16 turnovers


  • 3 large peaches, peeled and pitted

  • 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent rolls

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle caffeinated citrus-flavored soda (such as Mountain Dew®)

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Cut peaches into 16 crescent-shaped slices.

  3. Unroll crescent roll dough on a flat work surface and separate into 16 triangles. Place a peach slice at the base of each triangle and roll up to enclose in the dough. Arrange turnovers in a baking pan.

  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Pour evenly over the turnovers in the baking pan. Pour citrus-flavored soda over the turnovers. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until turnovers are golden brown and liquid is bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes.
