Peach Dumplings with Crescent Rolls...

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Peach dumplings made with crescent rolls are an easy and delicious dessert for summer!

One of the very first recipes I shared on my blog was for Apple Dumplings.  They were and still are a very popular recipe here on the blog, even if the photos are horrible!  I have made the recipe many times and they are so delicious; I can see why they are popular.  I love using crescent rolls for many recipes, especially desserts.  Crescent rolls are so easy to use! And they make any recipe delicious. 
I made the apple dumplings recipe again last week, only I used peaches and the recipe was amazing.  I think you're going to love it too!  


Last week PEACHES were on sale and I thought,
 "Why not switch out the apples for peaches?" 

I made the peach dumplings to take with me to a get-together with a few church friends and they were DELICIOUS!  This recipe came out great with the peaches.  AND the good news is I also tried the recipe with canned peaches and they were DELICIOUS...which is good because you can't purchase fresh peaches year-round.  (I used peaches packed in pear juice to keep the calories down.)

Peach Dumplings


  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 peaches
  • cinnamon and sugar mixture
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 4 oz. Mountain Dew


Unroll the crescent rolls and divide into pieces.
Slice the peaches and lay one to two pieces on the "wide" end of each crescent roll.
Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.
Starting at the wide end, begin rolling each crescent roll up and place in a 9 X 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Sprinkle a little more cinnamon/sugar on top of the crescent rolls.
Melt the butter and pour over the crescent rolls, followed by the Mountain Dew. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown.

Lay one to two peach slices on top of the crescent roll.  Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar...

Place one or two peaches on top of a crescent roll and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar before rolling up.

Place in a baking dish.  Pour the melted butter on top followed by the soda...

These are my favorite baking dishes.  
They're great for almost everything you need to bake!

  4. Can I ask why you use Mt. Dew? It is so bad for you. Does it do something special for the recipe? Can you omit it?

    1. I make a recipe similar to this using canned apples wrapped in flour tortillas with no mountain dew. I'm curious, like you, as to the reason...

    2. You can use ANY lemon-lime carbonated (non-diet)soft drink, it doesn't have to be Mountain Dew. The lemon lime goes with the fruit, and the carbonation helps to cook the bottom of the dumplings so they aren't doughy and don't burn as the liquid evaporates.

  5. Sigh. I love this recipe and have never thought to use apples.

  6. If I can remember to buy crescent rolls, I'll be making these this weekend!
