We have all seen the Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings floating around the net and we’ve probably all made these at one time or another. My peeps love them and one of their aunts make them for the crowd when requested.
These are along the same lines but just a tad different – using fresh peaches. One of the sons-in-law loves peach anything – especially peach ice cream so I know he would love these. I just may have to make him a batch and send them his way! Especially while the peaches are still in season.
4 medium size peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into 4 slices each (each peach will equal 4 pieces for a total of 16)
2 (8 oz) cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 can mountain dew or sprite will work just as well
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Separate the crescent rolls into triangle. Roll ne peach slice in each crescent roll covering as much of the peach as possible and place in a 9’x13′ baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Melt the butter and mix in the sugar and vanilla. pour evenly over the cute little crescent bundles. Then sprinkle them evenly with the cinnamon. Pour the soda around the edges of the rolls, not over the tops so the cinnamon remains on top. You could reverse this process by pouring the soda on first then sprinkling on the cinnamon, I guess. Makes more sense to me!
Bake, uncovered, for approx. 40 minutes until golden brown. These would be so good served with a scoop of homemade peach ice cream. Would that be considered peach overload?? Or you could just stick with a good old vanilla ice cream. Never go wrong with vanilla.
See how you like these with peaches. Or will the apple still be your favorite? Have a great and blessed day!
