    1. Definitely Teresa! But if you use fresh peaches, you’ll need to replace the peach juice from the can with juice or with a soda like 7-Up. Enjoy

  1. Can’t wait to try this it looks very easy and quick can put in oven when I get off work and it will be ready for TV time.

  2. Hi Holly! I could only find peaches in 100% juice, do I need to add anything to the juice to make it thicker? Sugar maybe? Or will the juice work ok by itself? Loving your recipes, thank you!

    1. I have only made this recipe as written but it should turn out fine Marcia. If anything, with the juice it may result in the sauce being thinner.

  3. I am happy to see all your recipes I have made a few and they are so good and now I’m trying the 4 ingredients peach cobbler thanks again

  4. The peach with the crescent rolls are tasty, however because of the liquid the bottom of the roll doesn’t cook and comes out wet, mushy and doughy. Any suggestion?

    1. Cindy, you’re right, the rolls should not be doughy underneath. You can cover with foil and cook for a few extra moments if the bottoms seem a little too doughy. Hope that helps!

  5. Hello there! I’m curious on the peach dumpling recipe, can real peaches be used instead of canned? Will they cook enough in this recipe? ☺️

  6. Been making this recipe for years be sure you roll n tuck your dumpling peach stays in better.My brother in law passed last year,n whenever I make it it makes me feel like he’s here with me smiling n making yummy sound effects,thank you

    1. Thank you for sharing your sweet memory Noelle. Food can create wonderful memories. Enjoy :)

  7. In follow up to one of the comments there are organic crescent rolls…Annie’s makes them at the store I buy from. Also I made this recipe with peaches in 100% juice…I didn’t see ‘light syrup’ only heavy syrup and juice so went the juice route and was a little worried but they turned out great! I did need to bake mine for 40 minutes and just sprinkled them with a spoon of sugar and a few dashes of cinnamon and it turned out great! Looks a little sad with just 8 going into the 8×8 casserole dish but they puff up quite a bit and it ends up covering just about the whole dish. Easy, yummy, and kid friendly. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi Vonetta! Yes. If you use fresh peaches, you’ll need to replace the peach juice from the can with juice or with a soda like 7-Up.

  8. hello there was looking at your lovely desert peach dumplins .. i am in australia.. can you explane what cressent rolls are, i have never heard of them or simular would love to make them

    1. Hello, they are a canned biscuit that is very popular here! Puff pastry would be a good substitution that I believe you have in Australia!

  9. Hi the peach dumpling dessert sounds great however I live in Australia and have not heard of the can of dough you are mentioning
    What could I use instead

  10. I made this last night and while hubby was sceptical at first, he and I both agree it is very yummy! I accidentally bought the sliced peaches in fruit juice vs the halves in syrup but it in no way impacted the tasty factor. Very delish dessert and so easy!

  11. I made these for an end of summer party. I used a cookie pan and made close to 50. I used frozen peaches (3 lbs) sprinkled with a little sugar to come to room temp. It gave off about 3 cups of juice. I wrapped each crescent in a whole peach slice. Yes they stuck out a little and got a little brown. I used 2 cups of the juice to pour over the batch. I did use the spice and sugar on top. I made my own dough. I used the extra peaches and juice to flavor some frozen whipped cream

  12. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe n the reviews. Positive m negative I always enjoyed reading your blogs. Keep up the good work.

      1. Holly – I have made “Apple dumplings ” for years , making my own caramel to pour over, (then Mtn. Dew). However, we are having a cooking class at church. Seven 8-10 year olds will be making dessert for about 50 people. We have only an hour so have to keep it simple! Your peach dumplings are perfect! How many crescent pkgs and cans of peaches? Thanks for your help.

        1. Each package of crescents contains 8 rolls. You will need about 7 rolls. The peaches will depend on the size of the can but you will need about 1/4 peach per roll so about 28 peach halves. Hope that helps.

  13. These recipes look simply delicious ! I can’t wait ti try them. Best of all they are quick and easy. So great for our busy lives.

  14. I just made them, used fresh peaches, and was enough juice to add to butter. Had them with vanilla ice-cream. Very tasty and not a lot of sugar.

  15. Okay, my review. I tried this because I thought it would be any easy thing for my 83 year old dad to do for himself as he loves peach cobbler. I felt like the amount of butter and syrup were a little heavy so I cut the butter to 3/4 of a stick and cut syrup to 1/2 cup. I always put lemon juice in my cobbler so I added 2 tsp making it a 5 ingredient recipe, sorry. IT WAS AMAZINGLY FABULOUS! If you are making ahead, you might want to use more liquid because it soaks it up over time and might leave you without drizzling syrup for your ice cream. Also, I see no reason you couldn’t just lay out half the crescent dough, top with peaches and end with the second layer of dough. It would be even better (and easy) if you used fresh peaches when in season. But the beauty of it really is that you can pull it off just about any time! I’m going to make him one and take it to him with the ingredients to make another!

  16. I am trying this recipe this weekend. I purchased the Del Monte peach halves smaller can as indicated. However, I could not find the light syrup only the heavy syrup. Do you feel I need to dilute the syrup in any way to achieve the same result? Or do you feel the heavy syrup is OK as is?

    1. Yes. If you use fresh peaches, you’ll need to replace the peach juice from the can with juice or with a soda like 7-Up.

  17. Holly, thank you and my family thanks you for your delicious Peach Dumpling recipe! It was a hit in our home. I want to make another for the 4th of July cookout, but my question is… can I do the same with canned apple’s? (Pie filling )
    Thank you

    1. This would work with apple pie filling however you won’t have the liquid to create the sauce. You can sub in apple juice or another sweet drink (such as Sprite). Enjoy!

  18. I made the peach cobbler so fast so easy and really really good.Thank you for the recipe. I will make others recipes of yours also. Do you have a cook book if so would Barnes and Noble have it ?

    Thanks, Evelyn

  19. Hi Holly,
    Will the Grands Crescent work just as well? It’s bake time is only 12/15 mins noticed your’s say 30 to 35 mins. Will it take much longer due to size ?

    1. Yes, the bake time is a little bit longer because they are touching and in sauce. The grands should work just fine. You’ll want to make sure the center is cooked before removing it from the oven.

  20. Your peach recipe says to use canned peach halves, and the instructions say to cut peaches in half. Cut the halves in half, or just use the halves as they are? Sounds yummy.

    1. You can purchase it premade however, to make your own, you can mix 1/2 cup sugar with about 2 tablespoons cinnamon.

    1. I use a smaller can, you will need 4 peach halves (each cut in half to total 8) and 2/3 cup of the liquid from the can.

  21. Do you have a favorite slow cooker cassarole that can be prepared directly from a grocery bag…in a hotel room? Sounds wierd, I know! But I am going to a picnic out-of-state and won’t have use of a kitchen. Just a mini fridge and outlet. Can you help?


  22. most bread machines have-a recipe to make crescent rolls. I think it is mix rise then roll out the rolls.

    1. You can try a lemon lime soda (like 7-Up) or another similar sweetened drink. Please note that it will change the flavor but should still be delicious.

    2. You can make a simple sugar too! Simple syrup is two things: sugar and water. The ratio is also simple: 2 to 1, sugar to water.

  23. They look so yummy. I just don’t like the crescent rolls, because of chemical additives. Have you ever seen organic crescent rolls?

    1. I haven’t seen Organic crescent rolls (although I haven’t looked for them). You could certainly try it with a defrosted bread dough.

    2. Almost every bread machine has a recipe for home made crescent dough. It may just be the mixing and rising part and you roll them out.

        1. Hi Joann, thanks! The rolls should not be sticky dough underneath. You can cover with foil and cook for a few extra moments if the bottoms seem a little too doughy.

  24. Love crescent rolls for things like this! These look so good and I cannot wait for all the juicy peaches come summertime! (even though these don’t require fresh, there is nothing like a fresh peach!)

    1. I have peaches from The Peach Truck in my freezer.. Any suggestions as to how to substitute them for the canned peaches?

      1. If you thaw the peaches with sugar on them, the sugar draws out the peach juice. This, also, works on strawberries. Use enough sugar so that the juice will be as sweet as you would like. I use to freeze fresh, sliced peaches & this is what I would do so that we would have peach shortcake in the cold winter months.
