2 (8-oz.) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
2 pounds fresh, firm, ripe peaches, peeled and quartered (4 large)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (12-oz.) can citrus-flavored soft drink (Southern Living tested with Mountain Dew)
Preheat oven to 350°. Unroll crescent rolls; separate into triangles. Place 1 peach quarter on wide end of each triangle; roll up triangles around peaches, starting at wide end. Place, point sides down, in a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch pan.
Stir together sugar, butter, and cinnamon, and drizzle over rolls; pour soft drink over rolls.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired. Serves 16 but can easily be cut in half.
