Peach Dumplings

Just a sweet little recipe to help you enjoy the last of these juicy, delicious summer peaches. Being from The Peach State, they are quite a weakness each week I pass them on the produce aisle. I don’t make many desserts at my house (we try to avoid lots of processed sugar), but every once in awhile, I like to make a good, old-fashioned, unhealthy and crazy-good Southern dessert… and this one definitely fits the profile. 😉 

Peach Dumplings

Original recipe found over at OMG Chocolate Desserts blog, but my tweaked recipe is below. 

2 peaches, cut into about 8 slices total

1 can of refrigerated crescent dough (use a can that contains the dough for 8 crescent rolls)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 stick of butter

1 tsp lemon juice

3/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)

3/4 cup orange soda (I used Fanta because it was on sale – but any orange soda should work)

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and butter an 8×8 glass baking dish.

-Roll a slice of peach into each crescent roll and place inside the dish.

-Melt butter in a glass cup in microwave (or in a small pot on stove), and stir in brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Stir until completely mixed and sauce becomes thick.

-Pour sauce over the dumplings.

-Pour soda around the dumplings (try not to pour directly on top).

-Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Serve warm and gooey. 🙂

These calories are definitely worth one of my 5am runs. Definitely.

  1. I make peach dumplings and apple dumplings like these. I toss my apples, peaches, or pears with cinnamon and sugar before rolling them in the dough and I use sprite rather than orange. Everyone loves them.
