This is a summer dessert that is just yummy! I know we are heading into fall, but I wanted to make it at least once this summer and just got around to it. It is the best with fresh peaches, but frozen or canned will work as well.

Peach Dessert

Makes a 9x13 pan


2 packages graham crackers (about 20 crackers), crushed
1 square melted margarine or butter
4 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Cup sugar
2 Cups water
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 small package peach jello
4 Cups sliced fresh peaches
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
2 Cups Cool Whip, plus extra for topping (I substitute whipped cream)


Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted margarine or butter, and 4 Tablespoons powdered sugar. Set some crust mix aside to sprinkle the top of the dessert. Pack into pan and place in the freezer for the crust to set until ready for use.

2. Boil sugar, water, and cornstarch (be sure to make a cornstarch slurry before adding the cornstarch; ie. mix cornstarch with a bit of water before adding); Add jello, stirring to dissolve. After mixture has cooled a little, add fresh peaches. Set aside.

3. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and cool whip.

4. Layer in the following order:
a. Graham cracker crust
b. Cream cheese mixture
c. Peach mixture
d. Frost with cool whip (only after jello has set)
e. Sprinkle with crust mixture.

5. Chill until ready to serve.

Wow. That's crazy. I just had a lady at church tell me about this EXACT recipe on Sunday. I was about to call her for it, but now I don't have to. I can't wait to make it. It looks soooo good!
