FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Should you peel the peaches for peach dumplings?

You can use peeled peaches or unpeeled peaches, that is a personal preference. They soften as they bake. To peel peaches properly, add the peaches to boiling water for about 10-20 seconds to loosen the skin then place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Once cooled, use a pairing knife and gently peel away the skin, which should come off easily.

What does the soda do?

It adds sweetness to the overall dish but also thickens as it cooks down to help make a delicious sauce. You can use any lemon-lime soda you like (Sprite, 7-Up or even Mountain Dew).

What do you serve with dumplings?

We like to serve these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

Can I just used canned peaches?

Yes you can. Look for the can that shows larger peach slices. This recipe can also be doubled and baked in a 9×13-inch baking pan.

How do you store leftover peach dumplings?

Leftovers should be stored in a lidded container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • fresh peaches – See my FAQ (frequently asked questions) above on peeling if that is your preference but it’s not absolutely necessary as the skin will soften as it bakes.
  • crescent rolls – you can use the store brand – it doesn’t have to be Pillsbury. It’s best to use the rolls instead of the crescent sheet but that will work too. You’ll just have to do some cutting.
  • salted butter – this doesn’t make it salty – it just helps to cut the overall sweetness a little bit.
  • sugar – I have not tried this with a substitute but I would think it would work.
  • ground cinnamon – if you aren’t a fan of cinnamon, just leave it out. It really goes so well with the peaches though.
  • flour – this is going to help thicken the sauce mixture.
  • lemon lime soda – it can be any of your favorite lemon lime sodas (Mountain Dew also works great with this!)
Ingredients needed: peaches, crescent rolls, salted butter, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, flour and lemon lime soda.

Notes

  • This recipe can easily be doubled, just use a 9″x 13″ baking pan.
  • You can use peeled peaches or unpeeled peaches, that is a personal preference. It softened as it bakes. To peel peaches properly, add the peaches to boiling water for about 10-20 seconds to loosen the skin then place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Once cooled, use a pairing knife and gently peel away the skin, which should come off easily.
  • In addition, you could used canned sliced peaches for this as well. 
  • You can use any type of lemon-lime soda the you like, I used Sprite for this recipe.
  • When pouring the soda over the peach dumplings, try to stick to the edges and middle and not pour directly over the dumplings themselves.
  • This is “self saucing”. It will come out with a delicious thickened sauce at the end that you serve with the dumplings themselves.
