and last but not least, peaches.

We had some friends share their Mac’s Pride Peaches with us from McLeod Farms,

family owned and operated since 1916, located in McBee, South Carolina.

These peaches are the ‘Big Red’ variety, available from mid-to-late August,

and are sweet and juicy as well as big and red, like their namesake.

As you’ve already guessed from the ingredient list, this is not a low calorie recipe,

but my rationale is that peach season comes around but once a year!

I adapted the original recipe that called for

1 cup butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar, which I reduced to 3/4 cup butter

and 1 cup of sugar. To reduce calories further,

use reduced fat crescent rolls and substitute SPLENDA® sugar blend.

You can also use diet ginger ale.

Quick and Easy Peach Dumplings

Makes 16 dumplings

Ingredients

2 cans Crescent Rolls

16 peach slices (if your peaches are small, use 2 peach slices per crescent roll triangle or 32 slices)

3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2/3 of a 12 oz. can Ginger Ale (or lemon/lime soda of choice)

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Slice peaches so you have 16 large slices. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles.

Starting at the largest end, roll a peach slice in a crescent roll triangle and place in baking dish.

Don’t worry if your peach slice isn’t completely covered by dough.

Melt butter in microwave safe bowl or Pyrex measuring cup.

Add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract, stirring well to combine.

Pour over top of the peach dumplings.

Pour 2/3 of a can of ginger ale between the dumplings and along edge of pan

so the sugar / butter mixture stays on top of dumplings.

Equipment

  • oven

Ingredients

  • 2 cans Crescent Rolls
  • 16 fresh peach slices (if your peaches are small, use 2 peach slices per crescent roll triangle or 32 slices)
  • 3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks or 12 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 12 oz. can Ginger Ale  (or citrus soda of choice)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Slice peaches so you have 16 large slices. 
  • Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles.
  • Roll a peach slice in a crescent roll triangle starting at the largest end and place in baking dish. Don’t worry if your peach slice isn’t completely covered by dough.
  • Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl or large Pyrex measuring cup. 
  • Add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract, stirring well to combine.
  • Pour over the top of peach dumplings.
  • Pour 2/3 of a can of ginger ale between the dumplings and along edge of pan so the sugar/butter mixture stays on top of dumplings.
  • Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with ice cream, spooning some of the sauce mixture from the pan over the top.

Notes

  • This is not a low calorie recipe, which will be obvious by the ingredients. The original recipe calls for 1 cup butter (2 sticks) and 1 1/2 cups sugar. I cut back to 1 cup sugar, (using half brown, half white) and 3/4 cup butter (12 tablespoons). To reduce calories further, use reduced fat crescent rolls and substitute SPLENDA® sugar blend. You can also use diet ginger ale.
  • Use Granny Smith apple slices for a delicious variation when peaches aren't in season.

 

Not a peach fan? . . . I guess we can still be friends. :)

Substitute apples for peaches, using your favorite baking apple variety

such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, Jonathan or Honeycrisp.

    They look delicious. I have never seen them made with the crescent rolls. Yummy. We just made a few jars of peach preserves. Summer is almost over for these.

    Thanks and YUM! We all need easy desserts as we say goodbye to summer.

    I’ve made the apple version, Mary, but never tried the peach 🍑 one. I can practically smell the heavenly scent in my kitchen right now! Thanks for your recipe revision and substitutions. Hope you have a 🍑-y week! 😊

  6. August 23, 2021 at 9:06 am

    I have a similar recipe Mary that calls for almonds and almond extract, so good! And dangerously easy just like yours! I’m ready for fall but not ready to say goodbye to summer produce…

    I have been making this recipe for years but using chopped apples and grand biscuits (rolled out). Have used peaches, also. It is a delicious and easy recipe.

    Holy cow. I thought my last batch of peaches I bought would be it for summer, but now I’m adding all the missing ingredients to my grocery list. These look dangerously good. Mr. P is not a peach eater, but these could change his mind and save me from eating them all.

  10. August 23, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Well this is next on my list. Sweet man enjoys bringing home peaches. I have made peach pies, peach crisps and peach tarts… but NO Peach Dumplings. He’s off to find more so he can try Mary’s Peach Dumplings!
    Have a lovely week my friend!

  11. August 23, 2021 at 9:43 am

    I’ve done the apples and they are delicious!! Now I’ll try the peach!! Thanks for the recipe!! 🍑🍑🍑🍑

  12. August 23, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Will frozen peaches (thawed) work?

    • August 23, 2021 at 10:00 am

      Hi Ellen, Yes :)

    Thank you for the recipe – I just got some peaches from our favorite road side stand, now I have a plan to use them!
    So looking forward to moving past the summer heat🔥!

  14. August 23, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Thank you for sharing. I must try these.

  15. August 23, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    I have made these with apples and used a can of Mountain Dew vs ginger ale. Anxious to try this recipe. Looks wonderful!

    My mouth is watering! I am pinning and printing this recipe to take up north with me, but now is the hard choice to make this or that wonderful chocolate zucchini bread recipe! Oh, gosh, I may have to make both, hehe! Thanks Mary!

  19. August 24, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Mary, this is a favorite recipe that my Mother used often. I also love it using sweet potatoes, especially for fall! Yum!

  20. August 24, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    Mary, this is a terrific idea! I’m going to print this out and plan to make it soon. Thanks for sharing. We love peaches!

    When using the apples or the peaches, do both need to be peeled???

    • September 5, 2021 at 12:18 pm

      It’s personal preference. I prefer them peeled :)
