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 (8 ounce cans) crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups 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.
Make sure to visit the Kitchen on Facebook every Monday at 5 pm as we talk travel and share local recipes.
And make sure to share pics and tag @fromginaskitchen and @ibooktravelforu if you make this recipe!
