Apple Bundles*

Posted on

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 panggangan to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13″ 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…

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
