent rolls, roll out the little triangles and fill each one with an apple slice or two and roll it up.
If you are using the GF dough, do the same thing, but realize that it will be a bit lumpy and not quite as thin. It's okay. This dough recipe is beyond fantastic. Seriously.
Pile the crockpot high with all of your little dumpling guys.
Melt the stick of butter in the microwave, and stir in the cup of sugar, and the cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over the dumplings, making sure to get down in the nooks and crannies.
Then add 1 cup of Mountain Dew, the same way---pour it over the top. It will make a delightful bubbly sound!
Prop lid open with a wooden spoon or chopstick and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or until the dough is brown and cooked through.
Delicious, moist, and gooey. They were very, very sweet. The kids (those nutty kids) couldn't eat their whole serving because of how sweet they were.
Adam and I didn't seem to have that problem.
I liked them even better the next morning cold.
Have I mentioned how beyond stoked I am to have this basic gluten-free dough recipe that I can fool around with? I'm thinking overnight pull-apart rolls, cinnamon buns, crescent rolls for Thanksgiving...
eek! I'm so excited!
OH! and I haven't had Mountain Dew in years. I couldn't waste the bottle, so I finished it. LOL, I was instant-messaging with Laura and was so hopped up on caffeine and sugar I could hardly type.
