Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings are crisp apples wrapped in a crescent dumpling and baked to a golden brown. These apple dumplings have a cinnamon and sugar topping and of course Mountain Dew that incredible lightness to the dumplings.
Mountain Dew Dumplings stand out because the pop in the dish offers such tender dumplings, that will leave you wanting more. I remember the first time I had these, I was shocked that Mountain Dew was an ingredient that was used in these sweet apple dumplings.
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
The best part of all about this apple dumplings recipe with Mountain Dew is the simplicity of the recipe. I use crescent roll canned dough to save a ton of time prepping, and the hardest part is waiting for them to come out of the oven!
What Kind Of Apples Are Best For Apple Dumplings
For this particular apple dumpling recipe, I found that Granny Smith apples offer the best flavor. But you are welcome to use any other baking apple that is a crisp and firm apple. Jonagold, Braunaum, Honeycrisps, all work as well. I just love the tartness the Granny Smith’s offer next to the dumpling dough and cinnamon and sugar.
How Long Does It Take To Bake Mountain Dew Dumplings
You will bake your dumplings around 35-40 minutes, or until they are golden brown and the dumplings are cooked through. Then remove from the oven and allow them to cool down slightly before serving. They will be extremely hot and the sauce can burn you easily if touched.
Can I Substitute Mountain Dew in Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
Yes, you can substitute the Mountain Dew in this recipe. Any lighter colored soda will work. Ginger ale, Sprite, 7Up, and even things like sparkling apple cider. Just ensure it has a bubbly effect so that it helps to give your dumplings a light and airy texture.
Do You Have to Refrigerate Apple Dumplings
Yes, you will want to refrigerate your apple dumplings once you are done eating them. If you have leftovers place in an airtight container and then store in the fridge for 3-5 days. Then eat chilled or reheat as you go for that fresh out of the oven taste.
Can I Double This Mountain Dew Apple Turnover Recipe
Yes, you can make as many of these as you would like. You would just need to use another 9×13 pan, if you plan to double the recipe. You don’t want to crowd the pan or it will not cook properly.
