How to make it

  • Cut peaches in half but going along the fruit, lengthwise(like you would cut an avocado :), and gently "twisting" to separate the sides. See Photo
  • Remove the pit with a spoon or knife tip.
  • Slice each half into about 1/8-1/4 inch slices. See Photo
  • Peel with knife just under skin. (some people like to remove the skin by boiling fresh peaches for about 1 minute and the skin "slips" off...I don't like to do this, because I don't like to precook them, at all, even for a minute :)
  • In medium heavy skillet(I used cast iron), melt butter and add sugar, OJ and rum. Cook until just boils, then immediately reduce heat.
  • Add peaches and stir to coat.
  • Cover and cook on low simmer for about 5 minutes while you prepare the dumplings. See Photo
  • For Dumplings

  • Combine flour, sugar, and salt in medium bowl
  • Add butter and toffee pieces and stir with a fork just to incorporate.
  • Add 1/3 cup of buttermilk and extract and carefully mix until just combined. Add more buttermilk, a little at a time, if needed, but do not over mix.. See Photo
  • Drop dough into liquid around peaches by about 1 1/2T full.(I use my lil cookie scoop) You should get about 2 dumplings per person from this amount of, about 12 dumplings. See Photo
  • Cover and simmer about 10 minutes to let dumplings cook. Remove lid and let cook an additional 5 minutes or so, until dumplings are cooked through. I remove the lid for the last part, because I don't like as doughy of a texture to the dumplings as you get from only letting them steam under the lid. Either way is fine, as long as the dumplings get cooked See Photo. :)
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired. (We like a scoop of ice cream, peaches, then dumplings, then spoon some additional sauce over the whole bit! :)

    Okay Keni, now I have time to review your recipe...mind doesn't look at good as yours....darn, but I know why. I put in the toffee chocolate bits before I put in the melted butter....oh hello....such a goob. Anyway I truely enjoyed it as for my son, just looked at it and said...hmm no, hubby didn't get a chance yet to try it. I had to use nectarines to make it because the commissary had no peaches. I loved the citrus and rum smell, it smelled like fall or christmas morning. I totally enjoyed this myself. And the dumplings were as pretty as yours. But thank you!!!
