Whip up a sweet taste of Summer all year long!
When it comes to dumplings, our general opinion is that you can’t go wrong. Carbs? Yes, please. Carbs with a delicious treat tucked inside? Even better. These easy peach dumplings fall into the latter category and we promise you’ll be hooked with the first bite!
We first tried a similar version of apple dumplings at a potluck a few years back and knew we needed to find a summary version. Peaches were just the thing! While we did use canned peaches here, we highly recommend going with fresh peaches when they’re available! You also have some flexibility in your soda choice. We’ve seen people use Sprite, Mountain Dew, 7 Up, Fresca, or even orange soda! Really anything with a little fizz and a citrusy flavor will do the trick.
16 Dumplings, 8 Servings | 20m prep time | 35m cook time
2 15 oz canned peaches, drained
2 8-ounce refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 ½ cups cup sprite or citrus soda
vanilla ice cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8×8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and thoroughly grease a 9×13 baking dish.
Open crescent dough and separate it into triangles.
Place one or two peach slices (depending on size) at the wide end of the dough triangle. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon and roll dough around the peach.
Once the dough is secure, move the dumpling to the baking dish. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
Melt the two sticks of butter in a large bowl and combine with the white sugar, brown sugar, and the remaining cinnamon until smooth.
Using a large spoon, pour the butter mixture over the dumplings.
Pour the Sprite around the dough avoiding the tops for a crispy crust to the dumplings.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the dough is just browning on top.
Serve warm and top with vanilla ice cream.
