RECIPE FAQ + HELPFUL TIPS

These are the most frequently asked questions when making peach cobbler with crescent rolls. You’ll find the tips and answers very helpful!

TIPS FOR BUYING PEACHES?

NOTICE SKIN COLOR: Peaches with green skins are unripe. Choose peaches with skins that are red and yellow.

EXAMINE FRUIT FOR BRUISES: The fruit should be fairly firm on all sides. Avoid peaches that have brown, tender, mushy spots.

SMELL THE FRUIT: If the peaches are fragrant, it indicates ripeness.

BEST METHOD FOR PEELING PEACHES?

The blanch/shock method.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. With a slotted spoon, lower peaches into the water. Let them blanch for 35 seconds. Immediately transfer fruit to an ice water bath to shock them.

Once peaches have cooled, gently pull off the skins with your fingertips.

BEST WAY TO PIT PEACHES?

After the skins have been removed, cut each peach in half. Run a knife vertically (top to bottom) around the entire peach. Twist the halves in opposite directions and pull them apart. Remove the pit.

WHAT BRAND LEMON-LIME SODA FOR PEACH DUMPLING RECIPE?

Any type can be used, but I prefer the citrus flavors in Squirt.

More options: 7-up, Sprite, Jones Lemon-Lime Soda, Fresca, Bubble Up, Sierra Mist, Mountain Dew Ice, Sierra Mist, Shasta Twist, Blue Sky.

CAN THIS RECIPE BE DOUBLED?

Yes! It’s easy to double this recipe. Use a 9 x 13 baking dish.

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER PEACH DUMPLINGS?

Once the dessert rolls are completely cool, tightly wrap the baking dish in plastic and refrigerate. The dumplings will stay fresh with a good texture for up to 3 days.

HOW TO REHEAT PEACH COBBLER WITH DUMPLINGS?

MICROWAVE: The quickest and easiest way to reheat individual portions of this dessert is on a heat-safe plate in the microwave. Heat in 25-second intervals until the desired warmth is reached.

OVEN: Preheat oven to 350°F. Transfer desired quantity to a small baker. Heat the cold rolls for 12 minutes, or until they’re warm all the way through. Cool the peach dumplings for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
