Recipe by TwinTwo821

A co-worker brought this pastry recipe to work one morning during the holidays. It just melts in your mouth and the flavors are so wonderful. If she hadn't given me a copy of the recipe, I never would have guessed you use Mountain Dew. This will quickly become one of your favorites! February 2004, I just wanted to update this recipe. I've been using Splenda and Diet Sierra Mist in place of sugar and Mountain Dew. It still tastes the same.

Amazing recipe, I made it once following the recipe and it was good. Then a made them again with the apples tossed in cinnamon and sugar and also baked for 10 min before the sauce was pored on and they turned out so much better.
