Apple dumplings are a classic comfort food, often reminiscent of autumn harvests and cozy evenings by the fire. The dish itself is deeply rooted in American cuisine, with variations known to have been enjoyed since the early colonial days. This slow cooker rendition, with the unexpected addition of Mountain Dew, adds an extra layer of sweetness and helps to tenderize the apples as they cook. The soda’s citrus undertones infuse the dumplings with a unique zest, ensuring a delightful surprise in every bite.
