  • oven


  • 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)


  • 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.


  • 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.
