These delicious peach dumplings are made with succulent summer peaches and crescent rolls. This is the easy vintage recipe our grandmothers made! Assemble this dessert in 15 minutes then bake.
- 1 large peach
- 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls (8-count)
- 1/2 cup butter, plus more for greasing
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
FOR SERVING: Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
RECIPE PREP: Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and core the peach. Cut it into 8 slices. With butter, lavishly grease bottom and sides of an 8 x 8 baking dish. Create a non-stick work surface: line a board or tray with parchment paper.
- Open and unwrap the container of crescent dough on prepared work surface. Unroll the dough. Separate it into individual triangles.
- Work with one triangle at a time. Place a peach slice near the wider end of the dough. Roll the dough over the peach and all the way up toward the skinny pointed end of the triangle. Tuck the edges of the dough in and under to cover the dumpling. Transfer peach dumpling to buttered baking dish.
- Make a thick caramel sauce. Melt butter on stovetop or in the microwave. Whisk in granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Drizzle sweet caramel sauce over top of peach dumplings. Pour lemon lime soda around the sides of the rolls, but not on top!
- Bake the rolls for 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is golden and the fruit is fork tender. Remove peach dumplings from the oven. Let them sit and shed heat for 10 minutes before serving.
HOW TO SERVE PEACH DUMPLINGS: Serve warm dumplings in small bowls (or on dessert plates) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream.
BEST WAY TO PEEL 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.
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.
