Peach Dumplings

Hi guys!! Happy Friday! Has it been a long week for y’all?? What better way to celebrate making it to the weekend than by embracing the last few peaches in your grocery store and treating yourself to these decadent Peach Dumplings?

My Aunt Linda gave me this recipe (along with some fresh South Carolina peaches!!) in early August and I made this dessert as I soon as got back from Delaware because it sounded so intriguing! I’m sorry its taken me so long to share the recipe with y’all, because these were so sinfully delicious!

To make these Peach Dumplings you need the following: 2 peaches, 1 8-ounce can of crescent rolls, 1 stick of unsalted butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 6 ounces of Mountain Dew.  I know what you’re saying, Mountain Dew??? In a dessert? Trust me – this is wonderful!!!

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and spraying and 8×8 casserole dish with nonstick spray. Next, melt the stick of butter in the microwave. I like to do this in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Once the butter has melted, add the 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Next, add 3/4 cup of sugar.

Stir to combine.

After preparing the sugar and butter mixture, open your crescent rolls and peel the peaches.

After peeling, cut the peaches into quarters. Discard the pits!

Roll one peach quarter in a crescent roll triangle.

Place the rolled peach into the greased casserole dish. Repeat this step with the rest of the peach segments and crescent rolls. Peaches in blankets!!!!

Now we want to pour the melted butter and sugar mixture all over the peaches.

Follow the butter and sugar mixture with the 6 ounces of Mountain Dew.

Make sure the peaches are evenly coated with sauce and place the casserole in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven after 45 minutes. Almost there!

Use a serving spoon to plate, making sure to drizzle with sauce! Serve with whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream! You don’t really need the whipped cream or ice cream, they’re wonderful on their own. But if you’re gonna go all out on a dessert, why not really go all out, right?!

These were very easy to make, and were such a treat!! The crescent rolls get nice and crunchy, which is a perfect contrast to the peaches and the super sweet sauce. Make this soon, before summer ends!!!
