During baking, the butter and sugar cause the dough and the fruit to transform into a heavenly dumpling

All you need is a roll of crescent roll dough, 2-3 peaches, almond extract, sugar and butter

Toss your peaches in boiling water for 45-60 seconds to make quick work of removing the peel

Cut peaches into large sections, about 1/4 of a peach

Separate dough triangles and slather with almond emulsion* or almond extract

*emulsions do not have alcohol and therefore pack a little more flavor since the alcohol in extracts tends to evaporate during cooking

Wrap the peach section in a dough triangle and place in a greased baking dish

Bring water, butter and sugar to a boil and cook for several minutes

1/2 cup vanilla sugar, sugar or brown sugar*

1 stick butter

1/2 cup water

8 tsp almond emulsion or extract

*vanilla sugar can be found at Whole Foods or specialty stores or you can make your own by placing a vanilla bean in a pint of sugar in a jar and letting it sit for a week.  You can also use brown sugar or white sugar with a dash of vanilla extract thrown in the water.
