2mediumpeaches, cut into 4 wedges, pit removed(Canned peaches work, too! See Recipe Notes)
8ouncerefrigerated Pillsbury crescent roll dough
1/2cup(1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4cupcitrus 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.
