Makes 16 Dumplings


2 cans Crescent Rolls

16 peach slices (if your peaches are small, use 2 peach slices per crescent roll triangle or 32 slices)

3/4 cup butter (12 tablespoons)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2/3 of a 12 oz. can Ginger Ale (or citrus soda of choice)


Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Slice peaches so you have 16 large slices. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll a peach slice in a crescent roll triangle starting at the largest end and place in baking dish. Don’t worry if your peach slice isn’t completely covered by dough.

Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl or large Pyrex measuring cup. Add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract, stirring well to combine. Pour over the top of peach dumplings. Pour 2/3 of a can of ginger ale between the dumplings and along edge of pan so the sugar/butter mixture stays on top of dumplings. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with ice cream, spooning  some of the sauce mixture from the pan over the top.


This is not a low calorie recipe, which will be obvious when you taste these delicious dumplings. The original recipe calls for 1 cup butter (2 sticks) and 1 1/2 cups sugar. I cut back to 1 cup sugar, (using half brown, half white) and 3/4 cup butter (12 tablespoons). To reduce calories further, use reduced fat crescent rolls and substitute SPLENDA® sugar blend. You can also use diet ginger ale.

Use Granny Smith apple slices for a delicious variation when peaches aren't in season.
