What You Need To Make This Peach Dumplings Recipe?
Peaches: We’re using canned peaches for this recipe because they are available all year round and have a guaranteed sweetness. The syrup in the can also adds a layer of flavor to the dumplings.
Crescent Roll Dough: To save time and effort we’ll be using premade crescent roll dough, which gives the dumplings a buttery and flaky texture.
Butter: For greasing the baking dish and enhancing the taste of the dough we’ll be using butter. It adds a touch of decadence to the dumplings.
Light Brown Sugar: To create a caramel sauce that coats the dumplings we’ll be using brown sugar. Its molasses content gives it a flavor.
Granulated Sugar and Cinnamon: The magical combination of granulated sugar and cinnamon is what we sprinkle on the peaches before wrapping them in the dough. The sugar adds sweetness while cinnamon adds warmth and depth of flavor.
Lemon-Lime Soda: Now for the secret ingredient – lemon-lime soda! It adds a subtle citrusy taste and also helps create a syrupy sauce as the dumplings bake.
Vanilla Ice Cream: Finally don’t forget to serve these dumplings with some vanilla ice cream for an extra delightful treat! Pairing these dumplings with a generous scoop of velvety vanilla ice cream offers a delightful interplay of temperatures and textures. The subtle notes of vanilla beautifully enhance the sweetness of the peach.
Steps To Make Peach Dumplings:
Step 1: Begin by preheating your oven to a cozy 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use some butter to lovingly grease a 9×13 baking dish, preparing it for the delightful treat it’s about to cradle.
Step 2: Now, get those tubes of crescent roll dough open. Tear the dough into triangle pieces and let’s start the magic. Place a slice or two of those succulent canned peaches at the broader end of the dough triangle. Sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mix for a little sweet-spice kick.
Step 3: Roll that dough around the peach slice, making sure to secure the end by pinching or pressing it. Once your little dumpling is all wrapped up, lay it to rest in the baking dish. Repeat this process until you’re out of dough and peaches.
Step 4: In the microwave, gently melt your butter in a bowl. Pour the golden melted goodness all over your waiting dumplings. Crack open that can of lemon-lime soda and lovingly pour it around the dumplings. Make sure to avoid pouring directly on top of the dumplings to maintain that crisp top layer.
Step 5: Pop your dish into the oven and bake these babies for 30 to 35 minutes. You’re waiting for the dough to get a nice golden blush.
Step 6: Once done, serve these gorgeous Peachy Peach Dumplings warm, each with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream. Now, sit back and enjoy every bite of this comfort-filled dessert!
When making these Peachy Peach Dumplings, strive to pour the lemon-lime soda around the dumplings and not directly over them. The dumplings will absorb the soda for that syrupy sauce during baking and guarantee the tops will remain dry enough, making beautifully golden and slightly crisp dumplings. This also helps achieve that perfect balance of textures – soft and sweet inside with a slightly crunchy exterior.
