I have a similar recipe that uses canned biscuits and 7-up or Sprite. We like using the biscuits better (separating the layers into two pieces of biscuit). This dessert is delicious and always a conversation piece!

This recipe is incorrect and the consistency of the topping wrong. Use 1 c. Butter melted and then stir in 2/3 c. Sugar and 1t cinnamon. Pour THAT on top of crescent rolls and then pour Mountain Dew around the sides. Just made this yesterday for company. Delicious!

These are so easy and fun to make, and they turned out very well. The Mountain Dew is a great conversation piece too - people find it hard to believe they are an ingredient in this dessert! Next time I will probably reduce the sugar a bit, since they were quite sweet made as is.

I made this wonderful dessert with golden delicious apples for church potluck and served with ice cream...out of this world! Golden delicious apples hold their shape when baked and are so, so good!

Made this last night, very good! I was very skeptical because the mix of butter, sugar, and cinnamon ( I also added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg) wasn’t a sprinkling consistentcy. Placed on top of dumplings by tablespoonful. Baked into a nice crunch! I also only used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup of sugar. Personal preference, Was perfectly sweetened and buttery. Will definitely make again and will try with even less butter. Thank you Chris

Quick and easy dessert that tastes delicious! I like Janet's suggestion of using peaches - thanks!

This recipe is wonderful, but try it with peaches. I REALLY like it with peaches a lot better. Instead of Mountain Dew I use pineapple juice - gives it a better taste.
