What a fun conversation we had tonight in the Kitchen with Alesia!
Alesia shared some history and fun facts about her home state of Missouri. I got to share a fun recipe I found in the cool cookbook she brought me back from her recent visit home.
The recipe for “Peach Turnovers” is a local favorite, and couldn’t be easier to make! I can see (and taste ) why locals love this seasonal fruit dessert. But seriously, they could. be breakfast too!
Peach Turnovers (recipe found in “Missouri Back Road Restaurant Recipes”)
- 3 large peaches
- 2 crescent rolls 8 ounce cans
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 1/2 c sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 oz Mountain Dew
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon (I used more than a pinch, I sprinkled my cinnamon sugar mixture on all of them)
- Preheat oven to 350. Slice peaches and set aside. Unroll crescent dough, separate into 16 triangles. Please one pech slice at base of each and rollup. Arrange in a 9X13 pan as you work. Melt butter, add sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour over turnovers in baking pan. Pour Mountain Dew over turnovers, sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 30-40 minutes, or until turnovers are golden brown and liquid is bubbling.
