Cooking dumplings in a slow cooker

From Cookipedia

Can you cook dumplings in a slow cooker? Yes, of course you can - it's really easy.

They'll need to be cooked in a soup or stew; cook the stew in the slow cooker as you would normally and just add the dumplings to the stew for the last hours and cook with the lid on.

They are very nice but they won't be crispy - you'll need to finish then off under the grill if you want crunchy dumplings.
