This week I am actually sharing a recipe, but I haven’t taken pictures yet, so I will just have to make this one more time (poor us) and try and get them in here ASAP.
First a brief history: Last fall we decided to surprise our families with a visit right after Etta was born. While we were there we had the baby blessing with all of our friends and family, it was such a wonderful event. After we had a potluck – YUMMY! and my sister in law, Shirley brought this. Um people this is THE BEST PEACH DESSERT ON THE PLANET! And it really takes no time at all to make it.
So here you go: Peach Heaven
1 large box Vanilla Wafers (I have substituted Animal crackers)
10 Cups Fresh Sliced Peaches
1 Pint Whipping Cream (whipped and sweetened to taste)
1. Smash wafers into crumbs, (reserve 1/4 of the crumbs) Sprinkle evenly over the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
2. In a bowl cream together powdered sugar, butter and egg. (I feel like this could be doubled…. but it adds a lot of calories so your choice. Also, I am not supposed to be eating raw eggs, so I substituted milk, it is basically a frosting of sorts anyway, you don’t want it too wet though, 1/4 cup should be plenty) Once mixed, put dots of mixture over crumbs and very carefully spread out. This is not an easy step, because it moved the crumbs so easily which is another reason doubling it might be helpful!
3. Slice all your peaches, I left the skins on cause I like them, but that is a personal preference remove them if desired. Layer them all over the “frosting” layer, nice and thick!
4. Cover all with whipped cream and sprinkle with remaining crumbs! This is best if it has been in the fridge for a few hours, although I will admit, the first time I made it I didn’t wait ten minutes to eat it, and I still loved it!
That is it! Enjoy! If you try this, you will love it, I promise! And it is so easy, your kids could help you make it.

Hi. I made the peach dessert with just a few minor changes. I added cream cheese and a dash of pineapple juice in the base that goes on top of the bottom crust, and I used a dash of caramel flavoring in with the whipped topping. It turned out to die for!!! Thank you for putting this recipe on here. I would never have thought of this scrumptious combination!!
