These Easy Peach Dumplings are soft and gooey on the bottom, but crispy on top, and taste like peach cobbler. Crazy easy and ridiculously delicious!
I’m not ashamed to admit that I made these peach dumplings three days in a row.
I saw fresh peaches at the market last week! Like…whaaat? I don’t usually see those until May. So I snatched several up and made my favorite Sour Cream Peach Pecan Pie and these Easy Peach Dumplings.
Shortly after making my Country Apple Dumplings last year, someone suggested using peaches, too. I wasted no time, altering a few other ingredients, and have made them about 400 times since then.
I’ve been known to serve them for breakfast sometimes, but clearly these are a dessert. A scoop of ice cream, while not at all necessary, puts it over the top!
Not kidding when I tell you this dish will change your dessert life. You only need a handful of simple ingredients (most of which I bet you have in your pantry already) and 15 minutes (tops!) to put it all together. Then you sit back and enjoy the amazing smell that engulfs your house as they bake.
Can I use canned peaches instead of fresh?
Yep! I’ve used canned peaches many times, because obviously fresh peaches are impossible to find in the winter time. They break down a little more, but it’s negligible and just as good! And even easier, because there’s no peeling.
Why the soda?
The soda adds necessary carbonation – do not eliminate it, or these will not turn out right. By pouring it around the edges of the pan, it creates moisture to cook the dumplings and an amazing crust on the crescent rolls while baking. It also boils down and contributes to the gooey sauce that will make your heart skip a beat.
7-Up, Sprite, or Mountain Dew can be used instead of Fresca, but Fresca gives these a slight citrus-y flavor to the biscuits. Plus Fresca has zero calories, so the alternatives will tack on some.

Easy Peach Dumplings
- 2 medium peaches, cut into 4 wedges, pit removed (Canned peaches work, too! See Recipe Notes)
- 8 ounce refrigerated Pillsbury crescent roll dough
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup citrus Fresca soda
- vanilla ice cream, for serving
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 8x8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles.
- Place a peach wedge near the small end of the dough triangle, then roll up. Pinch the ends to seal. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
- In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add in the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon; stir until combined and smooth.
- Drizzle butter mixture over the dough.
- Pour the Fresca to the sides of the dumplings (not on top!) so a nice crust is formed while baking.
- Bake until golden brown and peaches are tender when pierced with a fork, about 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes.
- Serve for dessert with some vanilla ice cream or a very decadent breakfast!
- I don’t think fresh peaches need to be peeled for these - their skin seems to break down and get perfectly tender from baking, but feel free to peel them if you want. If using canned peaches, you’ll want a 29 ounce can of Halves.
- 7-Up, Sprite, or Mountain Dew can be used instead of Fresca, but Fresca gives these a slight citrus-y flavor to the biscuits. Plus Fresca has zero calories, so the alternatives will tack on some.
- Need to feed more than 4 people? No problem. Just double all the ingredients and bake in a 9x13 pan.
Reader Questions and Reviews
This sounds great and I can hardly wait to taste it. I plan to sub in Canada Dry ginger ale for the Fresca since I have that on hand and it’s not as sweet.
OMG. These were…incredible. And so easy!! New favorite dessert. Thank you for sharing!!
Got these in the oven now. The only soda i had was squirt. Hope it cures my late night sweet tooth.
I had some fresh peaches from the farmer’s market, and this recipe sounded easy so I had to try it. W couldn’t believe how nice it turned out, in appearance as well as flavor and texture! My husband loved it also.
Is there any alternative for the carbonated soda? My son and I are both allergic to carbonated beverages.
So delicious and easy… we like Mtn Dew over sprite however both are raved about
I discovered you on TikTok yesterday and made these last night. Deeeeeelicious! I’m going to try it will tart apples and a touch of real lemon juice mixed into the soda. Thank you!
This recipe does not disappoint. We all loved it and I plan on making it many more times. My new favourite dessert.
I wanted to try this recipe as soon as I saw it. Tonight I made it with peaches I’d frozen from last year. It was as delicious as it looks and very easy to make! I will make and serve again.
I have made this recipe many times and have lots of requests from others for it. I use an orange soda and it pairs nicely with the peach.
I made these very simple “dumplings” last night. OMG, they were to die for. Could be the best dessert I have ever made. Seriously. The fresh peach inside was thoroughly cooked and the weird ingredient of Fresca actually worked out. I only used 1/2 cup of Fresca because adding it just seemed so weird. Highly recommend this recipe.
I have made my own little twist with these adding a Nutella drizzle with some powdered sugar on them once they are out of the oven! It actually gives them a really nice chocolatey flavour without taking away from the peach on the inside. I do add the cinnamon drizzle on them before baking them, and it just adds to the flavour even more. Instead of a citrus soda I use peach flavoured carbonated water so it doesn’t take away from the overall flavour of the dish, while also adding to that lovely peach flavour you get from the dessert overall. Super tasty treat!!
I’ve made this twice in ten days. My husband said it’s his favorite dessert
This is the best recipe – so easy and almost no costs. It was delicious!!!
Oh my word! My husband said these are even better than the apple dumplings. Super easy and super good!
so easy and tastes great
Do I need to peel the peaches?
My family and I loved this so much! A million attempts on others and this one was one of the easiest and by far best tasting! Thank you for sharing!
These are delicious! We use frozen peach slices when peaches are out of season. Fresh Granny Smith apples, too!
I made these today. So easy and they’re delicious!
Love Love Love big peach cobbler flavor without all the work
I love this recipe
Seriously delicious and easy!!! Thank you! Made with sprite! It’s taking all my will power to not eat the whole pan!
Making a second doubled batch the next night! Unheard of in my house!
My new favorite peach dessert and so easy!
Love love love
I made these peach dumplings today. So delicious and easy !
This recipe was great. My three children and their families loved it. I made a double recipe and they are asking me to make more. Thank you.
I see absolutely NO good reason why these gems CAN’T be served for breakfast! Fruit and pastry…really! Like a grownup pop tart. OMG!
Scrumptious! I’ve made peach dumplings in the past but didn’t use brown sugar. The brown sugar took to another level. I did add one tsp of vanilla extract. AND I had a little leftover sweet potato pie batter. I put some in two of the crescent rolls. Awwwsome!
I used ginger ale as it was all i had and it still tastes fantastic!! This recipe is a game changer in my home and a HIT at potlucks!! Thanks!!
I don’t have any citrus soda. How are they without?
Hi Patsy! You need the carbonation from the soda for these to turn out. If you have the time, I do explain it in the article. Thanks!
I accidentally purchased bisquits, made the dumplings using biscuits… They were delicious. anyway! I made a second double batch to give to a good neighbor, using the bisquits again!!! They were a huge hit again! Thank You for the delicious,simple recipe!
Curious if you think it would work to cook these dumplings on a grill? Thanks!
I have made these with apples and peaches for years, they are wonderful.
When a recipe ingredients is in cups, what six cup is used?
I can’t wait to try these. Been making the apple dumplings for years. Just never thought about trying peaches! (I’m not creative in any way.)
What about frozen peaches?
Just put a batch in oven. See how they turn out. Made sure I have vanilla ice cream and also whipped cream. Eaters choice.
These are definitely on my “make soon” list! Thanks!
Can you use pie dough instead of crescent rolls?
You probably could, but the temperature and time would probably need to be adjusted and I can’t give proper instructions, since I’ve never tried it that way.
This recipe is terrific!!
Can I use lemonade
Not with optimal results. You need some type of carbonation to achieve the crispy exterior.
