For all the things that you don't do or that you do that can drive me crazy, I am thankful for ALL that you do for our kids and for me. Happy Father's Day, David!!
And a Happy Father's Day to all the dads, granddads, uncles and men who are role models and who give love to the little people in your lives.
On your day, let’s eat dessert (your favorite part of the meal – ha!). These peach dumplings (recipe from Dori Sanders and featured in Southern Living) are a fun alternative to peach pie and perfect during summer months with delicious, juicy fresh peaches.
1. 1 package (14.1 oz) refrigerated pie crusts
2. 4 peaches, peeled and sliced (or 20 oz frozen, slice peaches), approximately 2 cups
3. ½ c sugar
4. ¼ butter, melted
5. 1/8 t ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350.
Unroll piecrusts on a lightly floured surface and rolle into a 10-inch circle. Cut 5-6 (4 inch) circles from each crust. Roll each circle into an approximately 5 ½ inch circle.
Peel peaches and coarsely chop peach slices (about 2 cups). Divide chopped peaches among dough, placing in center of each circle (about ¼ c per circle). Pull dough over peaches and gather in center, pinching to seal and form a bundle. Place in a lightly greased 11x7 inch baking dish. Arrange remaining peaches around dumplings.
Stir together sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon and add ½ c water until blended. Pour over dumplings and peaches.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Serve with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream.
This will make for a happy Daddy!
