Apple Season






Last Sunday was the official "Maine Apple Sunday", September 11.
We decided after being on the road half of Saturday , we wanted to stay home Sunday.

We will go soon, in the mean time I purchased a bag from the local farm stand to make dumplings.
I was considering seeking out a new location,but will probably stick with the one we went to in the past.

Apple Dumplings


2 whole Granny Smith apples

2 cans (8 ounces each) crescent rolls

2 sticks butter

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 can (12 ounce) Sprite soda

Cinnamon, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices. Roll each apple in a triangle of crescent roll dough. Place in prepared pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour 1/2 can Sprite around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon; bake for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, if desired

Pour the Sprite carefully around the edge of the pan so the sugar/butter mixture stays on top of the apples.

You also can use Mountain Dew/ this makes the syrup.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
