I love fruit but have never been a big fan of baked/heated fruit, so when I found this fresh peach dessert that doesn’t require any heating or baking I was excited to try it. The result? Even better than I had hoped for and it was a big hit with the entire family!
No-Bake Peaches & Cream Bars
2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cube butter (1/2 cup)
Mix together and spread evenly into the bottom of a 9X13 pan.
2 cups water
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
3 oz. pkg. peach jello
4 cups fresh peaches, sliced
Mix water, cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium low until thick (about 3-4 minutes of bubbling). Stir in the Jello and then chill in the fridge for about an hour. Add sliced peaches and then pour over the graham cracker crust.
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Cool Whip
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Mix up the topping with an electric mixer until smooth. Smooth over the top of the peach filling. You can serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator until you are ready. I actually made this the night before I served it and it was wonderful the next day! Enjoy!
