Peach Dumplings

IMG_0196

I just spent a good portion of the day watching music videos from the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Ohmygosh, it all takes me back.

N*Sync, 98 degrees, Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Brandy, the list goes on!! I can’t handle the unfortunate hilarity. Since I grew up with no cable tv, I never got to see these music videos. So deprived was my childhood.

So for some reason, I was entranced into a freshman high school spell that sent me into a  2 1/2 hours 15 minute watching spree of said music videos.

Here are a few observations for you. You’re welcome:

Justin Timberlake is so much cooler now. {Though his chunky turtleneck in this video is pretty RAD.}

The Nick Lachey/Jessica Simpson relationship certainly didn’t last long {3 1/2 years!} despite their amazing reality show. *Please note my sarcastic use of the word amazing in the previous sentence.

The mother in me had a minor heart attack over Britney Spears’ school outfits in this video.

What ever happened to Jojo?

Lauryn Hill has such a pretty voice. Especially in Sister Act II.  PS- Jennifer Love Hewitt in this movie is prime.

I don’t care what you say, I will forever love this song.

Ah, memory lane. You were such a good way to blow my otherwise productive evening.

Anyways, I’ve been seeing recipes for these dessert dumplings float around for quite some time now, and I thought it was about time I made my own, without the soda in the bottom. Typically, the recipe calls for a can of mountain dew poured into the bottom to create a lemon-lime sauce in the bottom. I thought that sounded gross, so I made my own. Slightly different, but so delicious. It’s like a weird peach pie stuffed into crescent rolls. Warm, comforting and delicious. Especially delicious with ice cream, though I have yet to find something that ISN’T better with ice cream. But I digress.

Here are a couple of photos that I snapped when I was making these dumplings the other day. So so easy and so yummy! Feel free to scroll down to the bottom of the post for the printable recipe with more specific directions.

Have a great day 🙂
