Fresh Peach Dessert

Recipe by  

"We look forward to peach season every year just so we can have this dessert. Make sure to use sweet, ripe peaches. You could also substitute other fruits such as raspberries or strawberries, but I think fresh peaches are the best."

  1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1/2 cup sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until evenly moistened, reserve 1/4 cup of the mixture for the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Heat marshmallows and milk in a large saucepan over low heat and stir until the marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat and cool.
  3. Whip cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Beat in 1/3 cup sugar until the cream forms stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the cooled marshmallow mixture.
  4. Spread 1/2 the cream mixture over the crust, arrange the peaches on top of the cream, then spread the remaining cream mixture over the peaches. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture over the cream. Refrigerate until serving.

Pretty dessert! Very tasty! We added Orange juice instead of milk just to add a little tartness to the sweet of the marshmallow! Lightens ups the sweetness a bit!Really great dish to share during the summer months!

This is a great end-of-summer recipe -- along with peaches being in season this time of year, we had marshmallows and graham crackers left over from a Labor Day camping trip! Thus, instead of mini marshmallows I used 5 c. of the regular size. Also, I had Redi-whip left over from a party so I used 7 c. of that instead of the cream and sugar. I added about 6 iced oatmeal cookies with the graham cracker mixture for added flavor. I used 6 white peaches, diced, and made these in muffin tins. I made a dozen individual servings in muffin tins, then had enough left over to fill a pie dish as well -- and still had about three cups of peaches left for snacking! I filled each muffin tin with about 1 T. graham cracker mixture, 1 T. whipped mixture, 1 1/2 T. peaches, 1 T. whipped mixture and a sprinkle of graham cracker mixture on top. The dessert holds up fairly well in the muffin tins and doesn't require spoons if you eat carefully.

Made one with peaches & one with strawberries for a party. Everyone loved them, but they seemed to like the strawberry one the best. I will make this again. :)

I have had this recipe for years, but it was made with either cherry or blueberry pie filling. Tried it with the peaches--it was phenomenol!! Thanks for a new twist on a family favorite.

This was great, However I had to make it with strawberries because I could not find really nice peaches, still it is delicious, next time I will definitely use peaches, Thanks for sharing

This was a wonderful dessert! I used a combination of ripe and almost ripe peaches some were slightly tart. I am glad because the creme is very sweet! I can see how the others liked it with strawberries for sure! I used the home made vanilla bean marshmallows from Whole Foods...! Ps...Wait for the marshmallow to cool...Don't ruin it with cool whip! It wouldn't compare!

Absolutely delicious. It melts in your mouth. I bet you can't just eat one piece. I brought it to a women's get together & it got rave reviews. In fact, I'm making it again for my dinner party. yummy. I followed the directions exactly & it was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.

Used fresh strawberries. It was amazing, my new favorite dessert. Our dinner guest just asked me for the recipe. Note: I added the whipped cream before the marshmallow mix cooled and it 'deflated' the whipped cream. I wonder if using a tub of coolwhip would change the taste/texture?
