Peach Whirligigs

Recipe by  

"My mother-in-law makes this yummy dish every summer when peaches are in season. When my husband and I got married I just had to have the recipe to carry on the tradition! In autumn, replace the peaches with apples and you have a delicious fall dessert as well!"

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In large saucepan over medium heat, combine peaches, water, 1 1/2 cups sugar and cornstarch. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil for one minute, then reduce heat to low to keep warm.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together baking mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, melted margarine and milk to form a soft dough. Remove to floured surface and knead 8 to 10 times. Roll out into a 9 inch square.
  4. Spread softened margarine over dough. Combine 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon, and sprinkle mixture over dough. Roll dough into a log shape and cut into 6 - 1 1/2 inch slices. Pour hot peach mixture into an 8x8 inch baking dish. Place roll slices, cut side up, on top of peach mixture.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, until puffed and golden. Serve warm.

I thought this one was too sweet, I think next time I will try it with apples, a little brown sugar and spices, insted of the sweet sweet sauce

This is a great recipe. I added some things - a tsp of vanilla to the biscuit mix, used brown sugar and cinnamon instead of white sugar and cinnamon and added walnuts to the apple mixture when I poured it into the pan. Turned out great!

My family flipped over these! I changed the number of servings to 8 and then made a couple of small other changes after reading the reviews and needing to use what I had on hand. I used butter in place of the margarine, decreased the water to 2 cups, decreased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups (and that amount was plenty!), used 3 TBS of cornstarch and added a good dash of cinnamon to the peach mixture. I also used half and half in place of milk. These are wonderful! The dough is easy to work with, the recipe if fast to throw together and the combination of flavors and textures is perfect. My family can not wait for me to make them again. Thanks for sharing!!

Scrumptious- the aroma filled the house. The syrup you make with the peaches is very versatile- use it when making peach pie!

I love peaches and this dessert just gave me another reason to eat more of them! I used frozen (thawed) peaches because it's only April, and it still tasted amazing. I can't wait to make this again when peaches are in season!

Looked great and simple to make. I cut the rolls into smaller slices so there was more of them. They were the best part. There was alittle too much liquid in the bottom of the pan though.

This is so good! My 2-year-old even likes it!
