    1 hr


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the butter flavored shortening using your hands or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the ice water over the dough, and stir until the mixture comes together. Knead the dough briefly, then divide into 6 pieces.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll out each piece of dough into a thin circle. Place two peach halves together, and wrap in each circle of dough, sealing at the top. Place the dumplings onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake dumplings for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. While the dumplings are baking, make the sauce. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, egg, nutmeg, vanilla and salt using an electric mixer on low speed. Gradually mix in the confectioners' sugar. Spoon over warm dumplings.

These were good with ice cream, but by themselves they were just dough and peach. If I make these again I will try adding some spices and a little sugar inside the dough.

i would never make this again. the dough was so crumbly I couldn't get it around the peaches. the peaches then fell apart in the oven so it turned out more like a peach crumble or cobbler. i added sugar to the peaches but it still tasted like dough and cooked peach. and in the sauce i couldn't get the butter to mix with everything else so it was really lumped and looked terrible.

This is a very good recipe. I only ended up using half a peach in each dumpling. The dough didn't want to cooperate when I tried to hold slippery peach halves together and wrap the dough up and over. I am really rating the dumplings only. I could not use the hard sauce recipe as I have a real problem with using raw eggs in any recipe. I made a sauce using peach schnapps instead and it worked well.

These dumplings are very good. Love the dough. Gave a four because of the egg. I did put the sauce on the dumpings while still pretty warm hoping this would take care of the raw egg , even still my husband and I ate them up

i did one cup wheat flour and one cup all-purpose flour so it would be a little better for you

There was a review that stated that without the sauce it was just dough and peach...I AGREE!! Here is an this site for " grilled peaches with berry sauce" actually came in an email to me from allrecipes..instead of wrapping the peaches in foil, wrap them in the dough in this recipe and bake according to the directions in the dough recipe to ensure that the dough gets done. This was TRULY AMAZING...I topped with the hard sauce, and a little more of the berry sauce over the hard sauce...pretty and delish!!

These were very tasty! However, for 6 smallish peaches, I needed more dough. I couldn't even cover them completely, let alone pinch them together at the top. Next time I will double the recipe for the dough, but only use 8 peaches.
