These "Easy Peasy Peach Dumplings" are made easy by using canned crescent rolls. This is a recipe that made it's way all around Pinterest and then Facebook and while these recipes look interesting and usually very good, I like to test them out before I post them for you all to try. It has been my experience that some are good and some are not so good. Then there are some that just need some adaptation. This one was very good and it did need a few changes, but overall it works well. Here is what you will need:
4 medium size peaches, peeled, pitted and cut in 4 slices each or an equal amount of canned peach slices, drained
2 (8 oz.) cans crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury butter flake ones)
2 stick butter (1 cup), melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 can lemon lime flavored soda (I used Sprite)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Separate the crescent rolls into triangles. Roll one peach slice in each crescent roll and place in a 9"x`3" baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. This recipe called for using two peaches and if you had huge peaches, maybe that will work, but with just regular size peaches, you need at least 4. I like some peach actually in this and just two would not be enough. Melt the butter and mix in the sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over the crescent bundles.
Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon. Pour the soda around the edges of the crescent rolls, not over the tops so the cinnamon remains on top. Place in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes!
The top should just be browning when they are done!
These are best served warm with ice cream or whipped cream! Delicious! You can also do this with apples!
