Peaches & Cream Dessert

The hubs birthday is coming up soon and we celebrated a little early. Instead of the traditional birthday cake I made his favorite dessert. 

This is a recipe from my mom. My family has a great line of bakers and lucky for me I have a big sweet tooth myself and got to enjoy many of these desserts. 

We call it Peaches and Cream but most would say it's a peach crisp. Don't be fooled by the peaches either, it's not something you want to consume when watching your figure. 




This is a 4 layer process. Start with your flour, baking soda, vanilla pudding (make sure it's not instant), eggs and milk. Mix together until smooth and spread into 13 x 9 greased dish. 


Layer the peaches on top reserving some of the juice for later. You can use any fruit you'd like but we prefer peaches. 

I softened the cream cheese and then used my mixer to combine the cream cheese, sugar and reserved peach juice. 

Spread on top trying to avoid the edges (I didn't do a good job on that one but that's ok) 


The crumb layer is optional but I highly recommend. Work the flour and sugar into the butter and spread on top. Bake for 50-60min at 350 degrees. Allow to cool a little and it can be served warm or cold. 


Try not to eat it all...
