Buttery-Sweet Dessert with Protection
This dessert is simple to make and tastes awesome right out of the oven, or reheated the next day.
I'm not sure which is more dangerous - the .380 protecting it, or the butter content used to make it.

"Easy apple dumplings" and an F.I. Industries Model D .380 ACP

Basically it's sliced apples wrapped in crescent rolls and a mixture of butter, sugar, vanilla, Mountain Dew, and cinnamon.
I'll post the recipe if anyone wants it.

Going into the oven...

Mmmm... this stuff is AWESOME served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sadly, we had none available. Sad

I like to remove them to a platter, as the buttery sauce tends to make them a bit soggy on the bottom if left to sit in the pan...

Some of the "sauce" that was left in the pan. You can discard it, add some more to your dish, or pour it in a container to reheat later...

This dessert is very, very sweet (borderline TOO sweet for my taste), and is in no way, shape, or form good for you, but it makes a great occasional treat, and goes a long way, as I don't think anyone could eat more than two of them at a time.

OK, more gun photos...

Any questions, feel free to ask!
Don't wait too long though, as I can feel my arteries clogging already! :eek:

Sorry the photos aren't that great - the kitchen lighting is bad, and my "photo" light burned out right when I started taking pics. Ugh.

"Easy Apple Dumplings"


• 2 Whole granny smith apples
• 2 cans(tubes) (8 oz. ea) Crescent Rolls
• 2 sticks butter
• 1 1/2 cup sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 can (12 oz.) Mountain Dew
• Cinnamon to taste


Peel and core apples.
Cut each apple into 8 slices.
Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll
Place in 9x13 buttered pan

Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir.
Add vanilla, stir, and pour mixture over rolled apples.
Pour Mountain Dew around edges of pan.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Serve with ice cream and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.

• The fist time we made this, we followed directions, but used a pan that was a bit smaller. The sauce seemed to soak in more making them a bit soggy. (smaller pan = "deeper" sauce = more area to soak in)
This time, we used the type of pan as indicated and the sauce wasn't as "deep" and the tops "crisped-up" a little more.

• We also reduced the butter used. (Used 1 3/4 sticks instead of 2)

• The first time we made this, we felt there should be "more apple" in each roll, so this time we put two slices inside each crescent roll. I think we used 3 apples, but I'm not sure.

• This dessert is good by itself, but it is heavenly when served warm, with a scoop of ice cream.

• You can buy "reduced fat" crescent rolls to make this "healthy". ROFLMAO!

• Your home will smell buttery-sweet for hours! (drool)

Nice pistol. Never seen that model before.

Yeah, I hear that a lot. I've not done extensive research, but I believe they were made/in business in the 70's.
It's a Colt copy. "Star" made them as well.
Actually "copy" suggests "similar", but... well, read below to see what I mean.

From another forum, in response to someone looking for info on the same handgun:

Quote:Interesting history bit on this pistol. Firearms Int'l (FI) was an importer that got absorbed by another importer, Garcia Sporting Arms, in 1971. FI was importing Rossi and Star firearms at the time, and before the Gun Control Act of 1968 the Star "Starfire" which was known in Europe as the Star DK. The gun did not meet importation requirement under GCA 68 and was banned.

Garcia tooled up Firearms International to make frames with a couple of small changes (longer grip spur, for one) and struck a deal with Colt, who wanted a small .380 pistol in its line, to produce the Colt "Pony" using FI-made frames and possibly also slides with other parts imported from Star in Spain. These frames had serial numbers starting with 'CPA.' Colt was having one of its internal upheavals and they never got any guns out to speak of - Colt 'Pony' pistols from this run are fairly rare. Garcia/FI had all these frames and the FI Model D was born.

Firearms International went away in the late 1970's and the gun resurfaces as the Iver Johnson 'Pony' still using frames serialized 'CPA.' This is all intertwined with Lou Imperato and his various gun enterprises in the late 1960's through 1980's. Wouldn't it be neat if Henry Repeating Arms (Lou's last business and now his son's) were producing the gun now?

My wife and I have made that recipe before, it was quite good. We were a little turned off when we saw it had Mountain Dew in it (we figured it would be gross), but the reviews were great so we went for it. Lo and behold, it was delicious.
