Apple Cobbler with Mountain Dew

Have you heard of soda or soft drinks being added to your cooking? My father use it for his Humba or caramelized tender pork and other dishes. It's like a secret recipe. Other people use it as a recipe for side dishes like Kimchi. I just saw it on a drama once. Anyway, in this recipe, a soda is added and baked along with the apples and the crescent rolls. I think Sprite is also okay with this. That is what we used back in Philippines for Humba. Maybe any soda that has lemon flavor will do. We even used Coke back then. But we used Mountain Dew this time. We served it last Christmas dinner. So here's the recipe from
2 Granny Smith Apples (peel and slice into 8 sections each)
2 cans crescent rolls (1 can for each apple)
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups Mountain Dew
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Wrap each 1/8 apple section in crescent roll dough. Place in lightly greased baking dish. Melt butter & stir in sugar. Spread over apples. Pour Mountain Dew over apples. DO NOT STIR.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped pecans.
Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for approximately 45 minutes.
Can be served with ice cream or whipped cream.
