  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Roll 1 can of crescent rolls out on a cutting board. Make one single piece of dough by rolling the dough with a rolling pin to a 9x13-inch rectangle; make sure the seams don't separate. Repeat with remaining can of crescent rolls. Set 1 dough sheet atop the other to make a double crust.
  3. Mix 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, crushed walnuts, and diced apples in a bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the dough.
  4. Roll the dough lengthwise, so you end up with a long tube. Cut into 1-inch slices. Place the rolls into prepared dish facing up.
  5. Melt butter with 1 1/2 cup white sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves completely, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and whisk citrus-flavored soda into the butter mixture; pour over cinnamon rolls.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and no longer doughy in the middle, about 30 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly, 5 to 10 minutes. Flip the rolls out of the baking dish onto baking sheet and allow the sticky sauce to drip over the rolls.

I did not have any Mountain Dew, but I did find a can of grapefruit beer in the fridge. It worked rather well and the buns disappeared in seconds. Yum

I made these exactly as the recipe said. They taste delicious and I will try them again! My only issue was that the liquid poured over the top didn't all soak in so they were soggy on the bottom...

I will definitely make it again...DELICIOUS!

12.19.15 Unfortunately, I didn’t hear the timer go off, the rolls overbaked, the topping cooked down, and the rolls stuck to the bottom of the baking bad, my fault, not the recipe’s!...
