I got a tip from  Earla Tate this was a really good recipe. It’s comes from the Pioneer Woman.

Peach Dumplings

2 cans Crescent Rolls

16 whole frozen peach slices

1-1/2 stick (3/4 cup) butter

1-1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Ground cinnamon, for sprinkling

1 can Sprite, 7-Up or Mountain Dew

Extra butter for the pan

Whipped cream for serving

Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Roll each peach slice in a crescent roll. Place in the pan.

Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir once or twice, then pour the entire mixture over the rolls/peaches in the pan.

Pour 3/4 of the can of Sprite around the edges and in the middle of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350° for 40 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let sit 10 minutes before serving. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.
