Easy Peach Dumplings

Do you have an overabundance of peaches like I do right now and need recipes to use them up?  This can be thrown together in no time at all and it's simply one of the best desserts you will ever taste.
Of course, I missed taking pics of a few steps.  Quarter 4 large ripe peaches.  Wrap each quarter in a crescent roll or pie dough wedge.  Place them seam side down in a greased 8X8 pan.

  • 1 can crescent rolls or cut pie dough into triangles
  • 3/4 stick butter
  • ¾ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
  • 3/4 C. orange juice
  • 4 fresh peaches
Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the sugar, stir until the sugar melts. Pour this mixture over the dumplings.  Pour the orange juice around the edges.  Sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.

Bake them at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until they are golden brown.

The juice thickens as these cook.

Serve them warm in a pool of the syrup.  These would be great with vanilla ice cream but since I served them for breakfast, I thought that would be a bit of an overkill!
