As much as I love butter, the quantity called for here is much more than is necessary or, in my humble opinion, desired. The same goes for the sugar, where 1/2-cup is more than a plenty. Think about it. There are 24 tablespoons of sugar in 1-1/2 cups, so that's 1-1/2 tablespoons of sugar for each 1/8-wedge of apple wrapped in canned crescent-roll dough, and that doesn't include the sugar in the Mountain Dew.
I'd also suggest the recipe is more complex than necessary. I have a burner-proof deep-dish pie plate. A pie tin would work, as well. I melt my butter in the pie plate on the stove top, add the sugar, cinnamon and Mountain Dew once the butter is melted, and transfer the syrup off the stove top. Then I preheat my oven, put together the apples and crescent-roll dough, place the dough covered apples in the warm syrup, and put the dish in the oven to bake as directed. Note also that a cup of water and the juice of half a lemon or lime is a healthy alternative to the carbonated soda pop.
