"I received this recipe from a friend of mine, then tweaked it to suit my family's tastes," says Chris Shields of Monrovia, Indiana. Mountain Dew is the "secret" ingredient in this rich apple dessert that's a snap to make.

"I made this recipe for the first time today for our Thanksgiving dinner. I doubled the recipe and put it in a turkey roasting sized throw away rectangular of the huge ones and it held 24 and I added an extra 1/4 cup of Mt. Dew per recipe. We ate them warm without the ice cream and everyone went wild about them. This recipe is a definite keeper."
