Number of Servings: 8


    Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls, 2 tubes
    Granny smith apples 2 large, cut bite size chunks
    Splenda or other substitute (or sugar) 1 cup
    Light butter 1/3 cup melted
    Diet Mountain Dew or Diet Mellow Yellow 10oz
    Apple Pie Spice 2 Tblsp
    Cinnamon, ground 2 Tblsp

    13 X 9 baking dish


Peaches or Pears work as well as apples for a change of flavors...any fresh berry would also!


Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl add chunked apples, spices and 1/4c of the Splenda. Toss together to coat apples. Mix remaining Splenda with melted butter and set aside. Open tubes of crescent roll dough and separate into 8 rectangles (do not tear into regular triangles...each tube gives 4 rectangles) On each rectangle put heaping TBlsp of apple mix in center and poke a "well" in middle, add 1tsp melted butter blend.
USE your hands and bring up sides of dough into a pouch shape and pinch to seal edges. Doesn't have to be fancy.
Place the 8 pouches in baking dish and pour diet soda into dish from the side, NOT ON TOP of dough, just so they sit in a bath of soda. Bake 350 for 35mins or until golden brown. Remove and cool 5mins, then spoon the syrup the cooked soda became onto pouches. Serve immediately with frozen vanilla yogurt or ice cream.
