The recipe for these 10-minute peach dumplings is one of those throw it together in five-minutes-or-less and have dessert ready to go by the end of dinner kind of desserts. It’s so simple, you’ve probably already got all of the ingredients in your very own kitchen. The secret: those crescent rolls* you buy in a tube in the refrigerated section of your grocery store! They can also be made vegan, with a few simple tweaks. Oh, and they’ve got a top secret ingredient you’d probably never expect too. But you’ll just have to read on to get the details. 😉
*FUN FACT: Did you know that Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are actually vegan? How great is that!?
Oh, and let’s not forget the versatility of this amazing dessert: you can easily substitute the peaches for apple slices – which we plan to do often in the fall. Dumplings are dumplings. Sugary, delicious, and amazing filled with just about any fruit. Fresh or frozen fruit works SO well here too.
We even made a little video to show you just how easy these peach dumplings are to make:

- Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with vegan butter. Roll one to two peach slices in one pre-portioned crescent roll. Place in the pan.
- Melt butter, then add sugar and gently stir. Add vanilla, stir gently, then pour the entire mixture over the peach-filled rolls in the pan. Pour about 3/4 of the can of Sprite around the edges and in the middle of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to sit 10 minutes before serving.
- When serving, be sure to scoop up some of the extra sweet sauce that's pooled at the bottom and pour it over the top of each dessert. You can also top with whipped cream, vegan cool whip, or ice cream, because, why not!?
*If you want to keep this recipe vegan, use vegan butter and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are actually vegan!

Cuisine dumplings, vegan
So simple and delicious!
Note: This recipe is made to serve about 8, but since we’re a small bunch, I tend to cut this recipe in half, using just one tube of crescent rolls, making 8 small dumplings, rather than 16 (what two cans of crescent rolls would make).
How good does that look?
And definitely serve these beauties warm. The peach dumplings are SO good in a bowl topped with ice cream. (Dairy-free for us!)
Happy dumpling making!
