Ingredients

  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 16 whole frozen peach slices
  • 1 ½ stick (3/4 cup) butter
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon, for sprinkling
  • 1 can sprite, 7-up, or mountain dew
  • extra butter, for the pan
  • whipped cream, for serving

Directions

  1. Butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Roll each peach slice in a crescent roll and then place in the pan. On her blog, Drummond recommends canned Pillsbury crescent rolls. She joked that you don’t have to get fancy when it comes to the rolls. “First, lay out the finest puffed pastry dough available to you. It should, if possible, be crafted by artisan hands and contain only cold butter from grass-fed cows, the finest chilled water from a pure mountain spring, salt from the Mediterranean Sea, and stone-milled flour. Or you can just use [Pillsbury crescent rolls],” said Drummond on The Pioneer Woman blog.

2. Melt the butter, then add sugar and stir lightly. If you’re a fan of Drummond, then you know that no recipe of hers is complete without butter—lots of butter. This recipe calls for 1 ½ sticks of butter.

3. Add vanilla, stir once or twice, then pour the mixture over the rolls and peaches in the pan.

4. Pour 3/4 of a can of Sprite around the edges and in the middle of the pan. Drummond says you can also use 7-Up, or Mountain Dew. However, Drummond usually uses Mountain Dew for the apple version of this recipe. “The apple version uses Mountain Dew. For the peach version, I decided to use Sprite. Call me crazy and unpredictable!” wrote Drummond on her blog.

5. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Take the peach dumplings out the oven and let them sit 10 minutes before serving.

Serving recommendation: Drummond recommends serving the peach dumplings with ice cream or whipped cream. You can also spoon some of the sauce from the pan and drizzle it over the top of the dumplings. It’s a winning combination your friends and family will surely enjoy.
