This is a fantastic recipe! I was looking for dessert recipes for homegrown peaches from my tree, of which I have quantities sliced up in my freezer. I have tried quite a few, and this one was the best so far. This recipe works just as well for (thawed) peaches. Because peaches are sweeter than baking apples, I reduced the amount of sugar. I still think it's a bit sweet; I'll reduce the sugar more next time. I also made it with fat-free sour cream; which worked just fine. When I was putting it together, I thought it couldn't possibly work...the cake mix/margarine mixture for the crust looked too dry. But the baking juices soaked down, and that held it together. If you're not fond of coconut, it can be skipped. I thought it added a nice texture. People say it was hard to scoop out; I had no problem. It is more of a cobbler-looking dish, not something you can cut in neat squares.I was using a Corning french white ceramic dish. You are less likely to have a burned/hard bottom using Pyrex, ceramic, or insulated Airbake pans, rather than plain metal. Thanks to Cathy for this delicious recipe!
