Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings are a fall favorite. Our recent visit to Val’s Pumpkin Patch to pick apples was the perfect reason to make some with Maggie. Apple picking and baking fall goodies are both found on our Fall Bucket List post. Check it out for more fun activities.

Which Types of Apples Are Best?

Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

1. Granny Smith

The Granny Smith apple is my go-to apple for any baked or cooked recipe. The tart apple helps to keep the end product from being overly sweet, and it keeps its shape beautifully when baked.

2. Jonathan or Jonagold

These apples are very similar in flavor and how they behave when baked. Jonathan apples are mildly sweet and tart.

3. Cortland

Don’t push this small apple to the side. It’s slightly softer than the other apples on this list, but still keeps its shape well. With a good balance of both sweet and tart flavors, it shines in savory or sweet applications.

4. Braeburn

As part Granny Smith, the Braeburn apple brings the same great qualities to a recipe, but it’s slightly sweeter.

5. Honeycrisp

Perhaps the easiest apple to find, the Honeycrisp wins the prize for being one of the most versatile and widely available. With a crisp, juicy texture, Honeycrisps are lovely eaten out of hand, but they also bake up wonderfully. As the name implies, these apples are sweet with a hint of honey, but they are still mild enough to play well in any baked good. We used honeycrisp in our Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings. After we picked them fresh at Val’s Pumpkin Patch we knew they would be perfect.
