What are peach dumplings?
Peach dumplings are one of the best desserts! The sweet peach slices paired with the flaky crescent rolls make this one dessert cuisine that is popular for a reason.
You’ll find this golden brown goodness on any menu in the south, as it’s one of the most popular ways to use fresh peaches.
- Crescent rolls – You can’t make crescent roll peach dumplings without crescent roll dough.
- Butter – I like to use unsalted butter for this easy recipe.
- Sugar – Just a little bit of sugar is needed for this easy dessert.
- Lemon-lime soda – Helps add a fun flavor to these dumplings.
- Cinnamon – Ground cinnamon is best!
- Brown sugar – The melted butter with brown sugar makes the best flavor.
- Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract offers the best taste.
- Peaches – Fresh peaches are preferred, but canned peaches and frozen peaches could be used in a pinch.
Step One – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking dish. (9X13) Prep the peaches.
Step Two – Put a peach slice into each crescent roll and roll it closed.
Step Three – Make sure that it’s all closed so that the seam doesn’t leak out any of the goodness!
Step Four – Complete with all the crescent rolls and peaches. Add them to the baking dish.
Step Five – Add the melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon to a bowl.
Step Six – Whisk the mixture and set the bowl aside.
Step Seven – Take the previously made butter mixture and pour it over the top of the rolls.
Step Eight – Grab the soda and pour it around the inside of the dish.
Step Nine – Put the peach dumplings into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Step Ten – Remove once the rolls are golden brown. Serve with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream!
How to serve:
- You can’t go wrong with ice cream! You can also top it with whipped cream or a little bit of powdered sugar. When it comes to comfort food flavors, have fun!
- This easy dessert recipe is also delicious without toppings. You can scoop and enjoy without adding any ice cream or whipped cream as well! Serve warm and eat!
Fresh peaches are the best option, but you can also use frozen or canned. If you do use frozen peaches, factor in a bit more prep time as you’ll want to thaw and drain them first.
Yes, you can change this peach dumpling recipe into delicious apple dumplings! The apple version is going to taste very similar with just a little bit more crunch. You’ll still be able to add vanilla ice cream right on top!
Using ice cream for serving up the warm dessert means that you have plenty of options. You can pair the peach flavor with chocolate ice cream or even a fun sherbert as well.
If you have leftovers, just add a lid to your baking dish and store them in the fridge. You can then reheat and enjoy that awesome flavor all over again.
