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

peach dumpling 1

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


It will slide right off


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


Pour over dumplings in baking dish
