This Layered Peaches and Cream may just be the best peach dessert of all time! If you love fresh peaches, you need to try it. Juicy peaches, tangy cream cheese, and crunchy cookie crumbs all in one unforgettable dessert!
I know that I just posted a dessert recipe, but I am posting another one. I can’t help it. The peaches on our tree are ripe, so I had to use them. And this Peaches and Cream Dessert is so good it just has to be shared!
I adapted this amazing peach recipe from one of my friends, Megan. She brought it to our scrapbook weekend last year, and I have waited an entire 12 months to be able to make it. It is heavenly!
You start with a simple cookie crumb crust, topped with a silky cream cheese layer. After that comes a layer of fresh juicy sliced peaches. Top it off with a layer of freshly whipped cream and a sprinkling of more crumbs. Truly delectable!
Once you cut into it, the peaches get brown, so you need to finish it off the first time. I made half a batch because I knew I would feel solely responsible if those poor peaches turned brown. And I would have been forced to finish off the whole pan. I didn’t think that would be wise. Delicious, but not wise.
Thank you so much Megan for sharing your recipe. This stuff is seriously yummy!!
How to make Layered Peaches and Cream Dessert
- Pecan Sandies
- cream cheese
- vanilla extract
- fresh peaches
- whipping cream
Place about 2/3 of the crumbs in a 9×13 pan, set aside. Whip cream cheese and sugar together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Beat in the milk and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls over the crumbs. Spread carefully using a spoon dipped in hot water. Keep dipping the spoon in the water so the mixture doesn’t stick to it. The crumbs will slide around, but that is okay. It doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth.
Arrange the sliced peaches over the top. Whip the cream and add the sugar and vanilla. Spread over the peaches. Sprinkle the last half of crumbs over top. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours, or over night.
I have nut allergies. Is there something I can use in place of the Pecan Sandies?
Yes, you can use vanilla wafer crumbs or graham cracker crumbs.
Can I Use Canned Peaches for Peaches and Cream Dessert?
-While technically you can use canned or bottled peaches, the fresh peaches are what make this dessert spectacular. It just won’t be the same with canned peaches.
