This is a rich delicious snack-size dessert that my family just loves. Serve with French vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream. They go fast and are so easy to make.

You can throw this dessert together really easily with items you probably have in your pantry - we love those kinds of recipes. The sweetness of the honey and the citrus flavor pair perfectly!

How To Make wrapped peaches in honey citrus sauce

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Open 1 can of peaches, drain and rinse with cold water. Gently dab with towel/paper towel to slightly dry. (You don't want them to be too wet or the biscuits won't close correctly).
  • 2
    Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Flatten gently then wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of peach, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap, and seal on the bottom. (You should have approximately 14-16 when finished).
  • 3
    Place the wrapped slices, sealed side down, in a 9x12x2 inch casserole/baking dish.
  • 4
    Sprinkle each one with cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake until golden brown, 20-35 minutes. (Optional: Add Honey Citrus Sauce before baking).
  • 5
    Sauce: In a medium saucepan. mix together 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey until smooth and sugar has melted completely.
  • 6
    Next, add an entire can of peaches (do not drain). Bring the sauce to a soft boil over medium heat until peaches soften slightly more. Use potato masher and mash in peaches to the sauces. (You can use a blender if this is easier for you, then just add it back to the saucepan).
  • 7
    Add lemon zest. Cut the other lemon in half squeezing juice into the mixture. Stir continuously for about 2 minutes. Set your heat to low and slowly simmer.
  • 8
    Add sour cream and mix together well (If you need to thicken this sauce you can use flour and water to thicken. It doesn't change the taste).
  • 9
    Slice remaining lemon and add to sauce and simmer on low heat until ready to use.
  • 10
    Optional: You can pour about 1/3 of your sauce over the wrapped peaches before baking or pour over just before serving. Either way these turn out delicious and rich in flavor your whole family will enjoy.
