This Peaches and Cream Dessert is a fantastic Fresh Peach Dessert recipe!

As soon as July rolls around, we begin to see beautiful, juicy yellow peaches popping up at our local farmers markets here in Norther Virginia. As much as my family and I love snacking on this juicy, golden fruit, I decided I must make a sweet, creamy dessert perfect for Southern summer days. This Peach Delight recipe is the ultimate fresh peach dessert!

Made with delicious layers of a pecan sandie crust, fluffy cream cheese, fresh peaches, whipped topping and chopped pecans, this dessert has a bit of everything! Creamy, crunchy, fruity, sweet and perfect for summer!

Is this peaches and cream dessert no-bake?

This delicious peach dessert is almost no-bake.  With the exception of baking the crust for about 5-7 minutes, simply to crisp it up, this dessert requires no additional cooking or baking.  The wonderful, creamy layers of this dessert are perfect for enjoying on a warm summer evening, perhaps sitting on the porch, with friends and family!  This dessert would be amazing with my Ginger Peach Iced Tea!

The pan I’m using to make these bars, is the OXO Good Grips Non-Stick 9″ x 13″ Cake Pan.  I use this pan a TON!!!  It’s perfect for making desserts like this, and is fantastic for cakes, bars and brownies, too!

What type of nuts are in this Peach Delight dessert?

Pecans! The pecans in this dessert add the perfect crunch to go with the creamy layers and fresh peaches.  Both in the crust and then sprinkled on top, the South’s favorite nut goes perfectly in this dessert. My Banana Pecan Sheet Cake and my Maple Pecan Fudge are some other amazing ways to enjoy pecans.

How long do I wait to slice this peach delight dessert?

Refrigerate this peaches and cream dessert at least 2 hours before slicing. The layers of this dessert will need time to set-up prior to slicing to achieve even, square slices.

What should I serve with peaches and cream dessert?

This dessert is great as is – it doesn’t really need ice cream or additional whipped topping. I would recommend serving my Ginger Peach Iced Tea, a Ginger Peach Moscow Mule or my Vanilla Bean Iced Coffee as drinks to go with this dessert.

Ingredients

    Crust:
  • 1 (11.3 oz) pkg., Pecan Sandies Cookies
  • 1/2 c. pecans
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. melted butter
  • Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 (8 oz. container) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Peach Layer:

  4. For the peach layer, peel and cut fresh or canned peaches into chunks. Add the peach chunks to the top of the cream cheese layer. Mix the pudding mix and milk. Pour over the top of the peaches.
  5. Top with the remaining container of frozen whipped topping and sprinkle with the toasted pecans. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving for the dessert to set-up.
