What is Spiced Rum?
Spiced rum is a rum base that has been flavored with natural herbs and spices like vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom.
What Can I Use In Place of Spiced Rum In This Recipe?
It’s perfectly fine to use rum extract in place of spiced rum. Two Tablespoons of rum extract equals 1 Tablespoon of dark rum. One Tablespoon of rum extract is equal to Five Tablespoons of light rum. In this recipe, I would use two Tablespoons of rum extract in place of the spiced rum.
What If I Can’t Find Fresh Peaches?
Fresh peaches are always best. However, when I can’t wait until summertime and fresh South Carolina peaches, I use frozen peaches. I don’t even thaw the peaches. They will thaw as they bake.
Easy Steps For Making Spiced Rum Peach Dumplings
Preheat oven to 350º F. Butter a 9×13 baking dish and set aside.
Cut each peach into 4 wedges and place one peach wedge along the wide end of each triangle. Roll up beginning with the wide end. Place wrapped peaches, point side up, in the prepared baking dish.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together. Stir in the spiced rum and vanilla extract.
Pour the sugar mixture evenly over the crescent rolls. Top with Mountain Dew.
Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and bake for 35 minutes or until crescent rolls are golden brown. Before serving, top off with some of the rum sauce and a scoop of ice cream.
How To Store Leftover Peach Dumplings
Store leftovers in the fridge for up to four days. To reheat, preheat the oven to 350º F. Heat for 15 minutes or until the dumplings are warmed all the way through.

- Add butter and brown sugar to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low until the butter has melted and the sugar is dissolved, stirring often. Stir in rum and vanilla. Pour the sugar mixture evenly over the crescent rolls. Top with Mountain Dew. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
- Bake for 35 minutes or until the crescent rolls are browned and the liquid is bubbly. Serve warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
You can use your favorite lemon-lime soda instead of Mountain Dew.
Two tablespoons of Rum extract can be used in place of the spiced rum. However, the spiced rum adds more flavor. Most of the alcohol burns off during baking.
Fresh peaches are best but I have made these peach dumplings with frozen peach slices and they turned out very good.
Before servings, I spoon some of the rum sauce over the warm dumplings and add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
