Peach Dumplings

     Copy this recipe to your hard drive and save it in your 'died and gone to heaven' file.  Peaches, butter, sugar and cinnamon all wrapped in warm, soft bundles of dough, what could be better than this?  I only wish I had topped them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  You can also substitute the peaches with apple slices and cover them with Mountain Dew instead of Sprite.  Either way, this scrumptious, easy to assemble dessert is guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.  I cooked them in a 12 inch oven with 10 coals in a circle on the bottom and about 20 on top.  They were done in 35 minutes.  I discovered this recipe in an online cooking forum.

Peach Dumplings
1 29 oz. can sliced peaches, drained
2 cans of Crescent Rolls
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 12 oz. can Sprite or 7 Up

     Lightly spray or oil 12 inch dutch oven.
     Unroll and separate Crescent Rolls.  Place one peach slice on wide end of each section and roll to completely cover.  Place in bottom of oven.
     Melt butter and mix with sugar, don't worry about melting sugar, mixture will be lumpy.  Pour butter mixture over dumplings.
     Pour soda around the edge of dumplings.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.
     Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until dumplings are puffed and golden.
     Serves 6.

Mmmmm, the only thing missing is ice cream


  1. What if u don't have a Dutch oven to make the peach dumplings

    1. Hi Sheila, the original recipe calls for baking them at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes in a 9 by 13 inch pan in your conventional oven. Thanks for stopping by, Liddy
