This recipe originally uses apples, but with peach season in full swing here in the Ozarks, these sweet little tangy fruits made the perfect turnovers. Add a dash of cinnamon and pair with homemade vanilla ice cream and your friends and family will be begging for more.

  • Cut peaches into 16 crescent-shaped slices.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Oh my! This is so good! I saw that Pioneer Woman used frozen peaches in this type of recipe so I thought I would try it too. It turned out great! So easy and no one would guess it's just crescent rolls! Delicious and decadent topped with vanilla ice cream. Read More

The IDEA of this recipe is great! Simple and yummy. However it was WAY too sweet and produced far too much goo. I would suggest half the butter and sugar. Second I'm not sure about the purpose of the soda. Perhaps to keep from getting dried out in baking? Anyway it just kept the bottom of the rolls from browning and they were gooey thus making everyone think they were not fully baked. My husband (who LOVES SWEETS) said they were just way too sweet. With modifications they are delicious and easy. Read More

It was great! Will try it next time with apples. I didn't add the Mountain Dew thanks to another reviewer and liked it without. Read More

My family LOVED these even my 9 year old “who doesn’t like peaches” Here are my modifications: No soda, only used 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) and 3/4 sugar, and the vanilla. Fresh peaches create their own juice also if your peaches taste sweet you don’t need the 1 1/2 cups of sugar in my opinion. Read More
