Peach Dumplings

"What a delicious way to enjoy summer's bounty of peaches. This recipe encases ripe peaches, seasoned with brown sugar and warm spices, in butter-crisp puffed pastry. As they bake, the juices release to form a rich sauce. I served these golden beauties warm with homemade vanilla ice cream and sauce spooned over all. My daughter loved this dessert so much that she literally licked her bowl clean. :)"

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Onto a flat work surface lightly dusted with flour, unfold one sheet of puffed pastry. Lightly dust the surface of the pastry with flour. With a rolling pin, lightly roll until square spreads to the size of a 12" x 12" square. Slice into four evenly sized squares.
  • Remove skins from peaches, slice in half and remove pits. Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. The mixture will be crumbly.
  • Into one half of each peach, spoon 1 tbs. of the sugar & spices mixture into where the peach pit once was. Sandwich with other half of peach.
  • Place peach onto one puffed pastry square. Gently fold each corner to the top-center of each peach. Repeat with each peach.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  • With a pastry brush, brush melted butter over each pastry-covered peach. Then dust each with sugar. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar over each peach.
  • Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until lightly browned and crispy.

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
