This week's Sunday Supper event is SUMMER'S BEST POTLUCK DISHES and is hosted by T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbly. I made these dumplings last summer for a family grill out (which is like feeding a small army anyways) and thought it would be the perfect recipe to share with y'all today for the summer potluck event.

So it literally could not be written in the stars any clearer than this recipe that Ree Drummond and I should be best friends. I love all of her recipes and she never fails me. However, I decided to switch up her apple dumplings with peaches - and then later noticed the side note where she suggests peach, pear or apricots would work well. I am the worst at actually reading through my cookbooks.

Anyways, I was going through my blog feed and saw Peach Dumplings pop up and noticed they were from Ree and decided it's totally fate that she would post her adaptation so close to when I had planned on posting the adaptation of her original recipe. However, in her adaptation, she used frozen peaches and Sprite, whereas I used fresh peaches and Mountain Dew. I'm definitely taking a page from her book (hah, puns!) and using frozen peaches next time because the fresh peaches were a pain in the backside to deal with.

Ree suggested serving it up with vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. We did cinnamon bun ice cream and I have to say - GO THAT ROUTE!! The whole thing is heaven in your mouth. By far, these dumplings are one of my all-time favorite desserts and recipes!

(Print)
What you need:
  • 2 fresh peaches --or-- 16 frozen peach slices
  • 2 cans (8 oz.) crescent rolls
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 can (12 oz.) Mountain Dew 
  • Ground cinnamon, to taste
  • Ice cream for serving
Directions:
  1. Prepare a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray - I used my 9x13".
  2. Peel peaches, remove the pit, and slice into 8 slices each --or-- get your 16 slices of frozen peaches out. See why I want to go the frozen route next time?!
  3. Take one crescent triangle and place a slice of peach on the wide end and roll up. Place in casserole dish, seam-side down. Repeat with remaining triangles and peaches.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.
  5. Add sugar and vanilla and stir to combine - the sugar does not need to dissolve completely.
  6. Pour the buttery sugar mixture over the rolls in the casserole dish.
  7. Crack open your can of Mountain Dew and poor it over the top of the rolls.
  8. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon to your liking.
  9. Bake at 350* for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or two - the syrup at the bottom of the pan is great for drizzling over the top.
