Amazing Apple Dumplings

This will be a new MUST at every fall apple party.  The perfectly soft apples wrapped in the most heavenly buttery sweet crust.    Adapted from All of Our Twists who took it from The Pioneer Woman. 

2 whole apples (I use whatever firm apple I have on hand--granny smith, golden delicious, empire, cortland, or ginger golds)
2 cans (8 oz. Cans) crescent rolls,  (Pillsbury seem to taste significantly better then generic for this recipe)
2 sticks real butter (trust me, margarine just isn't the same for this one).
1-½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon, to taste
1 can (12 oz.) Sprite soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9x13 glass pan.

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in two rows filling the pan. 

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour about 10oz of sprite around the edges and down the middle of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Let stand about 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
